Controlotron employs approximately 120 people, to whom Siemens will extend formal offers of employment one week prior to the closing.
"The purchase of Controlotron will strengthen Siemens' portfolio and broaden its presence in the process instrumentation market," said Aubert Martin, President and CEO, Siemens Energy & Automation, Inc.
