Siemens reshuffles North American Industry business

Ludwig to head operations; Dulaney to oversee Industry and new Infrastructure + Cities group

10/06/2011


Siemens has created a new division to manage and coordinate its growth in transportation and power distribution in North American while realigning its operational structure for its Industry Division.

Siemens appointed Daryl Dulaney as chief executive officer of the company’s newly-formed Infrastructure + Cities (IC) Sector in North America. Dulaney remain president and chief executive officer of Siemens Industry, Inc. At the same time, Siemens named Helmuth Ludwig CEO of the Industry Sector in North America.

In 2010, Siemens refocused on several key industrial markets as well as expand its service offerings across the globe. It was created to “develop and deliver solutions tailored to the unique challenges within their businesses.” Its primary product areas were drive technologies, industry automation and metals, with supporting customer service built around it.

“In North America we have a spectacular team of more than 15,000 employees focused on growing our business by partnering with customers to address their unique business challenges and helping them become more productive, flexible and sustainable,” said Ludwig, CEO of Siemens Industry Sector, North America. “Ultimately, by enriching our industry expertise, providing ongoing value added service and offering one face to the customer, we are well positioned to grow the business in a way that we previously could not.”

The new IC Sector will be organized into five divisions: Building Technologies, Low and Medium Voltage (power distribution for utilities and facilities), Mobility and Logistics (traffic, transport and logistics management), Rail Systems (rail vehicles) and Smart Grid (intelligent power grids).

“Cities face challenges of providing safe, comfortable and sustainable environments that enable a high quality of life for citizens and that make them attractive to businesses,” says Daryl Dulaney, chief executive officer, Siemens Infrastructure & Cities Sector, North America. “The new sector is well positioned, with 87,000 employees worldwide and the most comprehensive portfolio in the market, to minimize those challenges by delivering solutions to city halls, utilities and transportation authorities to make them more competitive and sustainable for the future.”

Annual Salary Survey

After two years of economic concerns, manufacturing leaders once again have homed in on the single biggest issue facing their operations:

It's the workers—or more specifically, the lack of workers.

The 2017 Plant Engineering Salary Survey looks at not just what plant managers make, but what they think. As they look across their plants today, plant managers say they don’t have the operational depth to take on the new technologies and new challenges of global manufacturing.
