Dubai, United Arab Emirates, (AETOSWire): Yokogawa won the ‘2019 Middle Eastern Process Automation Company of the Year Award’ at the 2019 Frost & Sullivan Middle East Best Practices Awards Banquet held in Dubai.
Yokogawa is a respected brand in the process automation market space and a renowned player in the Middle East for providing innovative solutions for its customers, especially in the energy and chemical industries.
In the context of process automation, the levels of maturity, legacy systems and complexity vary across different industries, and even across different end-users. This makes it a very complex industry to service. Yokogawa excels in this space, having built up a unique approach centred on collaboration and co-innovation. Yokogawa can accurately assess end-user needs and deliver customized solution offerings that provide high returns on investment while easing the implementation and integration process.
Congratulating Yokogawa on the award, Abhay Bhargava, Director, Industrial Practice, Frost & Sullivan, said, “Yokogawa has excelled in leveraging digitalisation and innovation to deliver customer value – and in the process, successfully carved a niche in the highly competed Middle East market for process automation. This is especially visible in the highly demanding oil and gas industry. With the recovery of the energy market and a strategic shift in demand towards an operational excellence focus, Yokogawa foresees an increased thrust towards embracing digitalisation on part of end-users. We strongly believe that its portfolio of solutions and services offered is the key differentiator to deliver excellence and at the same time optimises the entire process value chain.”
Accepting the award, Norinao Sato, Director and SEVP, Yokogawa Middle East & Africa, said, “It is an honour to be recognized as the leader in the Middle East Process Automation space.
