A Message from Randy Wire, President

Monday, 11 July 2016

Dear Friends & Customers:

As you probably know, on May 2, 2016 we were acquired by Preh IMA Automation (PIA), an international leader in automation based in Germany. For more details, you can read the official release here.

We were purchased by PIA on the merit of our expertise and character – not just our location and technology.

Evana Automation has been at the forefront of industrial automation for over 50 years and word got out: our commitment to building automated assembly machines and other robotics systems of the absolute highest quality and efficiency stands apart from the competition. It’s not just our capabilities that define our reputation, however; our emphasis on strong project management helps drive our 98% on-time delivery record.

PIA recognized these traits in our team, and as a result, our day-to-day business operations are unchanged. We are thrilled to reiterate all 100+ employees were retained in the deal and our core competencies will only grow – right here in Evansville. The transition will be seamless for clients.

One thing that has changed, of course, is the name on our building and letterhead.

To ensure a uniform corporate image, we are now incorporated as Preh IMA Automation Evansville Inc. (note: this may at times be shorted to PIA Evansville). Content on this website will begin to reflect this, as well as our social media handles and other business pages you may follow.

We are excited about the new phase of our history. Please continue checking our news page and social media profiles for more information about the work and the team that we take so much pride in. And don't miss this video which highlights our wide range of capabilities and leading edge technology:
