Cimplicity HMI; Portal and Historian, in an effort to do what we do so well for other companies: deliver manufacturing intelligence and improve productivity.

GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms has a long, successful history in the automation industry. For more than 20 years we have brought you data-rich solutions to improve your operations. We continue to make investments in new products and our talented engineers use their creativity to deliver innovative solutions to help you transform and grow your business.

As the global marketplace further expands to regions never before thought possible we are all facing similar challenges. We all need to find ways to be more efficient; to be more productive; and to be more innovative in the way we operate. While there are boundless opportunities for growth in countries such as China, India and the United Arab Emirates, no company is insulated from the rising costs of doing business.
