New Partner Announcement (FESTO)


June 4th, 2014

We are pleased to announce our partnership with Festo Corporation effective June 5th, 2014. iAutomation is now an authorized provider within New England, Metro New York, Northern New Jersey, and Virginia.

Our mission is to partner with our customers to build machines that are revolutionary in innovation, performance, value and market acceptance. Since 1984, iAutomation has been supplying pneumatic solutions and this is an exciting partnership that will offer innovative solutions that are outside of the capabilities of our previous pneumatics suppliers. We are partnering with FESTO because they share the same values and understanding of technology trends that help our customers become leaders within their respective markets.

The partnership with FESTO is a replacement, and an upgrade, to the MAC and PHD pneumatic product lines. We will continue to support all installed solutions, but we’ll take another look to see if we can increase your productivity further with FESTO.

iAutomation will continue to take standard orders for PHD until June 20th, 2014; however, MAC Valves has decided to cancel our contract prematurely. At this point iAutomation is no longer an authorized distributor. While it is unfortunate that MAC has made this decision, we want to transition your hardware solution so that we can continue to be a valuable partner.

We are able to fulfill all open orders as of 5/22/14, but we are no longer authorized to support our customers with any new quotes or orders for MAC products. We will continue to supply MAC/PHD components within custom assemblies that we build, if we are not able to provide a better overall assembly solution with FESTO. If you have an immediate need for MAC parts, please call MAC Valves directly at (800) 622-8587.
