Power Automation America, Inc.
After an extensive evaluation of
CNC products, Giddings & Lewis (a
machine tool builder in Fond du
Lac, WI) found that the Power Automation
PC-based CNC product had the best
performance, value and potential
so G&L entered into a business relationship
with Power Automation. Power Automation
is the German company that developed
the original version of the control.
G&L had trademarked the name,
sold the control under that product
name. In the summer of 2000, the
division within G&L involved in
the CNC business decided to stop
the development of the G&L CNC products.
When G&L made the decision to exit
the CNC control product business,
Power Automation formed the US company
INC. and then
the G&L open architecture PC-based CNC business. The entire staff
consisted of former Giddings & Lewis employees. As a Division of a
world wide operating, publicly traded Holding company (Power Automation
AG) the name was changed in January 2008 to Power Automation America, Inc. In October 2009 the company moved to Houston Texas to have a more centralized access to the North and South American Market.
