Rockwell Automation acquired Automation Control Products (ACP), a provider in centralized thin client, remote desktop and server management software.

ACP’s two core products, ThinManager and Relevance, provide manufacturing and industrial leaders with visual display and software solutions to manage information and streamline workflows.

This acquisition supports Rockwell’s move to connect information across the plant floor to the rest of the enterprise.

“Today’s plant engineers turn to our technology innovation and domain expertise to help improve their manufacturing quality and reliability while increasing productivity,” said Frank Kulaszewicz, senior vice president of Architecture and Software, Rockwell Automation.

ThinManager centralizes the management and visualization of content from the control room to the end user. It streamlines workflows and allows users to reduce hardware operation and maintenance costs. Relevance extends the ThinManager functionality through proprietary location-based technology, enabling users secure mobile access to content and applications from anywhere.
