As the demand for industrial personal computers (IPCs) in the U.S. continues to grow, Siemens is making it easier for customers to get their units faster. The units selected for onshore assembly represent the most popular configurations from our U.S.-based customers. Additional IPC models will be added over time to the Lebanon, Ohio facility to further meet customer needs.
These U.S.-assembled units will be built with the same rigorous standards as those produced in Germany, with more than 50 tests, including a 36-hour burn in test, to guarantee the highest quality.
IPCs now produced at the Lebanon facility are the Nanobox/Nanopanel PC (IPC227E/IPC277E) and the Microbox/Micropanel PC (427D/477D). The Microbox/MIcropanel PC (IPC427E/477E) is scheduled to be produced there beginning in spring 2018. Those configurations not produced in the Lebanon facility will continue to be available from the factory in Germany.
Customer benefits of product production at the Lebanon facility include:
- Significantly shorter lead times for faster delivery. Lead times will be reduced by 40 percent.
- Products will say “Assembled in USA” to qualify for government contracts.
- Factory tours are available to customers to experience firsthand Siemens quality and standards in our production process.
