Automation Direct Pty Ltd is a privately held Australian company serving the Asia Pacific region, with our alliance with AutomationDirect.com in the USA which is a subsidiary of Koyo Electronics (part of the multi-billion dollar Koyo Seiko group of companies). Koyo had designed and manufactured PLCs for some of the world's largest PLC companies, including General Electric, Texas Instruments, and Siemens. However, the future plans of these companies and Koyo were not compatible. Tim Hohmann, founder and company captain of PLCDirect, (AutomationDirect.com) established the company in January 1994 as the first entity within the Koyo Seiko group to concentrate on the micro PLC market.
