Bosch Rexroth Earns Reader’s Choice Awards

Bosch Rexroth Earns Reader’s Choice Awards

Control Design readers recognize Rexroth as the most preferred brand in two categories: hydraulic components and linear actuators/slides/guides

Bosch Rexroth earned two 2012 Reader’s Choice Awards following balloting by readers of Control Design magazine. Readers named the company as a preferred brand in two categories: Hydraulic Components and Linear Actuators/Slides/Guides.

The annual awards program uses an unaided poll of 15,000 subscribers that asked participants to name the companies that provide them the best technology value for the products they use. Responses are top-of-mind rather than selected from a list of predefined vendors and product brands.

Approximately 15,000 Control Design subscribers who have buying influence or buying authority for industrial automation and control products, received questionnaires for this year’s awards program. Voting is only for machine builders and system integrators, vendors are not eligible to participate.

A complete list of 2012 Reader’s Choice Award recipients appears in the September issue of Control Design magazine.
