A word from the Manager of STRATON AUTOMATION


Over the last 20 years, STRATON AUTOMATION became an unmissable company when it refers to software-PLC technologies.

More than ever, straton can be implemented on any platform, supporting most of the latest trendy communication protocols, allowing to bring automation capabilities on any device.

Thanks to a high quality and interoperability driven development mindset, we are now able to propose solutions for a wide range of industries.

As it has always been, our strategy is to be able to answer to your needs before you ask: following the latest trends of the market,  implementing always more functionalities linked to new and evolving technologies, and pushing straton to be ever more accessible, competitive, polyvalent, and robust.

Today thanks to our technologies, our excellent developer team, our supporters putting customer care as their “top mission”, and all the people involved here to push the company at the highest level, my first wish as a Managing Director is to share great and successful adventures with you!
