PEER Group recently announced that is has become a Brooks Solution Provider, serving North America and Europe.

As part of the agreement, PEER Group and Brooks will act as independent suppliers to the customer, but will also work cooperatively to ensure delivery of timely, high-quality solutions.

PEER Group will receive advanced training on new Brook’s products and upgrades and will have access to Brooks engineering for rapid problem solving.

CEO of PEER Group, Mike Kropp, says when one of their customers chooses Brooks as their automation hardware platform, they are confident they can complete the integration quickly and efficiently.
