ETG celebrates 10 years in the US, China and South Korea

11/2017 | This year three out of the five EtherCAT Technology Group (ETG) offices celebrated their 10th anniversary. In 2007 the ETG, with global headquarters in Nuremberg, Germany, had just reached the milestone of 500 member companies and decided to expand the organization’s international presence. The ETG office in Yokohama, Japan had already been founded in 2006. The next step was to open up offices in the US, China and South Korea in order to best support the local ETG member companies.

The international ETG offices have responsibilities that range from technical support to marketing. Events such as educational industrial Ethernet seminars and Plug Fests are coordinated locally and developed according to each region’s needs. Participation in trade shows is also organized by the respective office. Furthermore, these offices support the local ETG member companies with the application and implementation of EtherCAT technology. By statute, ETG members must be businesses or institutes, not private individuals.
