Schneider Electric Re-Brands PlantStruxure to EcoStruxure

By October 10, 2019 Vendor News

Schneider Electric recently re-branded their “PlantStruxure” IOT offering to “EcoStruxure Plant” as part of their internal global re-branding project. Moving forward, Schneider is planning to place greater focus on their initiatives to promote efficiency and sustainability, leveraging the EcoStruxure branding to widen the scope from a “Plant” focus to a much broader “Ecosystem” focus.

EcoStruxure is an IoT-enabled architecture and platform that is intended to make facilities safer, more reliable, connected, efficient, and sustainable. It is a key step in driving digital transformations for facilities that are looking to promote interconnectivity and modernize their systems.
