How a California Quarry Doubles Production, Lowers Costs

Canyon Rock turned to Siemens Totally Integrated Automation, TIA Portal engineering software and Profinet communications for rapid expansion and increased profitability.

Faced with completing one of the largest projects in its history, Canyon Rock, a Northern California quarry, knew success depended on making major changes to its operations—and making them quickly. It needed to double production to meet the specifications of the bid it had just won, a sizable effort that required outside help.
