History. 1991: Created thanks to Volkswagen
WETRON automatización SA was founded in 1991 following the job given by Volkswagen to our parent company in Germany to help transfer the SEAT plant in the Zona Franca area of Barcelona to a modern plant in Martorell.

Constant growth and consolidation

WETRON has kept growing in Spain ever since, becoming involved in a large number of projects and facilities in different areas of technology for various industrial sectors.
In 2014, WETRON moved to new offices with double the surface area. We have our own workshops, a design engineering and programming/scheduling department, project coordination engineers and electrical installation teams, a staff of 65 professionals in all.

We are your automation and control provider

Today, WETRON is involved in the field of specialized engineering for turnkey electrical installations for the automation and control of industrial processes. It is one of the leading suppliers of this type of installation for the automotive, logistics, aviation and pharmaceutical industries.

Ingeniería y desarrollo de proyectos de automatización industrial: diseño eléctrico, planificación y dimensionado detalladosMost of the projects requested by our clients are turnkey projects.
In this case, WETRON automation technology handles the hardware and software planning. After this phase, we coordinate, oversee and develop the software applications required: PLC, Scada, PC and robot.
In our workshop we build the electrical enclosures, boxes and panels needed for the installation.
We adapt to our client’s production timelines and assemble the product onsite and then start-up the installation. We then train and provide product support to the client’s staff, delivering the documentation in the formats requested. If the client wants, we can also maintain the installation.

Planificación de harware y software en proyectos llave en mano para automatizar y controlar procesos industrialesAt WETRON automation technology, we study, plan and size the hardware and software for the projects we undertake.
Our services include electrical design using standard programs in the industry: E-Plan and AutoCAD. We can also write the documentation in multiple languages if required.
Finally, we carefully plan the execution of the project.

Desarrollo de software para todo tipo de aplicaciones: PLCs, interfaces, supervisión y control, comunicación industrial, robots industriales, lenguajes de alto nivel.Our programmers, who have ample experience on several projects, develop software in the following areas:

• Programming PLCs from various brands: (Siemens, Allen-Bradley, Phoenix Contact, Omron, Schneider);
• Custom applications in high-level languages (Pascal, Visual Basic, C++, etc.);
• Human-machine interfaces: (Siemens, Panel-View, Esa, Pro-Face);
