Fieldbus Foundation and HART Communication Foundation members approve formation of FieldComm Group
The final step in constructing a single organisation to lead process automation communications and integration technologies was completed when the members of both the HART® Communication Foundation and Fieldbus FoundationTM approved the merger proposed by their respective boards through a voting process that concluded on August 30. This completes a yearlong study and diligence period by a dedicated team of volunteers representing each of the foundations.
The new corporation, called FieldComm Group, will be led by a board of directors composed of representatives of the collective companies from the current boards of each foundation. Hans-Georg Kumpfmueller has been elected as the inaugural chairman of the board. Mr. Kumpfmueller will lead the direction of the FieldComm Group and oversee the addition of FDI LLC in mid-2015.
