To help build its new state-of-the-art postal automation headquarters in the United States, Siemens Dematic relied on the expertise of four sister companies. Located on the northwest side of Arlington Ballpark, Arlington, Texas, the 233,000-square-foot headquarters includes a three-story office building and adjoining R&D facility.

Four Siemens U.S. operating companies provided technology to the project: Siemens Building Technologies Inc.; Siemens Energy & Automation Inc.; Siemens Information and Communication Networks; and Osram Sylvania, a Siemens company.

The facility's energy management system is based on Siemens Building Technologies' Apogee® building automation system, which also controls and monitors all of the HVAC equipment, as well as the lighting, fire alarm and detection system, and security systems. Siemens manufactured many of the HVAC components used in the facility, such as valves, actuators, thermostats, and sensors.

The headquarters is the first facility in the United States to feature Siemens Building Technologies' new SiPass® security system. Other highlights include the XLS Firefinder®, the FM200 extinguishing system, and voiceover Internet Protocol (IP) phone system.
