Sussex, Wisconsin (PRWEB) June 17, 2014
The Industrial Controls Company (ICC) recently announced it has joined forces with Control Masters, Inc., located in Downers Grove, IL. This strategic move will combine the manufacturing expertise and control system design and integration experience of two industry leaders, providing OEM’s and end users with a wider breadth of services, more capacity and unmatched expertise.
Many of today’s manufacturers outsource their control panel design and manufacturing to qualified vendors that help them navigate a complex regulatory path. Because certifications and regulations are dynamic, contracting with specialized manufacturing and integration companies provides valuable expertise. They are finding more and more that the pool of world-class engineering resources is increasingly limited and that partnering with companies like ICC is an ideal solution.
The combined companies will deliver a unique set of services, giving OEM’s and end users access to a collaborative design process, rigorous quality system and strong continuous improvement methodology. It will strengthen their ability to develop new products faster and create more accurate documentation. The addition of this division will immediately give customers much larger capacity across multiple locations.
Control Masters, Inc. has decades of industrial control system integration experience, dating back to 1961. They continually raise the bar in utilizing project management best practices. Strict adherence to an 11 step project methodology has lead to a track record of projects that are delivered on time and on budget.
Ensuring success of systems integration projects requires planning, vision and experience. At the very beginning, the team determines project scope, schedule, deliverables and proposed system architecture. They make sure projects stay on the right path because team members use proactive communication. Deliverables include functional specifications, acceptance testing, system development, system integration, hardware and software design and panel manufacture. When it arrives at the customer location, expert installation supervision, system commissioning and start-up are provided.
According to Don Lavrenz, Managing Partner of The Industrial Controls Company, Inc., “This combination of two great companies presents numerous opportunities for manufacturers looking for a true partner to work with on their next control systems project. We believe in making the customer successful above all else.”
Fred Horn, President of the new division, commented, “The complementary nature of our businesses will combine two core competencies giving OEM’s and end users access to system integration and panel manufacturing from one source. Our deep experience in project management and focus on quality systems give customers complete reassurance.”
The company will be operating as Industrial Controls of Illinois, Inc. dba The Industrial Controls Company, Inc. – Control Masters Division.
