Marshfield, WI-based ESE Inc. has achieved the Control

System Integrators Association (CSIA) certified member status. It passed an

independent third-party audit on criteria that encompass business and project

management processes, procedures and performance. These criteria include:

  • General management
  • Human resources management
  • Financial management
  • Marketing, business development and sales management
  • Project management system development lifecycle supporting activities 
  • Quality assurance management.
    •  

      Compared by independent auditors to the ISO 9001 and ISO 9004 programs for its standardization and reliability, the CSIA is considered the industry standard for system integration project confidence. According to Bob Lowe, CSIA executive director, "CSIA is committed to the business development of control system integration companies and their implementation of best practices in order to provide a healthy, low-risk channel for the application of technology to their industrial clients." ESE will retain the CSIA certified designation for three years, at which time they will be reevaluated based on the same rigorous criteria.

      Additionally, ESE proved a solid understanding of the food and beverage industry and the specialized requirements necessary to comply with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Bioterrorism Act and current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs).

      ESE has been designing and commissioning plant automation systems for food and beverage applications since 1981. The company integrates analytical instruments with control systems and software to improve plant utilization, yields product quality and delivery.
