System integrators achieve registered status

Exton, Pa. - The Control System Integrator Association (CSIA) recently announced the names of the first 18 of its members to successfully achieve Registered Integrator status.


Exton, Pa. - The Control System Integrator Association (CSIA) recently announced the names of the first 18 of its members to successfully achieve Registered Integrator status. They gained this distinction by passing an independent auditor's examination of their business practices per benchmarks and standards established by the CSIA. [For more information, read 'Take Chance, Guesswork Out of Selecting a Control System Integrator,' Control Engineering Automation Integrator Guide , mid-December 2000.] Initial recipients include:


  • Advanced Automation Associates (Exton, Pa.);

  • Advanced Integration Group (Pittsburgh, Pa.);

  • Applied Control Technology (Texarkana, Ark.),

  • Applied Industrial Automation (North Charleston, S.C.);

  • Automation Systems & Control (Marion, Ia.);

  • Bay-Tec Engineering (Napa, Calif.);

  • Bachelor Controls (Sabetha, Ks.);

  • Engineered Energy Systems (Livingston, N.J.);

  • TransAmerican Automation (Charleston, W.V.);

  • Loman Control Systems (Lititz, Pa.);

  • Matrix Technologies (Maumee, O.);

  • Programmable Control Services (Spokane, Wa.);

  • PCT Engineered Systems (Davenport, Ia.);

  • Pro-Tech Engineering (Akron, O.);

  • RoviSys (Aurora, O.);

  • Superior Controls (Plaistow, N.H.);

  • Total Systems Design (West Chester, Pa.); and

  • TVC Systems (Portsmouth, N.H.).


Besides announcing its registered integrators, CSIA has also released an overview of its annual market outlook study. Collectively, its 128 member companies employ more than 2,000 engineers and account for nearly $0.8 billion of total sales, which are split more-or-less evenly between product and service sales.


By comparison, a recent report, 'Industrial Controls' by the Freedonia Group (Cleveland, O.), cites an overall U.S. market figure of $2.1 billion for system integration services during 2000, excluding product sales. That study projects the integration market to grow to more than $3 billion by 2005. A related study, 'Industrial Automation and Control System Integrators' from Bullseye Marketing (Fond du Lac, Wis.), found that system integrators themselves believe their automation product purchases will increase by almost 150% over that same interval.


For more information about these and 1,000 other automation and control system integrators, visit . Multi-criteria search engines are available there to identify system integrators by industries and areas served as well as engineering specialties, product experience, and corporate and professional affiliations. CE Online's advanced search function for system integrators can sort results by geographic areas served, product experience, industries served, engineering specialties, corporate affiliations (if the integrator is a value-added reseller, authorized system integrator, or distributor), annual revenue, and professional affiliations, or search for an integrator by name. Access the search function from CE's home page or from .


In addition, mid-December 2001's print version of the Control Engineering Automation Integrator Guide will include listings for some 1,000 automation system integrators, along with more from CSIA and articles to help users with their next system integration project.
