System integrators are invited to apply for the first-ever Control Engineering System Integrator of the Year Awards. Deadline for application is Aug. 1, 2006. The goal of the contest is to help end-users identify and evaluate excellence in the system integration arena. The winner will be featured on the cover Control Engineering’s 2007 Automation Integrator Guide, the most comprehensive in print and online directory of system integrators in North America.

Control Engineering , a Reed Business Information publication, defines a system integrator as a “contract engineering firm or an engineering division of a larger company that can design and implement computerized control systems for industrial machinery, manufacturing lines, or other automated facilities that produce either a commodity or a finished product.”

The awards are supported by the Control Systems Integrators Association and were announced at the group’s annual meeting in Panama City, FL, in May. Candidates do not need to be members of an industry association to win. Judging will be based on excellence in business skills, technical competence, and customer satisfaction. Applications are available at www.controleng.com/SIYaward .
