When asked what sets Hargrove Controls + Automation apart, Burton replied “By teaming with Hargrove on both engineering design and automation, our clients are able to lower their risk, increase communication and planning from the start, as well as reduce change, and – ultimately – complete their project goals quicker and at a better value.”
The CSIA seeks to enable industries everywhere to have access to low-risk, safe and successful applications of automation technology by advancing the business practices of the system integration industry. CSIA helps its members improve their business skills, provides a forum to share industry expertise, and promotes best practices for business management.
“To be recognized on a national level from such a prestigious organization is a true honor for the Hargrove team,” said Burton. Hargrove was also recognized by Control Engineering and Plant Engineering Magazines on their list of System Integrator Giants earlier this year.
