Automations & Controls

Automation and Control department was founded with the mission of covering industrial necessities in automation, control and process monitoring. We solve interconnection problems between data and equipment signals. In consonance with our Digital Skills department, we create “IT & OT Convergence” that performs integration of operation technologies with IT systems.

Our priority is to provide high-quality service to our clients. We implement this policy entirely in each level: from management toward all those people who form part of A&C department. We are caring about environment and security as mail axes of our job. We focus on set strategical partnerships with each client. No matter the size or nature of the project, we focus on reach maximum benefit in minimum time possible.
