In America, we know the appreciation that comes with working hard. But we also know the value that comes with working smart. In a world in which we want things faster, built with precision and quality, it comes as no surprise that industries nation-wide have embraced automation and robotics into their operations. We’re one of the original Electrical Controls Design and Build Companies from the Great Lakes Area (aka Automation Alley) and through our Madison Heights Michigan office, we’ve grown our expertise in robotics and automation throughout America with over 20 years of experience in automated control systems.
We’d love to share a little more about what makes our operations in the US so unique.
Our Skilled Team
Our Michigan office is led by skilled industry experts. We’ve built a roster of highly trained and talented individuals who consistently perform beyond expectations, always striving for innovative and effective solutions for our clients. When working with our Michigan office team, you may meet Brian Largo, our Engineering Manager, Controls, or Craig Fonger, our Robotics, Manager. Both of these team managers are committed to innovative industry growth, and mentor their teams in the safest, most effective, and industry-leading techniques and solutions.
At CSI, we pride ourselves on the quality and effectiveness of the technology and processes that we use, and the certifications that we hold. One of the pillars of our operations is the eagerness to embrace innovative technologies that facilitate our engineering and building of the highest calibre robotics solutions and automated control systems for our clients.
Among other systems we’ve found value in, we’ve amplified our use of EPLAN – a design software and service solutions provider in the fields of electrical, automation, and mechanical engineering. As a Level 1 Certified Systems Integrator, our engineers are certified in the use of EPLAN which we use to provide premium documentation, simplified production of projects, and increased accuracy.
Siemens Automation Systems
While more widely used in Asia and Europe, Siemens automation systems are picking up steam here in North America – and for good reason! We’ve found value in using Siemens platforms and automation, leveraging their ultra-modern systems and machines to provide our clients with industry-leading, efficient, flexible, and cost-effective solutions.
We pride ourselves on the quality, safety, and effectiveness of the robotics and automations solutions that we provide. To ensure we stay on top of best practices, we maintain a number of certifications among our team and for our organization as a whole. Below are a few of them:
UL has become revered as a global safety science leader that supports companies in their efforts to exercise safety, bolster security, deliver quality and sustainability, manage risk, and achieve regulatory compliance. We proudly follow UL Industrial Control Panel Standards and work in collaboration with UL certified partners.
General Motors Certifications
Knowledge of a wide array of design and documentation specifications are helpful when it comes to finding the most effective solutions for our clients. With his specialized focus in automotive, Brian Largo, our Engineering Manager, Controls, holds GM GCCH-1 (Global Common Controls Hardware) Standard and GCCS-2 (Global Common Controls Software) Standard certifications.
