Control System Upgrades Designed for Your Needs

At South Shore Controls, we go beyond being PLC and DCS system integrators to take your entire operation into account. Our team of project managers and electrical, mechanical and controls engineers will work with you to develop a customized control system upgrade for your specific situation. Our experts will manage the entire project from start to finish.

The process begins with a plant visit and a thorough investigation into your operational needs. After the initial evaluation, we map out your control system upgrade and provide a budget. Once you’ve approved the plan, we complete the design, manufacture the system and install it, providing one-stop shopping. With an in-house fabrication shop and machine shop, we have complete control over every aspect of your project. Instead of dealing with multiple providers, you can write one purchase order to cover the entire job.

Besides the actual system, we’ll also deliver a complete set of drawings in SolidWorks, along with CAD drawings, operator’s manuals and the training your staff needs to get the most out of your control system upgrade. Our turnkey approach ensures you’ll get everything you require.
