We love all things industrial automation. It’s what we do. We are a team of smart people that have made automation a passion, not just a career. When it comes to automation, you want the best team of nerds you can find, and you’ve landed on the right web site.

We provide expertly engineered automation and information solutions for industrial clients. Automation assets are just that, assets, and we work with you to understand how to maximize the value for your business through reducing total cost of ownership and integrating your automation systems into your business systems to maximize efficiency. Our team works with you to understand your big picture including your business needs, your process needs, and your particular ways of doing things, and then we work our magic to design, program, build, and commission your world class automation system.

 

Vertech is a control systems integration firm providing world class automation solutions for industrial clients.

Using standard hardware components and intuitive software design, our team of engineers and programmers designs and implements complex yet elegant control systems to automate industrial equipment, processes, and data collection and analysis. Our systems are developed using industry standard PLC and HMI/SCADA products to maximize your long term return on investment.

While we are somewhat “jacks of all trades”, the majority of our projects tend to be in the following industries: water/wastewater, alternative energy, manufacturing, mining, baggage handling, and food & beverage processing. Our industry-specific knowledge allows us to provide better, faster, and more comprehensive control system strategies for your systems.

Our Services

Industrial Control System Design and Integration

Industrial Control System Design and Integration

Using readily available off-the-shelf components and software, we design custom systems to meet the unique needs of your automation project. Our systems are developed using industry standard PLC and HMI/SCADA products to maximize the long term return on your investment. Our systems incorporate network design, PLC panel design, PLC programming, HMI/SCADA programming, control panel fabrication, commissioning, and service of your system.

Systems Upgrade and Migration

Systems Upgrade and Migration

Unfortunately most automation systems only last 15-20 years. Fortunately, our team is experienced in the unique technical and logistical challenges of a control system upgrade. Our project experience will minimize the risk to your current operations, and our industry knowledge can help you take full advantage of new technology to bring additional value to your system, not just put lipstick on a pig.

Upgrading Wastewater Treatment Facility Process Control Systems

When it comes to upgrading systems that control the utilities we rely on, in addition to designing and developing reliable systems, strategic implementations need to be planned to avoid shutdowns and service interruptions. In this case, our client had two active wastewater treatment facilities running on aging Allen-Bradley SLC-500 PLCs and Wonderware InTouch. Another issue is that documentation did not exist for many of the existing control panels, and the client had no faith in the drawings they had.
