Hargrove Controls + Automation ranked #23 out of 100 in the annual list of System Integrator Giants, according to the 2021 Global System Integrator Report, jumping seventeen spots from last year’s ranking of #40. Published by Control Engineering and Plant Engineering magazines, the list ranks the top global companies involved in system integration projects throughout manufacturing.
