System Integrator of the Year 2022


Hargrove Controls & Automation is honored and humbled to be named a 2022 System Integrator of the Year by Control Engineering/Plant Engineering magazine, one of the highest honors in the automation industry. Each year a panel of Control Engineering and Plant Engineering magazine editors and automation industry experts convene to select the System Integrator of the Year Award winners. Three general criteria are considered for the selection of winners: business skills, technical competence, and customer satisfaction.
