Polaris Automation was established in 1984,

when founder J.D. Cooke saw the need for PLC programming services that spanned manufacturing sectors. Within 10 years, J.D.’s vision to supply customers with high-quality, affordable solutions grew Polaris Automation from a small team to a dynamic group of industry experts.

Since 2005, Polaris Automation has lived out J.D.’s vision under the direction of Scott Cooke. Under Scott’s leadership, Polaris Automation has experienced double digit growth rates over the last 10 years.

Throughout the years, technological advances have provided opportunities for our team to leverage its knowledge and expertise to provide innovative solutions never even imagined in 1984. Today, the manufacturing industry finds itself in an exciting transformational period, and Polaris Automation is committed to leading the way.

With uncompromising integrity, honest assessments, proactive service, and transparent communication, we stay with our clients every step of the way –

connecting business, operations, and manufacturing units together like never before.
