We are confident that this collaboration will bring many benefits for customers of Polaris Automation and TCI. We look forward to a seamless integration and a prosperous future together.

The collective experience and interest of Total Controls, Inc. (TCI) has been in developing scalable and intuitive batch solutions that could be easily deployed in any industrial environment. After more than 30 years of operation and with retirement of the principles eminent, TCI began searching for the right industrial systems integration partner. Of primary concern was finding a company with a solid background in batch and process control, and an excitement to develop relationships to understand and support our existing batch control customers. The search led us to Polaris Automation which checked all of the boxes. Due to our appreciation of the strong relationships developed with our customer base, we wanted to ensure that those customers would have the commitment needed to support current systems and be ready to implement new strategies in the future. Quality comes from the top down. The commitment to excellence that the Polaris leadership team has shown us has been first class. We have also met and worked with several of their staff who have all displayed that same commitment to excellence.
