Industrial Controls & Automation

Designing and building a reliable, quality-assured control or automation solution is as demanding as engineering the system itself. Our qualified and experienced electrical and design engineers will work with you to meet the unique needs of your individual project or application.

Custom Control Panels

As Unique as Your Application

At John Henry Foster, every controls solution is individually engineered and made-to-order…for a unique, one-off project or a complex controls challenge where no two installations are the same. We’ll partner with you to maximize manufacturing and overall design efficiency, adjusting as needed and making sure to keep you in the loop the entire time.

Built with a Commitment to Quality

We understand it’s hard to find someone who cares about your business as much as you do. With experience gained over decades and focused attention given to each, one-of-a-kind project, we promise to provide the highest level of quality in the industry.
