Electronic Drives and Controls successfully renews its CSIA benchmark certification, reaffirming their commitment to maintaining the highest level of technical and business performance standards in delivering innovative control system integration solutions for industrial automation and drive technology.
Parsippany, NJ – December 5, 2023 – Electronic Drives and Controls, Inc. (EDC), a leading control system integrator and field service company for industrial automation and drive technology, today announced the company has achieved recertification by the Control System Integrator Association (CSIA), meeting the highest industry standard for successful management of a control system integration business.
“Maintaining our CSIA certification helps promote the documenting of operating procedures that ultimately removes many obstacles to growth,” says Chuck Dillard, Vice President of Electronic Drives & Controls. “It helps to make sure the business is set up for longevity. Customers want to know you will be there for the long haul and the CSIA best practices committee does a great job providing a road map to that end.”
CSIA, a global trade association, is dedicated to advancing the field of control system integration by focusing on the overall management of a system integration business. To earn CSIA certification, companies must showcase a dedicated commitment to upholding the highest standards of quality, performance, and reliability. This entails adherence to the CSIA Best Practices and Benchmarks across ten critical areas, spanning both technical and operational realms.
CSIA Certification offers clients the assurance that the control system integrator is an established organization committed to cultivating mutually beneficial partnerships. CSIA Certified companies undergo a recertification audit every three years. This process promotes adherence to current business practices and ongoing business improvement. It is imperative for companies to complete the audit before the expiration date to maintain their certified status.
“Selecting a CSIA Certified system integrator represents a strategic decision to work with a vetted professionally managed control system integration company,” says Jose Rivera, CEO of CSIA. “The certification process requires a substantial investment to meet the Best Practice’s stringent performance criteria, demonstrating the company’s commitment to excellence. By choosing a SI that has embraced the CSIA’s Best Practices and successfully achieved Certification, you’re choosing a partner dedicated to implementing industry-leading standards in your facility.”
To achieve or renew CSIA certification, a thorough examination is conducted by a third-party auditor, with a primary objective to validate the comprehensive implementation of CSIA Best Practices and Benchmarks across ten critical areas. These encompass general management, human resources management, business development and sales management, financial management, project management, system development life cycle, quality management, technical management, and various other ancillary activities.
