Staying Power: Schultheis Automation Control Systems Celebrates 25 Years

Article Published: October 20, 2014

In the fast-paced tech world, 25 years is an eternity. 

Few tech companies have the staying power to be in business for a quarter of a century. Schultheis Automation Control Systems has gone the distance, and diversification has been key to its longevity. 

“Our mission at Schultheis Automation Control Systems is to provide clients with manufactured state-of-the-art control system solutions, from conceptual planning through completion,” said CEO Suzanne Schultheis. “As any small business, we face many challenges and struggles on a daily basis. It’s overcoming those challenges and moving forward for continued business that keeps us going.”

Since operation began in 1989, the company remains family-owned and operated in western Pennsylvania. The company focuses primarily on the industrial automation, electrical engineering, systems integration, natural gas and information technology industries.

The company’s services are a veritable menu that includes: control engineering, Auto-CAD services, control panel design and construction, PLC programming, cathodic protection, maintenance services and instrumentation.

Over the years, Schultheis also built its business on numerous integrator programs, including Rockwell Automation, GE PLC, Schneider, WAGO, Mitsubishi, Baldor Motion Control and Wonderware. In 2006, amongst the rising need in the fast-growing natural gas market in the region, Schultheis Automation expanded its engineering services to meet the demands of the oil and gas industry.

To enhance diversification of the already existing industrial market, as well as facilitating other industries, Schultheis Automation launched an IT Division in 2008 that focuses primarily on computer service, repair, networks and servers for residential, commercial and industrial clients.

“Over the years Schultheis Automation has earned the reputation over a multi-county/statewide area of providing safe, quality products accompanied by prompt service in meeting all the customer’s needs,” said Schultheis. “The company strives to provide top-level customer service and expertise while still maintaining the dynamic of family ownership in a local community.”
