Amongst some intense competition, ACI prevailed winning the grand prize for the 2014 Wisconsin Family Business Award for a medium-sized company. “To be nominated alongside some of Wisconsin’s most historic and successful family-owned businesses was truly humbling, and served as a manifestation of the culture we have worked so hard to create.” Watch the Inside ACI Video below!
Automation Components, Inc. has been a manufacturer of performance sensors for the HVAC Industry since 1991. Our company’s motto is “Engineering a Better Sensor Solution” and this concept is embraced throughout our entire organization. ACI’s core products provide application solutions for: Temperature, Relative Humidity, Pressure, Current, Gas, Interface Devices, and Wireless. ACI has received multiple accolades for our achievements in manufacturing and philanthropy. Most notably, we have been named Wisconsin Manufacturer of the Year twice, and have been the recipients of prestigious awards from ControlTrends and Corporate Report of Wisconsin.
ACI is nominated for the 2013 ControlTrends Awards for Best Periphery Product from a Small Manufacturer, but ACI is likely to outgrow that category and soon, because ACI is a thriving entity on the move — setting new standards in the temperature, humidity, pressure, gas sensor, interface devices, wireless sensor, and building automation accessories markets. ACI’s two key acquisitions: Advanced Control Technologies’ (ACT’s) Interface Control Components line and Trs Systems Wireless Sensors and Controls give ACI complete application solutions and a much greater reach into every building space.
Few manufacturing companies are able to balance an aggressive competitive spirit with a palpable corporate heartbeat. ACI is not just an industry leader, but a committed community member able to sustain an active and viable community commitment, which is not an easy task to perform. ACI does it all so well and they make it seem easy. Take a look at ACI’s intuitive website, you’ll be very impressed.
ACI works hard to make to make your job easier, and is quite professional and friendly while they’re doing it!
