Applewood Controls has provided me with reliable PLC systems and support for more than 15 Years at three different food manufacturing companies. Applewood possesses the ability to design and build complete control systems for processing. Applewood also has multiple resources available who can provide knowledgeable emergency service related to production control systems and automation. I would recommend Applewood to any manufacturing business that is in need of automation controls coupled with reliable service and support.

My name is Gerald Fortier. I am the General Manager and co-owner of Functional Coatings Inc.

We have been working with Dependable Controls Services and Applewood Controls Inc. for the past five years. Over that time we have done many projects from small to large.

The largest project was building and installing a new state of the art coating line. The project was done in three steps. First step was to bring 2000 amps of new power from the street, this meant excavating the driveway, running 350 feet of underground pipe, a new transformer, new switch gear and feeds to the line.

Applewood built all the controls and drive panels for the coater as well as taking care of the software and integration of the line. Next step was a new mixer and new holding tank to feed the adhesive to the line. The last step was installing a new accumulator with auto logging at the end of the line. DCS handled all the electrical and Applewood took care of all the control systems and panel builds for the last two steps. In all the project spanned over two and a half years. Both DCS and Applewood did an outstanding job handling all aspects of the project from design, electrical, controls, hardware and software.

Dependable has taken care of all our service for over five years. We are a 24 hour operation and keeping downtime low is critical. Again DCS and Applewood have done a great job of servicing our business and supporting our company’s growth over the last five plus years.

I would highly recommend both DCS and Applewood for any, electrical work, control systems and automation engineering

Thank you,

I have been using Applewood Controls for control panel fabrication for over 10 years. They have provided advice and expertise in securing UL-508A listing for our panels, and have gone the extra mile in all cases to provide control panels on time and within budget. Their staff is extremely knowledgeable and the service is unmatched. When we have a system that needs to be built in a minimum amount of time with a great deal of quality, or any system for that matter, I know I can count on Applewood controls to provide the very best.
