Mission Builder Award

CLEVELAND, OH, MAY 1, 2017— Control Electric Company, an industrial automation integration firm based in Columbia Station, OH was one of five Northeast Ohio companies receiving the “Mission Builder Award” presented by WIRE-Net.

The honor recognizes companies committed to growing their businesses locally and have invested in their surrounding communities. The award was given during WIRE-Net’s 2017 Annual Meeting held at Renaissance Cleveland Hotel Grand Ballroom on April 25. WIRE-Net is a non-profit economic development organization dedicated to improving the community through nurturing manufacturing and the jobs and prosperity that come with it.

Founded in 1961, Control Electric Company offers a full range of industrial automation services including industrial controls, robotics, custom industrial machinery, and engineering services. Over the past decade it has experienced steady growth.

“This growth has led to the development of a new business unit in 2013, Omni Automation, which provides robotic and custom machinery solutions. During 2015 we moved into our new state-of-the-art facility which manufactures advanced automation systems,” says Michael Vogt, President of Control Electric Company.

Control Electric Company has a highly-skilled workforce that includes electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, project managers, software engineers, control panel builders, mechanics, and installers. “Our team works together with clients to understand their automation needs and then tailor high quality, cost-effective custom solutions using the latest products and services,” says Vogt.

Control Electric Company earned the Mission Builder Award by giving back to the community. “As part of our commitment to local manufactures we continue to offer free automation audits to companies in northern Ohio. Beginning in the third quarter of 2017 our Columbia Station facility will offer free lunch-and-learn automation updates to local businesses to help them navigate the rapidly changing world of automation. We also recently partnered with the Medina County Career Center to employee and train high school seniors in the software engineering and precision machining technology career majors,” says Vogt.
