Texas Automation Systems has become a trusted automation partner by providing best-in-class automation and wireless system design, integration, programming and commissioning services.
The old adage “doing more with less” has never been truer than right now. Today companies are struggling to find and keep qualified employees as well as navigating the global supply chain crisis. While the Internet of Things (IoT) and its industrial counterpart Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), also known as Industry 4.0, have been steadily growing since their inceptions in 1999 and 2002, respectively, the current manpower and material shortages have created a perfect storm for IIoT to significantly accelerate its growth. Companies ranging from Oil & Gas, Chemicals, Water & Wastewater, Food & Beverage, Packing and Sorting to General Manufacturing are all now seeing the benefit IIoT can deliver in terms of reduced manpower requirements and improved asset utilization and protection.
Furthermore, and equally important, companies are seeing how IIoT is helping improve their Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) scores. The complexity comes in as each company requires a unique IIoT solution to match its environment and requirements.
It becomes a difficult choice to choose between the best solution providers. There are a handful of companies that provide the latest technology packed with industry-best standards and support.
Texas Automation Systems is one of the leading names in providing unmatched and highly reliable automation and IIoT solutions. They are one of the premier names, providing the latest tech that IIoT, or industry 4.0, has to offer. It’s their prowess, command of the technology and a spectacular arsenal of solutions that make them one of the most reliable and trusted Automation solution providers.
