Howard Garston Smith,  Software Quality Auditor    (GSAL Limited), England.

“This firm is now capable of delivering validatable software with an adequate level of innate structural integrity.  Its software engineering development process is based on a well-known life cycle with traceability under a quality system of adequate scope and depth, supervised by formal quality assurance.  The firm’s transformation over the past year is truly remarkable.”

“You have succeeded in transforming the software capability maturity level of your company out of all recognition, and managed to grow at the same time!  I can honestly say that no company I have worked with has achieved so much so quickly.” 

"This firm has adopted a consistent engineering approach to software development, complementing its processes in electrical and mechanical engineering, under a formal documented quality system of adequate scope and depth and under formal quality assurance supervision.  Such processes are capable of predictably delivering software that is validatable under current pharmaceutical best practices and international standards.  We have discovered no fundamental weaknesses or areas of non-compliances in their quality system or their software processes."

Colby Thompson,  Tomco Electric, Bend, OR

“We have found this organization a reliable resource for counsel and support with respect to control systems.  Furthermore, Powers of Automation has an extensive knowledge of the National Electric Code, which has proven effective in the coordination of electrical systems and control systems.” “We would recommend Powers of Automation on special controls projects.”

Greg Kisor,  Design Build Environmental, Inc., Anchorage, AK

“The remediation systems I operate in Alaska are routinely subject to harsh weather conditions. However, each and every control panel supplied by POA continues to operate year-round, trouble free, requiring little or no maintenance. These control panels have also proven very versatile, allowing easy modifications and additions as new equipment is added to the remediation systems. What I have found that sets the POA control panels apart from others is the ease of program changes. The PLC’s are user-friendly and allow changes to most common functions without a computer interface.”

Vince Foley, Bend Research Pharmaceutical Process Development, Bend, OR

"POA is very conscientious of our calibration and software needs and the need for accurate and complete documentation.  Their response to quality issues has always been met with the upmost concern to improve their systems.  They are great people to work with and are very personable.  I strongly recommend Powers of Automation, Inc. as a valuable member of any quality team."

Paul Stull III P.E.,  AMEC

"I have been using Powers of Automation for many years to provide me with custom control panels for environmental remediation and water resource systems. These panels typically come with rigorous specifications for atypical applications. We typically purchase approximately 5 to 8 panels per year and Powers of Automation has won 95% of our work over the past decade, due to superior work and competitive pricing. POA regularly suggests options to our panel specifications that are both more effective and economical. This service has enabled AMEC to modify and convert several panels easily for minimal cost when prior specifications would have required either a new panel or major retrofit and new UL inspection.

"AMEC has developed a good working relationship with POA and views them as an integral part of our overall team. When issues have arisen, POA has stood behind their work and provided exceptional support. I would recommend POA for control panel and sensor work and programming without reservation."

Roger W. Denison,  Deschutes Brewery, Inc.,  Bend, Oregon

To most of Central Oregon, and the Pacific Northwest Deschutes Brewery is a household name. Making some of the finest beers west of the Mississippi we have made our home in Bend and perused a life style many would be jealous of. In that pursuit it has brought us in contact with a variety of cultures, people and companies. We at Deschutes are proud of those relationships and support the success of our community. One of those relationships is with a local company, Powers of Automation.

Powers of Automation has proven them selves to be a great addition to our support team. POA has developed several control system for the brewery, written software, upgraded existing systems and worked with our own internal teams to resolve the challenges of modern business and manufacturing. I would say that POA has become an in-valuable service to Deschutes Brewery and one in which we rely on heavily. I would highly recommend Powers of Automation as a solution to your controls challenges and would expect you would receive nothing but the best services from them.
