DST Controls was founded in 1975 in Benicia, CA. to provide turnkey industrial data services for all industrial plants. We have performed our services for Fortune 100 clients on five continents.
We have worked with nearly all PI products since becoming a partner in 2008.
Our customers say that we offer more than technical expertise – we understand business needs, produce quality results and are flexible. One customer presented our work five times at the 2014 OSIsoft user conference. OSIsoft has accepted us as speakers at nearly all UC conferences since 2009.
Creating the spec is as important as implementing the spec
Customers want new situations. DST Engineers listen to a customer’s objective, observe their existing process and then write a spec that produces a new situation. DST staff has performed in roles of program manager, enterprise architect and solution architect in addition to traditional software and hardware development roles. DST staff becomes a full member of our customer’s project team.
Fulfill work orders quickly and efficiently
A good system integrator can and fulfill work requests from users quickly and efficiently. DST engineers work daily on many IT systems – Data historians, Enterprise systems, SCADA systems – and can quickly step in and fulfill routine work requests and trouble tickets with only a phone call to our headquarters.
Normally, a teacher trains the student in the techniques of a product without concern for the situation or current goals of the student. Our training is strategic – during our training, we take a real plant problem and solve it together during the class. At the end of the class, the student has produced something useful and has a team of people – us – who know his situation and can help him via a phone call.
