YORK, Pa., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Lion Controls, the global experts in communication, monitoring and control for industrial automation and networking, today announced that the company has been named a "First Team Supplier" by the readers of Automation World magazine, the leading business magazine serving automation professionals. For the second year in a row, Red Lion received accolades in the Data Acquisition Hardware and Networking Components - Ethernet categories for its automation and N-Tron series switches.
The Automation World "Leadership in Automation 2012" program recognizes companies that represent a wide variety of automation technologies, software and products in use by today's manufacturing professionals across the discrete, batch and continuous process manufacturing industries. This year's award recipients were selected based on a combination of online reader participation via AutomationWorld.com and a year-long email poll with unaided recall.
"Chosen by their customers, the First Team Honorees offer outstanding examples of innovation and service," said Jim Chrzan, publisher of Automation World. "Congratulations to them, and thank you to all the end users who lent their voice to this program throughout the year."
Since first opening its doors over 40 years ago, Red Lion has provided industrial automation and control products such as data acquisition devices, panel meters, PID controllers, signal conditioners, HMI operator panels, large LED and industrial TV displays. Through the acquisitions of N-Tron and Sixnet, the company has expanded its product portfolio to also include industrial Ethernet switches, RTUs and cellular devices.
"We are proud to have grown over the years, expanding both our company size and the range of products and solutions that we offer. But what is more fundamental is the high standard of quality that we have maintained," said Mike Granby, president of Red Lion Controls. "Being recognized as a 'First Team Supplier' by an industry-leading publication like Automation World demonstrates how this is appreciated by our customers and partners, which makes these awards all the more gratifying."
All First Team honorees will be recognized in the print edition of Automation World's January 2013 issue, which will be available at www.automationworld.com. For additional information, please visit www.redlion.net/together.
