In much of the desert southwest, the name National Automation Services Inc. is rapidly becoming synonymous with control systems integration, though the company has expanded into a number of different areas. The diversity of their projects gives an idea of their ability to solve almost any kind of processing and systems control challenge, but it also indicates the level of trust major clients routinely place in that ability.

NAS has now been asked by Southwest to support all of their operations throughout the western U.S., including California, Arizona, Utah, Oregon, Washington, New Mexico, and Texas.
• Honeywell Security Division – Alaska Pipeline – NAS manufactured four different types of specialty panels used for critical station security on the Alaska pipeline.
• Western Mining & Minerals – NAS supports all automation and controls for their St. George operations, including emergency and scheduled services of PLC, SCADA, and instrumentation at the plant.
• City of Mesa, Arizona – Configuration, programming, and integration for water, wastewater, gas and electric utilities divisions.
