National Automation Services Inc. is building a nationwide reputation in the field of controls and automation, with systems that pertain to almost every industry in the country. The company develops and implements sophisticated automated solutions for an almost endless array of applications, including water and wastewater treatment, mining, pharmaceutical production, electric utilities, bottling, baggage handling, and semiconductor processing. Their ability to efficiently integrate the most advanced technologies in manufacturing, motion control, HVAC, instrumentation, radio telemetry, and virtually anything that involves sensing and control, explains why some of the biggest companies in America continually turn to them.

A quick look at even a few of their customers gives an idea of the breadth of experience.

• Southwest Airlines – NAS is responsible for maintaining baggage handling for Las Vegas McCarran International Airport, involving extensive use of PLC Controllers, and the integration of numerous monitoring and security systems. 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.
• San Carlos Irrigation – Radio Telemetry Survey – NAS designed and implemented a spread spectrum radio network for the San Carlos Irrigation District in Arizona.
• TRW Discrete Parts Manufacturing – NAS developed a semi-automated air bag production line for TRW, involving RF tags and readers, bar code scanners, operator and communications interfaces.
• Watson Pharmaceuticals – NAS was responsible for configuration of Fix 32 SCADA redundancy as well as pure water panel fabrication.

In addition, NAS has provided process control solutions for companies like Motorola Semiconductor, Coca-Cola Bottling, Chevron, Air Science Engineering, Phelps Dodge, and a wide range of towns and cities in the Southwest.

Now the company has begun implementing a strategy of nationwide expansion, acquiring the best regional players under their national umbrella. It shows why, when it comes to control, perhaps the company’s greatest strength is the control it seems to have over its own future.
