This month, Automation World magazine's "Leadership in Automation 2013" program recognized automation companies that represent a wide variety of technologies, software and products used in the manufacturing industry.
Survey results showed readers chose communication, monitoring and controls product supplier, Red Lion Controls, for the third consecutive year as a "First Team Supplier" in the Data Acquisition Hardware and Networking Components — Ethernet categories. Red Lion also received an award in the HMI Hardware category.
"Chosen by their customers, the First Team Supplier honorees offer outstanding examples of innovation and service," said Jim Chrzan, publisher of Automation World. "Congratulations to Red Lion and all First Team Suppliers, and a special thanks to all the end users who lent their voice to this program throughout the year."
Red Lion released a number of innovative automation and networking products in 2013, including the NT24k modular switch series, Graphite HMI series and RAM 6021 routers.
"We are honored to be recognized by automation professionals for the third year in a row," said Mike Granby, president of Red Lion Controls. "These awards underscore how the successful integration of Red Lion, Sixnet and N-Tron into a single, unified company further enables us to innovate and provide high-quality products that meet end user requirements."
