Control Station receives the President's E Award for Exports

July 18, 2022

The U.S. Department of Commerce awarded Control Station the President’s E Award for Exports in recognition of the company’s success within the global industrial automation market. Control Station has licensed its process analytic and optimization solutions to more than half of the manufacturers listed in the Fortune 500 and has deployed its solutions to facilities located in more than 70 countries. Control Station designed its solution portfolio to be tailored to the needs of the international and multinational manufacturing community.

The E Award for Exports was created by Executive Order of the President in 1961 to recognize individuals and organizations that contribute to increasing U.S. exports. Candidates must document four years of successive export growth accompanied by a rising percentage of export sales relative to total sales. During the period of 2017 to 2020, Control Station’s exports grew at a cumulative average growth rate of 33.4%, and exports represented 37.7% of the company’s total sales during 2020. Control Station was among a group of 19 organizations recognized by Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo at a ceremony held in Washington, DC.

“Control Station exemplifies the innovative spirit that drives so many American companies to success within their respective fields and within the global marketplace,” said Melissa Grosso, director of the U.S. Commercial Service’s Connecticut office. “Their achievement of year-over-year growth in general and within key geographic markets points to Control Station’s strong leadership and its ambitious vision for global excellence. Control Station’s international achievements will continue to grow the company and will have a positive impact on Connecticut’s economic development.”

Control Station President Dennis Nash added: “More and more manufacturers are turning to Control Station as they embrace analytics and as they seek intuitive tools for optimizing throughput and efficiency. Through persistent innovation and end-user collaboration, we’re solving complex industrial control challenges and gaining ground in a highly competitive global market.”

Control Station has invested resources in developing capabilities that satisfy the needs of international and multinational manufacturers. The company employs multilingual staff, and its products have been translated to support multiple languages. Additionally, the PlantESP and Loop-Pro product suites are designed to automatically determine how to perform calculations and/or present information based on a given customer’s computer settings.  

PlantESP has been licensed to manufacturers located on six continents, including a combination of individual site and centralized enterprise-wide deployments. Similarly, the Loop-Pro suite has been deployed to global manufacturers using a variety of site-specific and enterprise-wide licensing options. 

During the past several years, Control Station has focused on excellence in exporting. In 2018, the company was recognized by the U.S. Small Business Administration as Exporter of the Year for the State of Connecticut. It was subsequently honored by the National Association of Small Business International Trade Educators with the 2020 Outstanding Exporter Award.
