)-- Control Station launched a global Value Added Reseller (VAR) program today with the signing of Osprey Engineering. Osprey and other resellers will provide worldwide distribution of Control Station’s award-winning LOOP-PRO™ technologies. LOOP-PRO is a PID diagnostic and optimization software that has been widely acclaimed for both innovation and ease-of-use.
Osprey Engineering is the first engineering services firm to officially join Control Station’s VAR Program. Based in Malaysia, Osprey Engineering has extensive experience in the design, implementation, and support of complex automation systems. The company’s services target inefficiencies in production processes such as excessive energy consumption, poor quality, and insufficient throughput. In addition to engineering support services, Osprey distributes an array of best-in-class technologies and offers a suite of simulation-based skills development services. The company actively supports leading manufacturers throughout Southeast Asia, including BASF Petronas, Eastman, FPG Oleochemicals, and Proctor & Gamble.
“LOOP-PRO equips our customers with an easy-to-use toolkit for improving the performance of their business-critical production processes,” commented Barry Martin, General Manager of Osprey Engineering. “With minimal training, customers can apply LOOP-PRO’s recipe-based tuning procedure to make informed decisions and to customize tuning parameters that meet their unique control objective. Our field service engineers have used LOOP-PRO with great success and have tangibly improved control at multiple customer sites.”
Control Station’s VAR Program was launched in response to growing international demand for the LOOP-PRO Product Suite. The program will support a select group of engineering services firms that possess expertise in process control and that demonstrate strong customer support. Program participants will receive lead generation and sales assistance, technical sales training and support, among other benefits.
“We are thrilled to work with leading engineering services firms such as Osprey Engineering,” stated Dennis Nash, President of Control Station. “With the right combination of people, processes, and tools, our partnership can significantly increase the profitability of manufacturers across the process industries. Osprey shares both this viewpoint and Control Station’s commitment to maintaining customer satisfaction.”
LOOP-PRO has been recognized for innovation and ease-of-use by multiple third-party organizations. End-users from the process control community selected LOOP-PRO for Control Engineering Magazine’s Engineer’s Choice Award. More recently, a panel of industry experts designated LOOP-PRO as the recipient of Chemical Processing Magazine’s 2007 Vaaler Award, recognizing the technology as a major contribution toward more effective and efficient plant operation.
