Auburn Hills, MI – June 26, 2012 – Patti Engineering, Inc., a leader in control system integration, celebrates the second year anniversary for its Austin, Texas branch today. Founded on June 3, 1991, Patti Engineering sought diversification and growth opportunities during the severe economic downturn which hit the Michigan area especially hard. Sam Hoff, founder and president of Patti Engineering, identified the energy and industrial rich Texas market as an ideal opportunity.
In a market with a strong presence of existing control system integrators, some had doubts the Auburn Hills, Michigan based company would be successful in carving their own niche. Austin/San Antonio Siemens Senior Account Manager,Rich Jacobson was among the skeptical.
“I just did not see the need for another integrator in our market, but their engineers came in and wowed us with their technical knowledge and capabilities with Siemens automation products,” commented Jacobson. “The difference was night and day. Patti Engineering is the best Siemens Automation Solution Partner that I have ever had the pleasure to work with. They quickly became our top go to resource.”
Steve Palmgren, Patti Engineering senior electrical engineer and branch manager is leading Texas expansion efforts. Steve’s experience as the lead engineer on many of Patti Engineering’s major projects for the past tenyears has proved invaluable. The company has been adding to their Texas engineering staff and will soon be hiring a local business development manager.
“Celebrating our 2nd year anniversary is a great honor. I attribute our ability to successfully enter into the Texas market with strong growth results to our most valuable assets: our talented and dedicated engineers whose performance has quickly established Patti Engineering as a trusted and valuable resource to our new clients,” said Hoff. “In addition, we want to thank all of our business partners and new clients for helping us achieve this milestone.”
