Engineering innovative state-of-the-art solutions for complex control applications, the company credits its success to the talent and dedication of its Texas leader, business development manager, engineering team and the support and loyalty of countless partners and customers.
AUBURN HILLS, MI – March 31, 2014 – Patti Engineering, Inc., a leader in control systems integration, today announced that it will celebrate four years of business in Texas and its new office location with a grand opening party on April 4. This news comes on the heels of its strategic alliance announcement with Hagbros Precision, LLC, which will provide more robust manufacturing solutions to customers in Texas.
Founder and former President of Patti Engineering, Executive Vice President Sam Hoff spearheaded its expansion to Texas in the spring of 2010, with support from an exceptional engineering team. Hoff admits the success the company has achieved in only four years in the Texas region has surpassed expectations twofold, as evidenced by ongoing hiring efforts to bolster its already stellar engineering team and increasing demand for services.
The company cites its partnerships with Siemens, Mitsubishi, Phoenix Contact, Matrox, Kawasaki Robotics and Indusoft as critical components to its success in the Texas region. Siemens Austin/San Antonio, Texas, Senior Account Manager, Rich Jacobson commented, “Patti Engineering brings a level of expertise on Siemens based solutions that far exceeds almost any other systems integrator. I don’t hesitate to partner with them on the most challenging applications, knowing our customers are in good hands.”
The company has formed great working relationships with several Texas automation suppliers. AWC is a leading automation supplier and distributor of Siemens automation products. AWC and Patti Engineering have work together on many projects, including assisting national oil well equipment manufacturers in the design, development and implementation of complex automated drilling technology.
According to Director of Drilling Support Services at AWC, Brad Rosenhagen, “AWC focuses on developing strategic partnerships with our customers, technology partners and trusted solution partners so that we all can win together on projects and product development. Patti Engineering exemplifies the type of partner to work with. Their professionalism and thoroughness from the start of a project to its completion, keeps us coming back for more. With their very capable and Siemens knowledgeable engineering staff, Patti Engineering provides the skills and the quick responsiveness our customers require. Whether we are working with them on a small prototype or a larger project, we know that our customer, technology partner, AWC and Patti Engineering will all win together.”
Patti Engineering’s Vice President of Texas Operations, Steve Palmgren, has led the expansion efforts for the past four years. Palmgren is a licensed Texas Professional Engineer (P.E.); his experience as the lead engineer on many of Patti Engineering’s major projects has proved invaluable to the company’s success. In addition to hiring top notch engineering talent, in December of 2012, Patti Engineering brought on board a Business Development Manager, Wayne Hachenberg. In 2013, Senior Electrical Engineer, Nick Hitchcock, added to the team’s success by earning his Texas P.E. license.
“We are excited to host our employees, partners and customers at our new office location in Austin,” said Palmgren. “We are celebrating the grand opening of this first brick and mortar office on April 4th, which is almost 4 years to the date from my move to Texas from Michigan to start Patti Engineering Austin. The vision of opening a remote office has come true for Patti Engineering. We have formed strong partnerships in Austin with our partners and their distributers, many of whom were skeptical of the markets need for another system integrator at first. We have also formed strategic alliances that have been key in much of the growth and opportunity.”
