Drawing on over 25 years' proven experience in manufacturing and process industries Patrick Nash and Jan Hemper set up InControl Systems. The company developed into a team of talented and experienced professionals delivering innovative and effective real-time control, monitoring, visualisation and analysis solutions to manufacturing and process industries.
InControl Systmes' business is established around the world through highly valued technological partnering with machinery and plant OEMs.
With the inevitable convergence of industrial automation and information technology, Pat and Jan have embraced the challenges and opportunities of connecting real-time, event-driven plant floor systems with transactional business data and enterprise resource planning systems.
