2012 Automated Integrator Guide cover.At www.controleng.com/integrators, the Automation Integrator Guide, a global online guide to automation system integrator talent, has more than 2300 automation system integrator listings and profiles, with information about their size by annual revenue, industries served, geographic areas served (with a record number of firms offering international service, more than 535), engineering specialties, product experience, corporate affiliations, and professional affiliations. While many system integrator expanded listings and profiles, with related expertise, appear here in print, all the listings appear online. Use the multiparameter search engine to quickly progress from “searching” to “finding” the right set of talent for the next automation project.

At www.controleng.com/SIY, the Control Engineering System Integrator Hall of Fame links to prior winners of the System Integrator of the Year Awards, including expanded information about the winners highlighted in this issue. Congratulations to Mangan Inc., Superior Controls, and Matrix Technologies, the 2012 winners. Thanks also to all the 2012 finalists for entering.

Also see article and video clips that highlight practical automation system integration advice from the winners.
