One of the key selling points of SL Controls is that we are vendor neutral. This means we have the capability to work on any system or machine that a client operates. In addition, the solutions we provide to clients come from vendors best placed to help those clients achieve their objectives, i.e. we don’t push a particular vendor over another for any other reason than it is the right choice for the client.

As a result, our engineers get experience working on a wide range of technologies.
