Who relies on Think-PLC as their control panel shop?

“You guys have this insight that a typical panel building shop that’s just building panels and going off of a set of prints, for the most part, they don’t have design capabilities and the product knowledge. But you guys have that and it’s a big strength that we look for in a cabinet shop because it gives us the ability to pivot and really hone in and make an electrical cabinet function as best as it can before it’s actually mounted up to a machine.”

Conan Stoehr, Siemens
“But for the most part, if it’s a random project out there I’m calling Bobby… I know that if Bobby works on the project, it’s going to be done and it will be done right.”
