Services


Service begins with People
Solutions 4 Automation was built by quality people who have a desire to do the best work for a fair price, and produce a product that will truly be a Solution for the customers that they serve.



Contract Design Service
In addition we utilize contract labor to fill in a gaps in Machine Wire, Panel Wire, and Hydraulic or Pneumatic piping in order to complete projects in a timely manner. All contract labor is supervised directly by S4A leaders to ensure that our high standards of quality are met.

If you require assistance in overflow engineering, or require Mechanical or Controls Engineering, with a first class Project Management team, we would be happy to help. We would ensure your project comes in on time, to budget, and enable the highest probability of a successful start up.

Service Work
If you have continuous improvement projects, product additions to existing equipment, software updates, cycle time or up time improvements, we would appreciate the opportunity to supply a proposal for a quality technician or engineer for your requirements.
