Controlled Automation


Controlled Automation, based in Bauxite, Ark., has created high-performance machines that offer labor and material cost savings to any size structural steel fabricator company.

The company was established in 1986 and began by retrofitting or adding components to machines that were not included when they were first manufactured, Vice President of Sales Kris Sikes says. “We got a good idea of what people were doing wrong and right and developed our own machinery from that,” he adds.
