I most highly recommend Ric Christiansen from HILLSIDE CONTROL SYSTEMS for industrial automation services. I’ve had the distinct pleasure of working with Ric at HCS for a couple of years on numerous automation project assignments across the United States. The quality of his work is exceptional. Automation sequences are clearly/concisely coded and proven to run smoothly through the controls narrative. Additionally, the meticulous tracking and documentation of changes are processed efficiently, ensuring that reference files and documentation reflect ‘as-built’ conditions readily.

Ric is a consummate professional, extremely courteous and embraces the concept of teamwork His vast experience with electrical control systems is a great benefit as he can recommend effective solutions to sequences we are seeking to automate. A larger part of his success is stemmed from his relentless work ethic, he understands the water treatment industry and is proficient with the various processes, resulting in impressive productivity. Furthermore. I sincerely appreciate Ric’s willingness to take-on fast-track special request assignments that fall outside of normal business hours as required in getting the job completed on time or even ahead of schedule.

I hope to continue to work with Ric Christiansen and HCS on future projects. He continues to exceed all my expectations and it is an absolute pleasure working with him.

“It was by chance that I found out about Hillside Controls.  Ric actually contacted me about his new company and by chance I was looking for someone to diagnose and program some PLC panels for me.  Being that The Township of Pelee is a remote location it can be hard to find contractors willing to work through the logistics of working here.  Ric went above and beyond with his performance and impressed me with the knowledge of different control systems and hardware.  I will be keeping Hillside Controls on my short list of contractors I invite to quote and tender on future projects.”

His work quality and ethics are exemplary and consistent. Ric has a thorough Electronic and Electrical skill set and cognizance of integrated systems.  I am confident and secure in knowing Mr. Christiansen is addressing a system start up or troubleshooting issues within my system controls.”
