About Us

We are specialists in automation & control technologies, communications and power distribution. We provide the industrial, petrochemical, municipal, commercial building and manufacturing communities with a single source solution for complete engineering and technical support services.

The major distinction that separates our firm from others is the combination of specialized engineering education and years of “hands on" field expertise.

We provide a comprehensive package of engineering and technical services that deliver innovative solutions for unique and difficult problems. We deliver real value, expertise and continuity to our customer’s project or operation.

Our “on time" and “on budget" installations coupled with our full range of engineering and technical problem solving skills, have provided a proven track record of achievement.

Our Vision

Since the founding of our company, our vision has been to form long lasting ongoing business relationships with customers by providing the highest degree of value and professionalism in the services we offer. Our vision is to provide our client a single source for specialized engineering and technical services that deliver innovative solutions, real value, expertise and continuity to their project or operation.

Commitment to our Customers

We are automation and control systems specialists with heavy “hands on" experience. Our emphasis is providing the customer with a single source for engineering and services related to automation, control systems, and communication technologies. Our commitment to the customer has been the cornerstone of our success. We consistently provide a broad range of clients with reliable services designed to bring in projects on time and on budget. We supply on-going technical support and instrumentation components and equipment required to maintain customer’s facilities in the day to day operation. Our commitment means that we provide 24 hour emergency response service 365 days a year.

Periodically, we offer a free technical training workshop to our customers. The workshops are held at our office in Benicia, California. We provide one or more technical personnel from an equipment manufacturer and an environment for a concentrated education on a particular product or system. We have found that the workshops are well received, and provide a forum for both social and technical exchange.

As a further commitment to our customers, we offer 24 hour “Emergency Response"services 365 days a year, and routinely travel throughout the continental US, Alaska and Hawaii. Our field engineering experience and technical trouble-shooting expertise saves our customers valuable time and money by evaluating and eliminating improperly designed or tuned control schemes which can be the primary source of nuisance interruptions in the production or facility process operation.

Expert and Efficient Staff:

Our firm’s seasoned engineers provide services ranging from phase one feasibility studies and conceptual design, to complete “State of the Art" complex systems using “Fail-Safe" control schemes and techniques. Our company’s design philosophy is based on a simple principle: “Begin with the end in mind". The result is designs with an open architecture for both hardware and software. Our designers create drawings in AutoCAD software, produced in layers in both color and the standard black and white. This approach provides an extremely reliable system, with detailed documents and drawings that make it easy for the technician to read, resulting in less down time and greater profitability. Our designs furnish the customer’s engineer with a platform for expansion and migration, and the ability to reduce future costs for engineering and system modifications.

Frontline’s project managers provide the control and coordination over project schedules, budgets and safety with the ability to head off potential problems before they occur. We are a licensed C10 – Electrical Contractor providing complete “Turn Key" design build installation services for both electrical power and automation control systems. We provide third party inspections using NEC, ISA, ANSI, API and IEEE standards as well as those of our customers.

As system integrators, we use Wonderware, Intellution, Visual Basic and other prominent makers of development software for SCADA or MMI packages. We incorporate a trueInformation Systems approach with open architecture for growth, tight control of site and system-wide management, alarming, trending, energy management, and data manipulation through MS ACCESS. Combining software and cutting edge, off the shelf hardware packages, i.e. Allen Bradley, Siemens, Square D, GE Fanuc Program Logic Controllers and Distributive Control Systems is our standard for maximizing value for the customer.
