In 1972, a lot of reasons prompted me to establish Control Systems. Since, there were many, it was difficult to pick one reason that was the most important. My love for electrical controls and making things operate automatically was of course a basic reason, along with providing a comfortable and better life for my family. Further, achieving the American Dream of having your own company would be a great achievement. Basically, I think I wanted to do something that would make a difference and improve both life and the environment- “Controls for the Environment”. To accomplish this, we put together a team, a family, that would work together to make things better in the world.
We are a family working together for CSI and for each other’s family. Together we made a resolution that we would not knowingly ship a product that was not perfect, as well as pledging to actively service our products in the field.
We use Harold Gash’s motto – “We give our customers more in value that we extract from them in cash value”.
