Bringing Your Processes Under Control

About Us

Panatrol is a controls integrator in the Chicago area. Established in 1978 Panatrol has grown from servicing local customers to designing, building, programming, and shipping systems throughout North America. Panatrol’s staff has experience across several industries and many control platforms.

Our Mission

From Panatrol’s experience with the Power Industry, Movable Bridges, Large Process Plants, and Small Automation projects Panatrol knows that one size does not fit all. We understand the need to build a comfort level with customers. Many of our relationships have started with small panel work that then grows into full design and build projects. Panatrol is always looking into ways to make systems more cost effective and maintainable. This may start with overall system design to adding in the ability for remote access for troubleshooting and system updates. Panatrol has recently initiated standardization projects for customers to speed project turn around, lower control system cost, and assist these customers with their marketing efforts.

Automation and Controls

Panatrol can take a system that is strictly specified or a design concept that starts on the back of an envelope and turn it into a system that meets or exceeds expectations. Panatrol does this with engineers that understand that the customer’s control needs are based on the process, the required level of automation, and the safety needs of the end user. Panatrol’s shop personnel have built systems for many needs and based on many differing specifications and know all the right questions to ask.
