EDGEMONT, PA – On May 25th, 2016 Eastern Controls, Inc. (ECI) held its first Process Solutions Summit. The event featured twenty-five educational sessions provided by industry leaders for over 180 customers across the Mid-Atlantic region. A one-day event entitled the Process Solutions Summit (PSS) was created to celebrate, educate, and introduce the arrival of the Process Training Unit (PTU™) to Eastern Controls. The PTU™ features Endress+Hauser instruments and the Rockwell Automation PlantPAx process automation system designed for the purpose of educating field technicians, engineers, customers, and sales personnel.

The PSS began with opening remarks from ECI’s President, Cliff McLaughlin Jr., which were followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony featuring special guest Pennsylvania Senator Tom Killion. The opening ceremony was followed by complimentary educational sessions, tours of the facility, hands-on training, a walk-through of the PTU™, a vendor trade show and plenty of giveaways and prizes! A fantastic networking opportunity was provided to customers during the
breakfast, lunch, and dinner sessions. An informative keynote address featuring Cliff McLaughlin Jr. and Sunoco Logistics Director of Operations Edward Human was enjoyed by all. The keynote discussion provided information about the growth in SXL and what was built and why. Details about the abilities of the new NGL systems, equipment, and instrumentation were also provided.
In September 2015, Eastern Controls was appointed the exclusive representative and authorized service provider for Endress+Hauser. Endress+Hauser is one of the world’s largest process measurement manufacturers and offers a wide range of level, flow, pressure, and temperature measurement solutions as well as liquid analysis and measured value recording equipment.
In addition, Eastern Controls, Inc. also became the new home of Endress+Hauser’s Philadelphia-Area Process Training Unit (PTU™). The PTU™ includes numerous fully functional flow, pressure, temperature, level and analysis instruments throughout 5,000 square feet of classroom and hands-on training space. The unit also includes various other manufacturers ECI represents, such as Mine Safety Appliance (MSA), Masoneilan, O’Brien, Turck, and PBM.
Over the past few months, the service center at Eastern Controls’ headquarters located in Edgemont underwent a “facelift.” Computer systems have been updated, work areas have been redesigned, and most importantly, the construction of the Process Training Unit (PTU) received from Endress+Hauser was completed.
