PLC Control Solutions: Safe, Flexible, and Customized

PLC controls are industrial control systems that monitor and control various mechanical processes in real-time. They are highly reliable and programmable, essential for automating complex industrial operations. PLCs are indispensable in the food and beverage industry because they enhance automation, precision, flexibility, and compliance. This ultimately leads to higher productivity, consistent product quality, and operational efficiency. At Bassett, we work with our customers on everything from gas detection to ventilation to cold storage, freezing pizza, cranberries, and keeping cheese cool!

“Whether retrofitting an existing system or installing a new industrial refrigeration or cold storage facility, we offer customized control systems that are both flexible and cost-effective.
