Celebrating 20 years of InControl


This month marks an impressive milestone for InControl, as they celebrate on the past 20 years of providing turnkey solutions for process control, automation and information systems.

InControl Systems Limited was founded by long-term friends Patrick Nash and Jan Hemper on the 1st of November 1999, drawing on over 25 years’ proven experience in manufacturing and process industries. The company has developed into a team of talented and experienced professionals delivering innovative and effective real-time control, monitoring, visualisation and analysis solutions to the manufacturing and process industries.

“The business has changed phenomenally over the last two decades. Twenty years ago we were a couple of engineers, travelling the world, providing control system consultancy in the oil and gas arena; today we have grown to an extremely professional project based company, providing services across all facets of the process control, automation and information systems space in most industry sectors.” – Jan Hemper, Technical Director of InControl Systems Limited

InControl Systems’ business was established around the world through highly valued technological partnering with machinery and plant OEMs. With the inevitable convergence of industrial automation and information technology, Pat and Jan have embraced the challenges and opportunities of connecting real-time, event-driven plant floor systems with transactional business data and enterprise resource planning systems. Recognising the emerging opportunity in IoT, Pat and Jan joined forces with Business Analyst, Jon Hill and InVMA Limited was born.

InVMA was created to help forward thinking companies and organisations translate their thoughts and ideas for connected IoT and M2M applications into effective, fully-developed, end-to-end solutions – no matter what the chosen procurement path is.

“The inevitable convergence of industrial automation and information technology drove us to create InVMA, a company focused on delivering business value, using emerging technology, in the smart connected equipment and Industry 4.0 space. The combination of InControl Systems and InVMA places us in the unique position, of having both the knowledge and skill set to deliver solutions that generate value across all levels of the organisation.” – Patrick Nash, Managing Director of InControl Systems Limited and InVMA Limited

The company’s unique infrastructure allows them to work fluently with sister company InVMA, to provide the best service combined. Being situated at the heart of England is highly beneficial for both InControl and InVMA and we intend on staying here in order to reach as many clients and customers as easy as possible.

“There is a great working environment and knowledgeable team within InControl that are willing to rise to the challenge, and strive for improvement.” – Danny Millward, Applications Engineer at InControl Systems, discussing his experience working at InControl

“We are often asked about our plans for the company going forward and the answer is… more of the same: InControl Systems aim is to maintain the same level of knowledge, professionalism, customer service and transparency that have allowed us to grow our customer base and revenues to this point. We will always maintain our integrity and core values as we strongly believe that this is what sets us apart from the competition.” – Jan Hemper

“We would like to thank our clients, customers, partners and supporters for the 20 years of success, and we look forward to celebrating another 20 years!” – Patrick Nash
