Who We Are
NovaTech designs and manufactures best-in-class automation products and services that make electric utilities and process industries more reliable, efficient, and secure. We provide engineers with tools that simplify the complex and extend their capabilities while minimizing risk, catalyzing the evolution of more sustainable energy and process manufacturing infrastructure while providing our customers with competitive advantage.
As a result of our thirty years of effort, many of the goods and services that we all depend on – from the power in our outlets to the fuel in our vehicles, the medicines in our cabinets and the food on our tables – have been provided with higher reliability, at lower cost and with decreased environmental impact. As global population expands and energy and materials demands increase, the technologies and services we develop and deploy will only expand in scope and importance. NovaTech’s products and people help make power grids more accepting of innovative and renewable energy sources, and process plants more efficient in their use of the raw materials. Beyond providing our customers with the tools to succeed, there is a larger guiding principle to our organization: We contribute to the engineering of a more sustainable world.
