What’s the business all about?

Riverside Automation is a well-regarded professional integrator and supplier of industrial control systems such as Programmable Logic Controllers, SCADA & HMI graphical user interfaces, electrical panels, IT and networks. Established over 25 years ago, the company’s offices are in Nether Edge, Sheffield. They are an IIP (Investors in People) accredited business, so they have lots of great people practices in place to help grow and develop their staff. Their team vary in age and experience, from those who have completed a few years in the industry, to those nearing retirement. This leads to a very healthy balance, which is rarely achieved in a high technology industrial company.
