TSP Announces Strategic Partnership with Global Process Automation

(DALLAS) May 10, 2017TSP (Technology Service Professionals), a privately held IT services company, announced the creation of a strategic partnership with Global Process Automation (GPA), an industry leader in distributed control systems, PLC applications, information technology, and cyber security.

“We are proud to be the largest third-party Quality Control Systems (QCS) service provider in North America,” said Frank Gonzalez, co-founder and CEO of TSP. “To think that our industrial automation group has grown from zero to over 100 dedicated employees in a few short years is simply incredible. This partnership with GPA will undoubtedly allow us to continue that growth pattern, supplying additional and innovative solutions to TSP’s industrial clients.”

TSP’s Industrial Automation and Control practice focuses on QCS, in which engineers maintain and optimize the systems controlling the process in production entities, such as paper mills and rubber manufacturers. TSP’s field engineers monitor the equipment and manage the QCS environment, ensuring top-quality production, increasing productivity and profitability, and ultimately ensuring customer production specifications are adhered to.

Solution Highlights Include:

  • QCS and DCS service and support
  • Preventive and emergency maintenance
  • Thermal imaging and infrared camera services
  • Process analysis
  • Control optimization
  • Radiological testing and associated services

“I see this as a win-win for both our companies,” said Roel Harsta, president of GPA. “TSP has developed a great reputation in the industry, and we’re looking forward to working together.”

Historically, both companies worked in parallel verticals within the industrial automation and process controls sector. The services that TSP and GPA did not do were either referred to various partners or passed on all-together. Now, this joint partnership allows TSP and GPA to offer complimentary solutions to their extensive client portfolios.

“TSP and GPA are uniquely aligned in company culture and how we handle business with clients,” said Bill Weiss, director of sales and operations for Industrial Automation Solutions at TSP. “Part of our growth strategy is to seek out strategic partnerships and alliances, and GPA certainly fits the bill. We are excited to see how this partnership will enhance our services and client experience.”

The partnership is effective immediately. Please contact sales@mytsp.net to speak about these services, or any services that TSP can offer.
