MADISON, WI, Aug. 27, 2014 -- The Control System Integrators Association (CSIA), a not-for-profit, global trade association aiming to advance the industry of control system integration, recently announced it has certified a control system integrator company in Africa, demonstrating its commitment to promoting the highest standards in business and management in the automation industry around the world.

The certified company, GIL Automation, is the first company in Africa to reach the CSIA certified level. A system integrator based in Nigeria, GIL Automation serves the oil and gas, food and beverage, power, water, and mining industries.

CSIA certification requires integrator companies to undergo an intense third-party audit and follow strict performance standards. Members must meet or exceed the 79 criteria taken from CSIA's Best Practices and Benchmarks Manual to become certified. An audit is required every three years to maintain the certification.

"Certifications are important to all industries," said Bob Lowe, executive director of CSIA. "Being CSIA certified is the only way that directors of manufacturing, plant operations managers and other industry leaders know they are choosing and working with one of the most professional and capable control system integrators available."
