Saving energy is our passion and we’ve been doing it for a while now. Hench Control was established in 1989 and has been operating continually since its founding. We started out small, like any company wanting to make a lasting impact, we aimed to play our cards right. For the first few years, we sold primarily on the West Coast, but our family started growing soon after. We’ve since expanded worldwide. Today, the steady increases in energy costs have forced corporations to evaluate opportunities to realize energy savings in their operations. Energy management has now become a competitive criterion, one which we eagerly provide.
Most recently, Hench Control was acquired by a private investment group and put a new management team and staff in place. Under our new system, we have been awarded a contract for technical support services with Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), one of the largest combination natural gas and electric utilities in the United States.
We appreciate the power of teamwork. We’re heavily invested in a second generation of management as well as an aggressive, energetic new wave of engineers, production assistants, techs, operators and field personnel. We’re continually looking into the next level of performance while remaining focused on energy management and highly personalized customer service.
Energy Management Control software development has been a continual, ongoing effort at Hench Control; new features and control schemes have been added and improved on since the software’s creation. In addition to the Energy Management Software, we have also developed a color graphics package that facilitates quick, easy system setups, as well as alarm/pager software. The advent of having the ability to write and implement software to infiltrate and be compatible to large PLC-based control companies is a great indication of our system’s flexibility. To top it all off, we’ve also added internet capabilities. Current software projects include communication speed improvements between computers and controllers, and improvements in the speed of the color graphics package.
