By David Jones, Sales Manager Control Room Group
The Control Room Group (AKA the CRG) is a business unit of AVI-SPL. Created in 2002 by current CRG Vice President Sean LaNeve, the CRG works exclusively in the mission critical control room market space.
We design, integrate, install and support full spectrum command and control facilities. Our client list includes the United States Military, the Florida Department of Transportation, Bank of America and Nevada Power.
As we say at the CRG, there is no “one size fits all” control room design. We specialize in customized solutions for our clients. This requires strategic partnerships with the manufacturers of products used in the modern control room, including video cube technology, flat panel displays, human machine interface (HMI) systems and video processing technology.
The CRG is composed of teams that focus solely on one of four vertical markets:
- Utilities & Process Control
- Corporate (Network and Security Operations Centers)
The CRG teams are experts in their markets. They speak the language of the control room and understand the nuances of control center operations. But most importantly, they are familiar with the system designs that best address the day-to-day issues and opportunities that arise in each vertical market.
Our Utilities & Process Control team alone has more than 60 years of direct experience in the electric utility industry. The team has successfully completed more than 35 control room projects that range from small cooperatives to the largest Investor Owned Utilities in North America. All of our vertical teams have similar success and service records. It is our industry-specific structure and focus that makes the CRG a unique and valued strategic partner to our clients.
