Integrated Process Automation and Control Technologies

Incorporated in 1986 by a group of engineers who believed that manufacturing needed a fresh approach to process and project design, IPACT has grown to a group of 32 engineers with an average of 15 years of process experience in a variety of industries. IPACT’s 16,000 square foot facility is located about 40 miles southeast of Chicago in Valparaiso, Indiana. Although located in the heart of the Midwest, IPACT has quoted and has installed systems world wide.

We are a supplier of automation systems, control systems, Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), and consulting services. We supply automation based on Windows platforms, OpenVMS platforms, and PACs. We use proven structured design methodologies and simulation to minimize startup costs and time. We are trained and certified to provide systems using many state of the art automation solutions.

We take great pride in our design, development and test methodologies. This enables us to get the job done right and on time for the customer.

IPACT has its own development equipment (servers, PACs, workstations, and software products), giving us the ability to stage and simulate the customer’s process. This enables us to do upgrades, searches for obscure bugs, and maintenance support without disrupting the manufacturing process. IPACT can support our customers’ long-term maintenance requirements by having the capability to stage their system at our site and making remote support possible.
