DST Controls: Alternative Energy Division

DST Controls has been a leader in design, assembly, and integration of industrial monitoring & control systems since 1975. Still headquartered in Benicia, CA, we are a full-service ISO 9001/2008 registered, engineering and manufacturing company that is dedicated to world-class quality, cost-effectiveness, and on-time delivery.

In 2007, we launched our Alternative Energy Division to help our growing list of clean-tech customers with that industry’s unique requirements for...

  • Innovative design and engineering that solves technological problems fast.
  • Rapid prototype-assembly that allows product testing, iterative improvement, compliance certification (e.g., UL & CE), and final “commercialization,” to take place sooner.
  • Cost-effectiveness that during development, slows down R&D capital-burn—and during production, allows competitive (but profitable!) price-points.

To accomplish this, we maintain a staff of electrical, mechanical, process, and software engineers; CAD designers and drafters; instrumentation and control (I&C) field technicians; UL, CE, and CSA compliance experts; a UL registered manufacturing facility; and a very “sharp-penciled” procurement group that’s dedicated to getting our customers the absolute best pricing possible for the components we put in their systems.

So whether your product or subsystem is totally done engineering-wise and ready to be assembled by the tens, hundreds, or thousands—or whether there is still room for improvement, e.g., optimization for manufacturability, component-cost reduction, functional improvement, or standards compliance, DST is ready to help!

To summarize: our engineering group helps our domestic and foreign customers optimize their existing products and develop new ones—and our manufacturing group builds those products in commercial volumes to ISO quality standards and at globally-competitive costs.
