Superior Controls and Banks Integration Group Merge, Creating Industry-Leading Biotech System Integration Company

Superior Controls, Inc., (“Superior Controls”) a leading control system integrator of custom industrial automation and IT solutions, is pleased to announce it has merged with Banks Integration Group (“Banks Integration”), a leading systems integrator headquartered in Vacaville, CA outside San Francisco. The combination, which is the first investment of its kind for Superior Controls, closed on March 31, 2017. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Banks Integration will retain its name as it becomes a subsidiary of Superior Controls and will continue supporting its clients seamlessly through this transition. Banks Integration’s founder, Greg Banks, will continue his role as President and remains a significant investor in the company.

The transaction combines the talents of two of the most experienced and respected integration companies serving biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. Customers will have unparalleled access and support of value-added engineering services, nationwide, to configure, implement and maintain highly automated, technically advanced and tightly controlled manufacturing processes under difficult regulated environments.

“We are very excited to be joining forces with the leading West Coast systems integrator for the biotech industry,” said Rick Pierro, Co-Founder and President of Superior Controls. “Greg and I have enjoyed working together for many years dating back to when I was president of the Boston Chapter of the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE); and he was president of the San Francisco ISPE chapter. This is a wonderful opportunity to formally collaborate to better serve our customers with multiple offices from coast to coast."

As of March 31, 2017, Banks Integration has 36 employees in the Bay Area which will be added to Superior Controls’ 77 employees. With over 100 experienced engineers, the combined company will be among the largest control system integrators in the country. Each of the companies has over two decades of experience in the biotech industry and extensive expertise in other industries, such as food and beverage.

"We are delighted to be combining with Superior Controls. This merger will enable us to better serve our customers throughout the country,” said Greg Banks. “We anticipate a smooth and exciting transition - this is a win-win for both companies, our employees as well as our clients.”
