Read what our customers have to say...

"I found it very beneficial, its a pleasure to visit AIT, you all conduct yourselves very professionally and that also shows through in the works you are currently performing for us. Well done and many thanks again."
"Automation IT are singled out for your efforts"
"Automation IT were recommended to us to provide a complete control system solution for our first Cogeneration Module. With the tight deadlines we imposed and varying nature of the work, Automation IT made available the resources to ensure that the project could be completed within our required time frame. At the completion of the project, not only were we satisfied with the end result but so too was our customer. We have since used Automation IT for our other projects. Their willingness to work in with us, our project schedules and provide support after project completion ensures that we will continue to use them for future work."
