Wright-Pierce Expands Instrumentation and Control Services
Andrew Ian Industrial Instrumentation Expert Hired to Lead New Division

John W. Braccio, President and Chief Executive Officer of Wright-Pierce, announced the expansion of the company’s Instrumentation and Controls (I&C) services with the formation of a new Instrumentation Integration and Field Services Division.

Mr. Braccio explains the decision to strengthen the company’s Instrumentation and Controls capabilities. "In our world of increasing technological capabilities and use of microprocessors, computers and telemetry systems — instrumentation, controls and computerized Supervisory, Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems are becoming increasingly more important features for efficient and cost-effective operations of water and wastewater facilities. Our new Instrumentation Integration and Field Services Division allows us to provide more comprehensive instrumentation engineering services to our water and wastewater clients.”

Wright-Pierce’s Instrumentation and Control Division has traditionally provided engineering services for the evaluation and design of I&C systems. The new Instrumentation Integration and Field Services Division expands these services to include: troubleshooting, optimization and upgrading of existing I&C, SCADA and telemetry systems; development and integration of customized software monitoring, control and reporting systems; and fabrication, installation and start-up of new control and telemetry panels.

This new Division will be directed by Andrew Ian, MSEE, CCST. Mr. Ian is a recognized industrial instrumentation expert with over 40 years of experience, including more than 20 years as a systems integrator for the water and wastewater industry. Mr. Ian will oversee Wright-Pierce’s newest office located in Hampstead, NH, where integration, field services and panel fabrication will be based.
