"Our suite of plant performance improvement products is leading edge, and the ability to combine these technologies with the solid plant optimization expertise of a partner like Top Control combined with the sales force of Everest Automation is very exciting," commented Michael Brown, Vice-President of Technology for Matrikon. "It will ensure that we deliver the best possible technology coupled with highly experienced, value-added services to our clients in the process industries."

"This relationship will allow us to further optimize our client’s automation systems with the application of Matrikon’s control performance optimizing technologies.
