AIA Certified System Integrator

Lansing, MI – December 10, 2019 – Leading industrial automation firm Control System Integrators (CSI) earned official certification for its machine vision work from AIA, the world's largest global vision and imaging trade group. CSI joins just 21 other companies in North America to receive this prestigious designation.

By naming CSI an AIA Certified Integrator, AIA provides independent validation of CSI’s depth of expertise and experience in the rapidly growing field of machine vision integration. CSI meets specific, stringent criteria in order to be accepted into the AIA Certified System Integrator Program, including a minimum number of AIA Certified Vision Professional - Advanced Program team members, experience across industries and number of completed projects per year.

“Vision system integrators certified by the AIA are at the top of the industry in terms of skill and expertise,” says Michael Calabrese, President of CSI. “As we continue our work in a highly competitive market, clients can regard this certification as a benchmark to evaluate future integration partners and feel confident in our team and breadth of automation experience.”

Acceptance into the AIA Certified System Integrator Program is the culmination of several moves by CSI to further develop its machine vision integration business. The firm recently unveiled a new vision testing facility in its Lansing-based headquarters to support project feasibility reporting and examinations. In addition, strategic hires have built out the team’s traceability and part quality capabilities.

“Machine vision integration is a critical component in our integration offerings,” says John Calabrese, Chairman of CSI. “As we pursue opportunities, we are making sure our team has the best on-going training available to stay on top of industry developments, which the AIA network and certification process provides.”
