ACI Controls was founded in Buffalo, New York in 1945, providing almost everything that was traditionally found in the supply area of any manufacturing facility.
Achieving Growth through Acquisitions and Diversification
In 1981, Robert Wischerath, Sr. looked to expand his business and acquired two companies representing additional product lines and subsequently merged them into ACI Controls, Inc. in 1987.
The result has been a more efficient, customer-driven organization offering value through superior industry knowledge and the most competitive prices for its customers.
In 1988, ACI re-focused its sales force into two distinct organizations: the Mechanical division and the Instrumentation division. Today, the company has expanded and now has additional divisions focused on Combustion, Filtration, Valve, Automation and Field Service Solutions. This specialization guarantees product and customer expertise as well as market coverage second to none.
ACI serves a wide variety of industries and proudly represents more than 50 of the best-known lines with such world and industry leaders as ABB, Ametek, ASCO, BS&B Safety Systems, Honeywell, Magnetrol, Mettler Toledo, Parker Hannifin, Thomas&Betts, United Electric Controls, WEG and Yaskawa, and continues to be a trusted and respected resource for many manufacturers across New York State and Western Pennsylvania.
