Red Lion Panel Meters

Control Design, a global industry leading publication for machine builders, invited 22,000 professional machine-building individuals with buying authority or influence within their organisations to take part in a confidential, unaided ballot across over 60 product categories – a ballot of the machine builders, by the machine builders, for the machine builders.

In addition to being recognised for the best panel meters in the competition, the readers also placed Red Lion Controls in the top five for wired network components; network routers and switches; and protocol converters, bridges and adapters. Not a bad effort Red Lion!


Editor in Chief of Control Design, Mark Bacidore stated, “our readers have spoken, making it clear that Red Lion is a valuable partner and supplier for a variety of automation technology,” and added that it is clear machine builders are sticking with what works; evident in the fact Red Lion has retained top spot for over a decade and a half.


Mike Grandy, President of Red Lion Controls, proudly announced “such customer reception for our industrial automation and networking products is truly gratifying… as a ‘Customer First’ driven organization with over forty years of history, we strive to provide performance and reliability that our end users have come to rely on. This award is a true testament to our achievement of that goal.”
