Over 35 Years of Automation Experience

Celco is a Winnipeg-based firm with offices across Canada. Established in 1979, we have proudly become the largest automation firm in Manitoba. With our clients' success always at the forefront, we are dedicated to offering quality solutions, superior service and unrivalled expertise.

What we've learned over the years is that separately sourcing jobs to panel manufacturers, programmers, installers, instrumentation experts and engineers is not only inefficient and cumbersome, but also detrimental to plant operations. Having the same people design the system, source instrumentation and oversee installation ensures a cohesive final product.

That's why we focus on full-service, start to finish automation. To that end, what started as panel manufacturing has quickly grown into so much more. Our services now include electrical engineering, control engineering, PLC programming, HMI programming, database application management, panel manufacturing and onsite support/services.

This growth has extended to our team as well. We've strategically hired people with specialized knowledge in key industries including mining, malting, food and grain, steel, water and waste. It's not enough to be automation experts; we feel that we also need to be experts in our clients' industries.

While our services have evolved over the past 35 years, we still operate with the same basic principles. When you choose Celco, the price we give is the price you get, and we do what we say. We believe that we're not just there for the contract, we're there for the life of the plant. We want you to succeed now and into the future, and we do everything we can to ensure that our piece of the puzzle contributes to that long-term success.
