PP Control & Automation has grown to become one of the world leading providers of control and automation solutions. Employing over 200 staff, the site at Walsall supplies control systems, cable harnesses and high added value solutions to many of the world’s largest and most successful machinery manufacturers.

With an unrivalled commitment to quality and lead time, the business has grown 100% over the last 6 years. The development of their workforce has been key to initiating and sustaining such substantial growth. In response, the company has founded its own in-house “Excellence School of Training” to progress both the culture and skills required in an ever changing market.

With a high degree of automation, over £1 million has been invested in state of the art cable preparation so that PP can provide levels of world class connectivity that are unparalleled.
