Superior Controls in Seabrook merged with Banks Integration Group in California, the first investment of its kind for Superior Controls. Banks Integration will retain its name and continue operations as it becomes a subsidiary of Superior Controls, with Banks Integration’s founder, Greg Banks, continuing his role as president and remains a significant investor in the company.

Founded in 1993, Superior Controls provides automation and control systems integration services to companies in 30 states and 15 countries. The company received Business NH Magazine's 2013 Business of the Year for Manufacturing/Technology. Banks Integration is based in Vacaville, California and also offers systems integration services. 

As of the merger's closing on March 31, Banks Integration has 36 employees in the Bay Area which will be added to Superior Controls’ staff of 77 employees.  With over 100 experienced engineers, the combined company will be among the largest control system integrators in the country.  Both companies have over two decades of experience in the biotech industry as well as other industries, such as food and beverage. 

“We are very excited to be joining forces with the leading West Coast systems integrator for the biotech industry,” says Rick Pierro, co-founder and president of Superior Controls.  “[Banks] and I have enjoyed working together for many years...This is a wonderful opportunity to formally collaborate to better serve our customers with multiple offices from coast to coast."
