Our Story


Our Story Begins with a Man and a Vision

Dave Emmett, one of the original designers of the Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), founded the company in 1981 under the name Superior Controls. Dave built his business on a core principle: “If it’s good for the customer, good for the company, and good for the team, then it’s the right thing to do.”

1986 - 2012

The Birth of RedViking

We rapidly grew beyond controls into the development of error proofing and factory information systems, design/engineering of powertrain test machines, custom assembly systems, and dynamic test systems. RedViking Group was established as a subsidiary Superior Controls after receiving a contract to redesign the powertrain testing process, machines, software, and controls for the world’s largest U.S. Army helicopter Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) center. We continued expanding by opening a Texas engineering center in 2012.


RedViking and Superior Controls Join Forces

In 2014, Superior Controls and RedViking Group merged, unifying operations to reflect our broad base of experience. Drawing from 30+ years of experience, our workforce comprises talented computer, software, mechanical, electrical, and controls engineers, alongside adept program and project managers. With state-of-the-art engineering and manufacturing centers in Michigan and Texas, our turnkey manufacturing automation company swiftly addresses some of the most difficult engineering challenges across the globe, excelling in industries like transportation, aerospace, commercial vehicles, defense, electric vehicles, and emerging markets.
