PDA Meets CSIA Certification Requirements for the 4th Time

Oct 13, 2021 (Erie, PA) – As the founding auditing firm that has performed the most CSIA audits around the world, we can confirm that Process and Data Automation (PDA) has passed the audit requirements established by the Control Systems Integrator Association for the fourth time.

Don Roberts, the Exotek Auditor, commented, “PDA is exemplary in their implementation of Best Practices. Their quality management system is built directly around the Best Practices document right down to the topic numbering. They have done a great job of migrating from an older file-based system to a SharePoint system accessible by all employees. PDA is leveraging the benefits of their new parent company, but still staying nimble enough to make sure their clients are well served. Hats off to the leadership team that stepped up to that opportunity.”

“Evaluating ourselves against the highest standards in our industry is key to providing the best service to our clients.  Therefore, the CSIA Certification process is highly valuable, as is utilizing the best auditor.” Jeremy Anderson, President at Process and Data Automation.  “In choosing an auditor, we wanted to work with the firm that we, and many of our peers, consider to be the best – Exotek.  From our first audit in 2012 through today, Exotek has provided the PDA team with the ‘how’ of achieving certification and the ‘why’.  We have left each audit with actionable steps and a clear understanding of the continuous improvement to achieve our strategic vision – to be the source of knowledge on, and provision of, Automation and Digitalization solutions for the food and beverage industries. “
