About Us

For over forty years, customers around the world have trusted Red Lion Controls. Our award-winning industrial automation and networking solutions provide critical information and controls to improve productivity, working with numerous devices and diverse protocols to access data.

Red Lion first established itself as a provider of superior Industrial automation products, earning nationwide recognition for being the #1 panel meter company in the United. Looking to broaden its product portfolio, Red Lion acquired Paradigm Controls, a UK-based leader in the operator panel market, in 1996.

In 2010, Red Lion – realizing the potential of Ethernet for industrial applications – acquired N-Tron, a well-established manufacturer of hardened industrial switches. The combination of Ethernet with automation enables customers to not only communicate and display data, but also move data from the manufacturing plant through the enterprise. The following year, the company added industrial RTUs, layer switches and cellular M2M products with the acquisition of Sixnet, a leading provider of industrial networking solutions for markets such as power, utilities, transportation, maritime, military and more.

We know that you rely on our products, and while they might only comprise one part of your overall system, they play a vital role in keeping your operation running.
