“We have worked with QSI for more than 18 years, and through every transition there has never been a doubt that we would keep that relationship despite all the other qualified system integrators we meet. It’s amazing how everyone on the QSI team, both new and long-standing employees, are just really good people — the kind you like to be around. The engineers are very experienced with both legacy systems ways to balance cost and the latest technologies which allows them to find innovative and value as our plant operations grow and change. We trust and rely on the QSI team because they have always been straight forward in completing projects with a level of service that exceeds our expectations.”
