What will Pendant Automation
Do For You?


We practice fairness and respect in all our business relationships.

We will treat each other, our clients, and our suppliers with fairness and respect and we seek business relationships with those who will treat us with fairness and respect.

We own our mistakes.

We will always own our mistakes and make things right.  We seek to do business with like-minded clients and suppliers, and to hire like-minded team members.

We aim to be profitable.

A reasonable profit is critical to the growth of a business. We will always seek win/win outcomes, and want to work with clients and suppliers who agree with this principle.

We will be responsive.

We will respond. We may not have the answer or the solution right away, but you will know that we are working on it and when you can expect to have the answer. We value responsiveness.

We will be loyal.

We will always be mindful of the value of the relationships we have built with great clients, great suppliers, and great team members who also appreciate loyalty.


Pendant Automation, founded in 2006 by Rob Ward, is your one-stop shop for control systems integration.  Pendant is located in Havre de Grace, Maryland, but we operate around the world, with completed projects in 22 different countries, and across North America, with completed projects in Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, and across the entire continental United States.

When you bring a project to Pendant, you show us your layout and your goals, and we complete the design and engineering, programming, panel build, startup, and commissioning.

Whether you are a systems integrator working with the end user, or the end user in a variety of industries and applications, Pendant realizes that the success of your project is decided by much more than just ending up with a system that works.  Our focus is to work with you to execute your project professionally, punctually, and profitably for everyone involved.
