Automated Control Services

Welcome to HF Controls

Offering our customers hands-on management for the entire project, from start to finish, to give you total peace of mind.

Discover out range of services:

The complete design, manufacturing, installation and maintenance of electrical control panels for a diverse range of sectors across the UK.


At HF Controls we offer an Architecture Conception service. This involves the selection of all aspects of system arrangement from high power distribution & switching to low power automation system to best suit client operational needs within defined budget parameters.


As a complementary service to our Architecture Conception, a fully detailed design is produced for precise systems manufacture, installation and commissioning. Our detailed system hardware design is a linear process that covers everything from the initial design conception and control panel suites right up to installation.


As part of our clear and concise services in automated control design and installation, we offer functional design specification development. This covers support documentation to provide details of system operation for plant owners & operators in a familiar language.


HF Automated Controls offers a bespoke software programming design service so that your needs are met in a bespoke and tailored package.


Testing can encompass basis setup for plant simulation to prove system under test operation to more complex testing regimes to provide detailed analysis of complex system operation during normal and fault conditions.


If your business is looking to integrate a new plant extension or significant upgrade to an existing plant/site then HF Automated Controls Integration Works Service may be exactly what you have been looking for. Our team can integrate plant extensions or upgrades to existing facilities while minimising downtime for client operations.


With any facility upgrade or expansion, the installation work required can be a challenge. However with HF Automated Controls, our team can work on a supervisory role or complete the works entirely. Our installation teams have worked on sites across the world and our knowledgeable personnel can offer support to clients on sites during the installation works.

HF Control’s work in automated control systems can truly be said to be world-class.


While our clients across the UK’s individual requirements may be unique, they all share one common aspect: with our Automated Controls services, our hands-on management of the entire project, from start to finish, gives our clients total peace of mind.


Callum MacLachlan, Managing Director of Trident Engineering Consultants Limited, says:

“We have successfully completed a number of projects with HF in Automated Controls for over 15 years, from large petro-chemical related electrical and instrumentation contracts, to small but critical electrical installations throughout the UK. In such projects health, safety and quality are paramount. We have together developed a mutual dependency and trust based on their professionalism, integrity and commitment to providing a service for our mutual clients.”


Since The HF Group created the Automated Controls Division in 1996, we have grown to become a company that is turning over well in excess of £1m per year in high quality controls services work – and we’re continuing to grow and develop, embracing new automation and IT technologies as they emerge.  This can be seen in all the services that we offer and through our strategic location in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Manchester and Belfast.  This allows us to provide a world class service throughout the UK.


To quote Aristotle, says Director Brendan Duffy,

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit’. Our aim is to become a seamless part of our clients’ organisations, where we care as much about their own success as the most loyal of their employees.”
