PLC Controls

Whatever your Controls needs are, we can cater for it. Be it writing software built into a customer's existing code or full development using our own in-house software library. We are happy to provide software for Siemens, Allen Bradley, Omron, Schneider or Mitsubishi PLCs. 
Our custom auto code generation scripts can quickly build error-free software for PLC and Emulation models. 

Emulation / Simulation

With project life-cycle becoming ever more condensed, being able to prove a concept or test software without any physical hardware is crucial. We can offer full FAT for PLC, SAC and SCADA. So you can be confident on site commissioning and downtime is an absolute minimum. We can also offer simulation or emulation of software for bids and tenders. We can offer models in 3rd party emulation environments or own own custom built Grove DigiTwin software.

Site Support

Our highly professional team of Grove Engineers can support site works whether it be surveys, electrical installation, setting to work, commissioning, Site Acceptance Testing (SAT), go-live, reliability, or breakdown cover. All Engineers have relevant qualifications, time-served experience, up to date CSCS/ ECS cards and PPE. Grove Automation can also offer remote support via VPN connection.  

Vision Systems

Vision Systems are increasingly being used to improve quality and productivity throughout many different industries. Grove Automation can design and supply a Controls System with Vision capabilities to provide the client with benefits such as consistent error proofing; improved product quality; increased productivity, production flexibility and floor space; reduced operating costs, downtime and scrap rates; tighter process control; improved worker safety and more accurate inventory control; .

Electrical Design

We can offer full electrical design, in-house, at Grove Automation. Our drawings are linked directly to our code generation scripts, meaning a streamlined and cost effective approach to automation projects. 

System Design

Do you need help designing layouts or putting together a tender? Or perhaps you need help with the technical areas of an FDS. Contact us; chances are we've seen the right way and wrong way to do it.

Robot Programming

Grove Automation can integrate Robots into your required solution whether it be a caged or collaborative (Cobot) process. Our engineers can work with the Robot supplier and end Client to achieve the best results. 


SCADA is crucial for operation and maintenance of any plant. We can offer a variety of packages including cloud hosted options or local server based software. We can also write PLC software to work with an existing SCADA system.

SAC / High Level Software

High level software sits on top of almost all large automated systems. Our engineers can integrate PLC software with existing SAC software or provide a new SAC system to requirements.

QA / System Validation

We can offer quality assurance to make sure projects are on track and meet the original requirements. We can provide FAT, IFAT and SAT services as part of our projects or as a project in it's own right.
