Automationdirect.com, originally founded as PLCDirect in 1994, has quickly grown from a tiny PLC company to a well-recognized name in the Industrial Automation Market. As the first industrial controls company to successfully use a direct sales catalog for Programmable Logic Controllers, Automationdirect.com uses its cyberspace superstore, in addition to its 800 number, to sell tens of thousands of industrial control products. Its three driving forces for success are low prices on quality products, fast shipping, and superior customer service. The company's ability to sell high-technology automation products for very low prices depends on the efficiencies inherent in a direct marketing model.
