I’ve worked for a couple of the largest controls contractors in the country, but working at Pritchett Controls is truly a breath of fresh air. It’s nice to work with 100 of the best controls people in the area. I just wish I had found Pritchett Controls 20 years ago!

One of the best parts of my job is the support I receive from my supervisor, my department, and Pritchett Controls staff. We work as a team, and everyone is always willing to assist. Because of that, we address issues as needed and meet with success!

Never experienced a happier, more positive work environment.

Pritchett Controls is committed to caring about its customers and moreover the family of employees!

I‘ve worked for other companies where I’ve felt like just a number or a cog in the big wheel, but here I get to make a difference and I find that very rewarding.
