Scott Hendrickson, our Founder and CEO, began his automation career in 1985 at Osram-Sylvania where he was part of their Robotics Team. In 1988, Scott joined Parker Hannifin’s newly formed Automation Division where he had commercial and technical responsibilities for clients in the New England markets.

In 1998, Scott was sponsored by Parker Hannifin to start a new Automation Technology Center (ATC) in the Pacific NW. Olympus Controls slowly expanded its technology offering to include the complementary products – safety, vision, robotics – that clients needed to design and develop automation systems.
