Got Arsenic? National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) Can Help

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

It can be argued that the single greatest contribution to modern industrial society is the availability of clean drinking water. The majority of the human body is, after all, made up of water. People forget that it wasn’t so long ago when many people living in newly formed industrial age urban environments spent the day drinking beer, simply because safe drinking water was a rarity.

Today, municipalities depend upon large scale and complex water processing operations to ensure abundant clean water for personal consumption and use, as well as for agricultural and industrial applications. But many cities around the word, including in the United States, face a growing problem of arsenic and other heavy metals in ground water supplies. Arsenic and mercury, from both natural and man-made sources, continually threaten water supplies, and are difficult to remove. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency has been forced to increase the amount of arsenic that it allows in drinking water supplies because of the problem in dealing with it.

National Automation Services (NAS), however, has the processing automation technologies, and experience, to remove up to 99.9% of arsenic, along with other heavy metals and toxins, from water. The Nevada based company is considered a leader in helping growing communities deal with the ever increasing challenges of cost effective water processing, and is currently taking on several projects near Lake Mead in southern Nevada for the removal of arsenic. National has been called upon to supply the sophisticated instrumentation and controls needed to produce arsenic-free water.

The automation and control industry is huge, roughly $400 billion annually, since it involves such a wide range of industrial and governmental applications. The vast majority of companies involved, however, are small regional operations, without the resources to expand nationally. This is seen as an opportunity for NAS to acquire the best of these companies, providing the platform that small companies need to create a larger presence, further expanding National’s geographical and industrial influence.

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV.PK) is Cooking with Mesquite

Monday, February 7th, 2011

Mesquite, a fast growing Nevada community 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, is quickly becoming a major resort destination, largely due to its close proximity to both the Arizona and Utah borders, and the fact that it’s just off of Interstate 15. As well as being packed with resorts, casinos, hotels, spas, and golf courses, Mesquite offers an easy drive to Lake Meade and Las Vegas, as well as to Zion National Park in Utah.

At one time, however, the area’s popularity looked like it could have been its undoing. In less than 10 years, the city nearly doubled in population, putting stress on area infrastructure. The Virgin Valley Water District, serving the water processing needs of both Mesquite and the nearby Bunkerville area, realized they needed to grow significantly but responsibly, keeping in line with strict government water quality regulations. They called upon National Automation Services to work with them on an ambitious plan to connect 5 separate arsenic removal plant sites using advanced telemetry links.

NAS engineered a sophisticated SCADA system for computerized and centralized process monitoring and control, with an easy to use graphical user interface. The system has proven to be both cost effective and dependable, offering a highly maintainable operation. Downtime and labor requirements have been minimized, saving the district both time and money, and ensuring the growing community a safe and secure supply of water.

It’s the kind of project that NAS has become famous for in the Southwest, but the optimization of municipal water processing is only a small part of what the company does. NAS has worked with some of the biggest companies in the country, automating process monitoring and control operations in a wide range of industries, including automotive, chemical, electronics, food and beverage, manufacturing, mining and minerals, oil and gas, pharmaceutical, power and utilities, transportation, and more.

And now the company is set to expand nationally, with an aggressive plan to acquire carefully targeted regional players in the process automation industry.

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV.PK) Bases Company on Detailed Code of Business Conduct

Monday, January 31st, 2011

In the same way that National Automation Services has expressed a very specific strategy for becoming the automation system and control industry leader through partnerships, internal growth, and accretive acquisitions, the company has formulated a comprehensive operational code as a foundation for implementing that strategy. According to Bob Chance, CEO, it is the company’s duty to provide exceptional results and standards to all customers, shareholders, suppliers, and fellow employees, something that can be achieved only by upholding a set of core values defined by an official Code of Business Conduct.

This Code, summarized below, is meant as a guide underpinning the overall success of NAS, but could easily act as a template for any company, in or out of the automation and controls industry.

• Problem Reporting and Resolution
If employees have knowledge of any activity that is or might be a violation of the company’s standards of business conduct, they must report that activity promptly to their supervisor or management.

• Conflict of Interest
All employees must conduct themselves with the highest standards of integrity, honesty, and fairness, to avoid any conflict between their personal interests and the interests of the company.

• Giving/Receiving Gifts & Gratuities, Bribery and Corruption
National Automation, and its employees and supporting representatives, must conduct business with all customers, subcontractors, suppliers, distributors, and others, on the basis of service, quality, performance, and price, without giving or accepting anything of value that could influence or appear to influence the outcome of a transaction.

• Accurate Books and Records
To maintain the highest of ethical standards, no false, misleading, or artificial entries may be made in the books and records of the company.

• Company Resources and Product Integrity
Company resources, and the property and technology of customers, subcontractors, and suppliers (including technical data, patents, software, and materials), may not be taken, used, altered, or destroyed, without proper authorization.

• Protecting Trade Secrets and Intellectual Property
Information that is not public, whether it is sensitive NAS information, sensitive information received from a third party, or government classified information, may not be disclosed except as authorized.

• Insider Trading
As a publicly traded company, National Automation must abide by all securities laws, including those that make it illegal for those with “inside information” to buy or sell securities (stocks, bonds, options, etc.).

• Individual Respect and Concern
National Automation will not tolerate discrimination, harassment, or physical or verbal threats, all of which deny employees the opportunity to contribute to the best of their abilities and deprive the company of their full talents.

NASV has a bold strategy for its growth in this industry. The company aims to acquire and integrate the strongest local and regional players. This would allow NASV to have the efficiencies of a national company while retaining the competitive advantages of a local company that knows its local market very well.

Of the 300 smaller companies around the country, 42 meet National Automation Services’ criteria for acquisition. NASV has identified 11 of these companies which are to be targeted for acquisition over the next two years. These acquisitions will be the next step in the company’s quest to become the premier provider of automation and control systems nationally. If all goes according to plan for the company, NASV projects year-end 2010 revenues of more than $47 million and year-end 2011 revenues of over $140 million.

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV.PK) Directs Focus on National Expansion

Monday, November 15th, 2010

After recently completing the time consuming but important process of becoming a fully reporting OTCQB company, National Automation Services is embarking on its nationwide acquisition strategy, with the stated goal of becoming the nation’s premier provider of automation and control systems integration services. The company is already moving forward with expansion into California from their original operations in Nevada and Arizona, and have now opened an office in Temecula, half way between Los Angeles and San Diego. They are actively expanding their customer base in California, including manufacturers and public utilities, but are seeking acquisition opportunities in all areas of the country.

Today, the $500 billion automation and control systems industry is highly fragmented, with only a few major players in the country, and hundreds of local and regional operations. The NAS plan is to acquire the best of these smaller companies, taking over those functions that can be efficiently centralized, while leaving in place those localized functions that are so critical to customer quality. The economic benefits of scale can then benefit both the customer and the organization’s position in the marketplace.

In addition to expanding geographically, NAS wants to expand industrially, further encompassing the many different types of applications available for automation and control systems. The company already has a diverse client list, including many municipalities, where they’ve built a strong reputation in water and wastewater processing, but also including companies like Southwest Airlines, where they maintain extensive baggage control systems, Honeywell, where they support remote station security for the Alaska pipeline, and companies like Coca Cola, Pepsi Cola, Chevron, and many others. The company’s core portfolio includes

• Control Systems Integration
• Instrumentation and Control Engineering Services
• PLC and SCADA Programming Services
• Control Panel Design and Fabrications
• Contract Manufacturing
• Radio Telemetry Studies
• Automation Design Consultation
• Communication Network Design.

NAS has obtained an equity financing commitment of $5 million from Ascendiant Capital Group, LLC, a private equity firm, and is also pursuing several other financing strategies. They are also continuing an aggressive program of presentations and exhibits, with the following scheduled for 2011:

• ISA Central Arizona Section Exhibit
• Automation Treasure, NV
• Rural Water Association of AZ Leadership Conference

National Automation Services (NASV.PK) CEO Interview Available at SmallCapVoice

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

Recently, Bob Chance, President and CEO of National Automation Services, an established regional automation and control systems company with plans to go national in 2011, sat down for an interview with SmallCapVoice.com, discussing the company’s future plans. In particular, he went over the aggressive acquisition strategy they are currently pursuing. Below are some of the key points of the interview:

• The automation and control industry represents a $400 billion per year market. It serves virtually any operation involving the flow of items or materials, providing automation and control technologies that allow these processes to run automatically, with little or no human intervention.

• The industry has only a handful of major companies, such as Siemens, Johnson Controls, and Honeywell, together with roughly 300 small regional companies, mostly in the $3 million to $5 million range. Many of these are excellent companies, but simply don’t have the resources to expand beyond their regional operations.

• The fractured nature of the industry represents an opportunity for NAS to acquire the best of these companies, creating a national presence. The company is already in discussions with acquisition targets, and is expecting to move forward very rapidly, going national sometime next year.

National Automation Services (NASV.PK) is Ready to Roll

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

National Automation Services, a process automation control solutions company seeking to grow nationally from its base in the Southwest, is now able to move forward with plans for expansion. The steps required to become a fully reporting company, though critically important to their presence in the investor market, limited National in what it could do strategically. Now that the process is completed, and the company is fully reporting, they are ready to roll with their originally stated strategy of both geographical and industrial expansion.

National has already begun its move into California. They are currently designing and building control systems for two California equipment manufacturers, and are actively working in the public utilities sector in Los Angeles. They have opened an office in the state, and are looking for acquisition opportunities there, but are also continuing to target firms in other areas of the country.

According to recent press releases, they are holding firm to their goal of becoming a nationwide producer of automation and controls. In addition, they intend to continue expanding industrially, building from their strong reputation working with water and wastewater systems for municipalities. Their portfolio now includes work with companies like Coca Cola, Pepsi Cola, Weyerhauser, Honeywell, Watson Pharmaceuticals, Chevron, and Southwest Airlines, all increasing National’s industrial diversity.

With Southwest Airlines, for example, National supports operations at the Las Vegas McCarran International Airport, maintaining an extensive baggage handling system which examines the baggage and automates the sorting. For Honeywell’s Security Division, National manufactured specialized control panels used by Honeywell for station security at remote locations on the Alaska pipeline.

The company is now hoping to kick expansion plans into high gear, with steps toward specific acquisitions by as early as the end of 2010.
