ABOUT southern Controls

“To serve our customers with quality electrical motor control and power distribution products, provided by quality manufacturers, at a fair and equitable price.”

Southern Controls, Inc. began with just two men and a very small rented facility in Montgomery, AL in 1974. Since that time, the company has grown to seven locations and over one hundred employees. With the corporate office in Montgomery and branch locations in Bessemer, Decatur, Mobile, Opelika, Smyrna, and Baton Rouge we are in position to serve a wide and varied customer base. Motor controls and sensors have always been our core business, and in recent years we have added more technically advanced offerings and also added power distribution products to our line list.

We represent over 100 companies with products ranging from standard controls such as relays, motor starters, temperature controls, etc., to more advanced offerings such as vision systems, motion controls, touch screens, PLC’s, soft starters, variable frequency drives and other “high tech” products. With the addition of our power distribution group, we now configure and provide transformers, switchboards, panelboards, busway, UPS systems and other products needed for the safe delivery of plant power within the facility. If you browse our complete line list, you will find only products of the highest quality manufactured by the best manufacturers.

Company wide, we employ thirty-five inside sales and twenty-two outside sales people available to quote prices, take your order in a courteous and professional manner, or visit your site. For application assistance and product advice, we have a fully trained group of fifteen engineers and technicians who are always willing to help.
