Based in Stockport, Hardy’s Professional Services provides high quality PLC and SCADA systems to industry. Established in 2010 by Andrew Hardy, who has been designing, installing and commissioning control systems since 1987. He has extensive experience in Siemens, Allen Bradley, Omron, Modicon and Mitsubishi PLCs, InTouch, Control Maestro and Citect SCADA as well as a host of HMIs, in a variety of industry sectors including plastics, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, minerals, and food and drink.
HPS offer services on a fixed price basis. I try to avoid charging for extras (essentially if the URS / hardware doesn’t alter I don’t think the price should either). The one exception to this general rule is commissioning, as there are too many factors outside the control of HPS to allow for commissioning on a fixed price basis.
How can I offer fixed prices? In a word – experience. After programming multiple PLCs, HMIs and SCADA systems for dozens of end users across a wide range of industries I have developed a highly efficient method of project development from the URS right through to plant handover.
