Our History

Robert J. Tomasetta founded Automated Control Concepts Inc. (ACC) in January 1983. To start ACC, Bob left the confines of the General Electric Programmable Logic Controller business to open ACC’s first office in Union, New Jersey, focused on programming those then very “mysterious” programmable controller devices. Today, ACC has grown to become a much-admired company having successfully executed projects in many industries and applications on five continents
