Why Us? What Makes us different?

Why Us? What Makes us different?


Our Story...

Hi-Def Controls was originally incorporated in 2007 by founder Darren Hemsing, as an Instrumentation and Controls Consulting service for the EPC market.  Over the years, he found that he was continually unsatisfied by the level of post-project service that his clients provided to their clients.

In 2013, he set out to create a company that could and would support midstream energy clients throughout a control system's lifetime, rather than for the length of the project.  

For us, this means a commitment to support our client's people, by complimenting your team with our high quality technical expertise, when you need it.  Our clients are our priority, we support both engineering and operational teams alike.

If you are not getting the level of commitment you deserve from your current automation company or you just want to reach out to see how we can work together; feel free to give us a call, shoot us an email, or even stop in for a cup of coffee.  Cheers!

our community

We wouldn’t have got this far without our staff, our clients and the support from our families and community.  The owners and staff as Hi-Def Controls continue to impact the lives outside of business-life by contributing meaningfully through the mentorship of aspiring automation students, and through local charities. 

These are our communities, and we want to do our part to make things better, offer improvements and support where we can, and help push everyone forward, as a whole.


3RD ANNUAL NATHAN O'BRIEN SUPERHERO SPORTS DECATHLON

We are a proud to be involved in this event for three years running now. It's been great to see it slowly grow in the community and bring more kids out for a day of fun in the sun.

2nd Nathan O'Brien superhero sports Decathlon

Hi-Def Controls has been a part of the Kidz First Nathan O'Brien Superhero Sports Decathlon, both by a direct sponsor and volunteering.  It has been a great opportunity to give back to the community and support local aspiring athletes.


Fort McMurray Fire relief efforts

The Fort McMurray fire was an unexpected tragedy that ravaged the community in May 2016.  Many were displaced during the fire and the aftermath of the cleanup.  The employees of Hi-Def Controls stepped up to support a community who has been very good to us over the past years. Management matched the employee donation, and together donated over $2000 to the Red Cross in support of the Fort McMurray Fire Relief.

sait student mentorship and summer OPPORTUNITIES

At Hi-Def, we are enthusiastic about learning.  We want others to learn about the wide world of automation, and figured what better way then to take on a summer student to show them the ropes. We want to introduce people to our industry, we love it and want others to find passion in it as well.
