We empower our partners to advance the world.

Who are we?

Who are we? Like most long-established companies, the answer to that question has evolved over the decades we’ve been in business. NECI, formerly known as New England Controls, has been serving New England and beyond with controls and instrumentation solutions for more than 50 years. During that time, we’ve watched as innovations in technology have advanced at an astounding pace – which has led to fundamental changes in our professional and personal lives.

Today, as a member of the Emerson Impact Partner Network, we offer the most complete portfolio of end-to-end products, services, and solutions in the industry. Additionally, we apply digital intelligence to address unique business challenges. This focus on digitalization has allowed us to enhance our clients’ ability to adapt to innovation through industry-based solutions and help them to achieve the right business outcomes for success.

This is an exciting time to be part of NECI.

Core Purpose

Empowering Our Partners to Advance the World

Core Values

With a Generous Team Spirit, we make teamwork and giving back to the community priorities in our work-lives. We believe that a culture that values a team effort also supports fresh ideas, collaboration, and individual empowerment – all of which helps NECI achieve our business goals. Most importantly, though, we believe that a corporate culture that supports a Generous Team Spirit fosters happier, more productive employees who feel valued.

Our Radical Passion for Excellence drives our mission and ensures we meet our goals and can offer our partners industry-leading solutions to meet their desired outcomes. We believe people who are passionate about their work have a growth mindset and become continuous learners. This creates positive energy in the workplace, and supports widespread excellence throughout NECI’s departments.

As an Employee-Owned Company, we strive to balance business results with putting customers first. Our employee-owners are active participants in the success of NECI – in profitability, efficiency of operations, and, most importantly, customer support. Our employees take great pride in NECI, and show tremendous awareness in their role in the success of the company.

Always Intellectually Curious, we tackle problem solving through proactive innovation; our employees are encouraged to never stop learning. We believe in giving employees the chance to think critically and creatively, and to develop a knowledge base that will support the advancement of their careers.

By being Totally Customer Focused, we foster a commitment to empower our customers to make exciting advancements in leading industries. By focusing our best efforts on our customers – particularly by understanding what drives value for our customers and what outcomes they need to achieve – we believe we can increase customer satisfaction and grow our business.
