President Alan Ferrin: A Visionary Leader
Leading the Cornerstone Automation team is President Alan Ferrin, a seasoned professional with over 40 years of experience in process controls engineering and automation. Alan’s vast expertise extends to machine design and development, systems integration, and machine repair and maintenance. His journey began with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering, which laid the foundation for his remarkable career.
With a team that possesses strong troubleshooting skills and a willingness to get their “hands dirty” to get the job done, Alan states, “Where some companies will only work on controls, our guys are scrappy and will work tirelessly to figure out the root of the problem.”
This approach stems from Alan’s unique perspective on problem-solving, which originated from his previous role as a plant engineer overseeing wholesale baking manufacturing facilities. This experience gave him invaluable insights into the intricacies of industrial processes, making him a true expert in the field.
