Chapman Corporation and Integrated Mill Systems have successfully partnered for many years on automation projects primarily for the steel industry. Integrated Mill Systems provides the design and equipment specifications for the automation integration portion of installations.   Chapman Corporation provides the constructability and installation design, power distribution design and full installation for these very challenging and fast track projects.  Working together, Chapman and IMS have forged an incredible working relationship by always getting the job done safely, on time and within budget.

Although Hodge Electrical has recently started partnering with IMS, we have confidence that IMS shares the same work ethic and high standards that we do. We are currently working on two joint projects:

  • A Turnkey project of power & controls of a Zinc Rolling Mill. Hodge Electrical will handle the complete electrical installation while IMS will provide new controls. The end user we see us a one team!
  • A Pumping project at a military installation. A very similar venture with Hodge leading the electrical installation while IMS supplies and programs the controls.

The working relationship has been tremendous mainly due to both companies’ professionalism.
