How Are We Different?

Gap Engineering was started in 2004 by two former co-workers turned business partners who had a vision to create an Automation Engineering Company that would use innovation to change the way Automation Projects were delivered and used by their clients. The founders had a vision of making things simple again, and to deliver the promise of automation.

Automation often requires lots of complexity and hard work but has grown in a way that was not intended. With this in mind, we began working and building internal tools and methodologies to make us faster. We would strive to build the knowledge into our systems and tools to reduce the amount of work required to use and maintain them. We saw that a “Gap” had formed in automation and we wanted to fix it, and the name Gap Engineering was born!

The combined experience of our staff exceeds 300 man-years all with proven track records in process and manufacturing industries and derives it’s strength from its core employees who are the best in the industry at what they do.. We have the ability to communicate with clients making complex issues simple to understand. In addition to this, Gap has employees who have managed automation projects well over $500MM, making us an ideal Main Automation Contractor (MAC) candidate.

Gap is headquartered in Houston, Texas and has a satellite branch in Louisiana; and executes projects throughout the United States.

We have developed a very satisfied client base in the past 15 years of our existence. Our clients entrust us with extensive repeat business, and the growth of our company has been made possible by ongoing customer referrals. We strive to provide the best services possible for each and every client we service, and we look forward to our future opportunities to serve you.
