In 1992 Drives & Controls Services, Inc. began business upon the vision of its owners who had been, and continue to be, active in electrical field service on mining excavators. They recognized a change in the future for this type of work. Their hands-on experience, supported by their knowledge in mining electrical applications, allowed for a unique partnership to be developed.

The mining industry is becoming a very competitive environment. Due to this competition, mining operations are seeking ways of increasing production of the existing mining equipment, and reducing their maintenance costs.

DCS has developed application enhancements for conventional electrical systems that have led to increased productivity and machine availability for mining excavators. The range of DCS upgrades has included excavator system controls, operator ergonomic concerns, power system voltage stabilization, and web based production monitoring.
