YORK, Pa., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Red Lion Controls, the global experts in communication, monitoring and control for industrial automation and networking, today announced that the company is celebrating 40 years of providing innovative products to customers around the world.

Red Lion first established itself as a provider of superior industrial automation products, earning nationwide recognition for being the #1 panel meter company in the United States - a title that is still held today.
