Two members of the CiSCO management team worked for the Environmental Technology/Measurement Controls Division of Lear Siegler, Inc. (LSI). Len Richter, along with Jim Gray, brought LSI into further prominence with extractive technology during the ‘80’s.

In all, these two men garnered nearly 20 years of valuable monitoring experience at LSI. Now, together at CiSCO, they’re expanding a company dedicated to creating satisfied customers. “What does it say in the contract?” has been replaced by “What does it take to make the customer happy?” This kind of management philosophy along with sales policies that put the customer first, have helped build CiSCO into a recognizable force in the CEMS/CERMS marketplace. In addition to client sensitivity, it should be noted that, with one exception, every CiSCO CEMS has been certified on the first attempt, that one exception succeeded on the second try.

CiSCO’s oldest customers are still our best and many have placed repeat orders. CiSCO’s focus remains on servicing our clients extraordinarily well! It’s unrealistic to claim 100% success, but CiSCO concentrates on keeping its accounts satisfaction index as high as possible. A leading A&E consulting firm in the utility industry conducted a survey of CEMS/CERMS suppliers. They claimed the most critical question was their final one: “Would you buy from this supplier again?” CiSCO received a resounding “YES” in every case questioned. It should be noted that CiSCO was the only company in the survey with a perfect score on that question!

Len Richter, president and founder, is a knowledgeable perfectionist who addresses every design as if it were his own. His sincere, personal conviction to offer the best possible solution in each application permeates the entire organization. Under Len’s leadership, the CiSCO team has achieved the reputation of consistently supplying the best value. Always the highest quality, often not the lowest initial price, CiSCO is committed to maximizing performance and satisfaction, while minimizing maintenance and long-term expenses.

Custom Instrumentation Services Corporation (CiSCO) is a full-service systems house specializing in the design, assembly and support of CUSTOM Continuous Emission Monitoring Systems (CEMS) and, with the integration of flow measurement, Continuous Emission Rate Monitoring Systems (CERMS). CiSCO also provides Opacity Monitors and Data Acquisition and Reporting Systems (DARS).

CiSCO received the Black and Veatch 'Outstanding Supplier Award' for 'Exceeding All Expectations'.

A full-service systems house supplies complete systems. CiSCO provides all of the hardware, software, and service to make your CEMS perform successfully for your unique application. You receive engineering assistance from concept and design, to report generation and certification, plus follow-up field service to maintain your system into the future. You can count on CiSCO to assume total responsibility for assuring that your system performs to your exact specification. You can expect guaranteed certification by an independent third party test team at a fixed price.

CiSCO is not an analyzer manufacture and so, does not incur the high overhead costs of development and production. The instrumentation industry spends huge amounts perfecting its analyzers. Manufactures’ investments in research, product development, and quality assurance have made analyzers so reliable they’re seldom the weakest link in a system. CiSCO invests its money and energy in improving the overall system, rather than individual analyzers. By avoiding all the cost associated with analyzer enhancement and manufacturing, a system specialist offers you a more economical choice. CiSCO provides a lower price for equal scope, which means more value for your dollar.

Instrument manufacturers usually have a quota or, at least, an inventory of analyzers to sell. A full-service systems house has no such pressure and is able to make the best choice for each application. With no brand loyalties or obligations, CiSCO retains the objectivity and freedom to select components uniquely suited to your exact needs. No single manufacturer makes the best analyzer for each type of measurement. By combining the technologies offered by several instrumentation companies, CiSCO provides the optimum solution in every case.

Why choose a full-service systems house? You’ll get a complete system and CiSCO assumes total responsibility. We start each job with a blank sheet of paper, with nothing but you and your individual application in mind. You’ll receive a quality, turnkey system at an affordable price with significant savings. You’ll get unbiased advice from beginning to end. CiSCO pledges a sincere, continuing commitment to your satisfaction. Please consult CiSCO for all of your CEMS/CERMS needs.
