About the Owner/Founder
Matt Hess has been working with PLCs and Electrical Control Systems since graduating from technical high school back in 1986. He immediately got a job as a service technician with a packaging machinery distributor and was exposed to many different types of electrical control systems. He was still working in this capacity when PLCs first began making their way into machine control systems in a widespread way in the late 80’s and early 90’s. After a successful career in the packaging industry, Matt took the opportunity to work for a medical device manufacturer where he was further exposed to more complex PLC control systems. In 1998, Matt took the leap of starting his own business, focusing on onsite troubleshooting and programming PLCs and other automation equipment, building a customer base mainly from word-of-mouth and referrals from satisfied customers. Continuing on this path has allowed the company to grow into a (5) person team of qualified professionals to continue to satisfy the needs of our growing customer base. 2016 sees the company name changing from Sun Services to PLC Paramedics and continued growth.
