Our History

Experience Where It Counts

Since 1987 Softrol has created innovative solutions for the textile services industry. Prior to opening its doors, the principals operated the industrial consulting firm of Keith Associates, which focused on providing solutions to various wet process industry clients.

Having observed a lack of automation and technology in the textiles services category, Softrol has evolved into a single source offering a multitude of services including design, manufacturing, and software development that enable clients to operate efficiently and profitably.

Today, Softrol has emerged as an international leader in industrial automation working with many international and U.S. Fortune 1000 companies.
