Why c3

There are as many reasons as the products we make (over 15 million!) We narrowed it down to the top 10.


Each of our departments offers endless opportunities for personal growth and development. We invest in our people as much as our products.

A Great Place to Work

Any company can say they’re the best. We’d rather let the people who work here speak for us.


The same way innovative engineering design drives our product performance, our core values create a distinctly different company culture.


We believe you are a reflection of where you come from, so we make it a priority to give back to our community.

A Great Place to Work!

Any company can say they’re the best. We’d rather let the people who work here speak for us.

Perfect Attendance

Employees who meet the standards for perfect attendance set an example for all other employees to aspire to. This is especially true in our Manufacturing Operations department, so in 2018 c3controls adopted a motivational incentive program to recognize and reward employees for their significant accomplishment, their commitment, and the impact their attendance has on the success of the business. Rewards include cash bonus, certificate of merit, recognition in the employee newsletter, additional paid time off and an annual grand prize worth $500.

Student Opportunities

At c3controls, we provide students with Co-Op positions to gain knowledge and critical skills while working in their respective field. Let's see what they have to say about their rotations here at c3!

Mike Reynolds – Pitt - Associate Industrial Engineer

"My time at c3controls was nothing short of terrific. I am hopeful to pick up some traits that make this company great in what they do. Coming from the classroom, I was excited to know that there is so much more from a professional setting to learn. One takeaway from working at c3 was the willingness to include me in day to day business from the start. Choosing c3 also helped me academically by expanding what I thought could be done in my career. Showing up to a relentless company motivated me by merely being around that tempo. A true company role model."

Ian Barker – Pitt - Industrial Engineer

Coming from my first rotation at a different company, I was unsure of what to expect since the two companies were very different. However, after my first team meeting I knew that my experience here would be much more fulfilling. Every employee at c3 has made me feel welcome and has done their best to answer all of my questions. In addition to enhancing my ability to apply what I have learned in the classroom, being a part of the great team at c3 has helped develop my soft skills as well. I am thankful for the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing team.

Ian Bin – RIT - Associate Marketing Representative

"c3controls has been great in helping me learn the business to business marketing landscape. Since being with c3controls I have strengthened my data analytics skills helping me look at data and using the information to best help the company track new leads and help the company grow with future potential. I also developed better communication and leadership skills during multiple projects that I had to make sure were getting done. c3controls helped me learn what a realistic and professional business setting was and helped me apply what I learned in the classroom to an actual business setting. I had an actual impact helping c3controls grow."

Bobby Dunn - University of Pittsburgh - Industrial Engineer

“The first thing I noticed at c3 was the positive atmosphere that the team creates. Everyone was happy to answer any questions I had, which really helped me feel more comfortable in my position. Along with that, c3 provides a great opportunity to learn due to its vertical integration. I was able to observe processes from when original parts are created, to when finished products are shipped to customers. I'm grateful I was given the opportunity to work at c3 to finish my co-op experience.”

Ryan Wicks - RIT - Associate Database Developer

"As a summer co-op at c3controls, I was able to jump right into a pivotal project for the organization that provided me hands-on experience in my field, as well as, the opportunity to learn as much as I could about the inner workings of a cultured and successful company. It was a pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with such great people and learn valuable skills that can be applied to the rest of my professional career."

Shreya Lad – University of Mumbai – Front End Developer

“I learned a lot of things while working for c3controls. I have improved my skill set and confidence level. Also I have gained hands-on experience working on real time project and got appreciation for the same. I am now having a great time working for c3controls full-time.”

Sonal Sharma - Vivekanand Education Society's Institute Of Technology - Product Management Engineer/PLC Specialist

"I have learned many things and am still learning every single day. My department colleagues have helped me a lot, from technical knowledge to how to handle analytical things. I was welcomed as an employee and considered this from very start of my internship. The whole c3India team welcomed me like their family member and treated me with utmost respect. The management also accepted me with more gracefully. All these gestures are uncommon as compare to my previous experiences. I feel so honored to be part of such a great company."

Abhiram Pillai - Don Bosco Institute of Technology - Electrical Engineer

“It was a fruitful experience and I feel that it has prepared me well for my professional career. The internship included many responsibilities necessary to run a business. Each day brought different circumstances, and I had the opportunity to make decisions on my own and learn from both my successes and failures. I had valuable hands-on experience and now have a better idea about what knowledge areas and skills I should attach more importance and make further improvement. A nice and supportive working environment, be it management or senior management, are always there to support us. I am grateful to be a part of such an amazing team full-time.”

Veeka Needham – Pitt - Industrial Engineer

"My first rotation at C3 Controls has not only helped me better understand and practice in my field of industrial engineering, but also has shown me the inner workings of a successful business. Because I got to be apart of a variety of projects, I got to see how many individuals in different departments play a critical role in making exceptional products. I’m excited to return for my next rotations to see and be apart of the many changes and transformations C3 continues to experience."

Anne Taylor – RIT - Inside Sales Associate

"Working at c3controls this summer has provided me with not only experience in the day to day operations of running a manufacturing business, but I have gained valuable insight into the importance of sales and marketing to ensuring the success of a business. My summer co-op at c3controls was very beneficial in seeing how every department in an organization is intertwined to make sure the company day to day affairs run smoothly."

Crandall Maines - Jacksonville University - Sales Engineer

"I was fortunate to participate in a summer internship with the sales engineers and marketing department at c3contols.My time at c3 gave me a unique perspective of the business world that any engineer is bound to interact with regularly. This internship allowed me to not only watch, but participate in the day-to-day activities of a technical business. I cannot begin to thank c3 and all of its wonderful employees enough for such a worthwhile experience."

Jeremiah Hoydich – Pitt - Associate Design Engineer

"My first rotation at c3controls has been a great experience. I felt that all of my projects made a
contribution not only to my growth as an engineer but have made a difference within the company. On

hand with any difficulty I’ve had. I definitely look forward to my next two rotations at c3!"
