Embodying Core Values: The SCADA Mascots of Nor-Cal Controls

Once upon a time, in the bustling office of Nor-Cal Controls (Nor-Cal), there lived four remarkable creatures: SCADAfoot, SCADApus, SCADAsaurus, and SCADAtooth. These were not ordinary beings; instead, they embodied the essence of Nor-Cal, a renowned company known for its exceptional customer service and core values.


SCADAfoot was a sturdy giant of dependability, towering above, with an uncanny ability to troubleshoot any technical issue and was the go-to creature for all matters related to SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition).

SCADApus, on the other hand, was a creature of speed and agility. It had multiple limbs that allowed it to work on several projects simultaneously, showcasing the company's commitment to hard work and efficiency. SCADApus was always eager to lend a helping hand and often provided swift solutions to the most complex challenges.


SCADAsaurus was the wise elder of the trio. With its ancient wisdom and experience, SCADAsaurus was the living embodiment of trust and family within Nor-Cal Controls. It acted as a mentor to new employees, instilling in them the values that had made the company successful over the years.

And last but certainly not least, there was SCADAtooth, the newest addition to the team. With a sharp and analytical mind, SCADAtooth symbolized its vast knowledge of control systems. Its insatiable curiosity and hunger for learning drove the company's continuous pursuit of excellence.

One sunny morning, a prestigious customer approached Nor-Cal with a critical project. The stakes were high, and the deadline was tight, but the customer had complete trust in Nor-Cal’s' ability to deliver. The four creatures gathered in the heart of Nor-Cal’s headquarters, located in El Dorado Hills, CA, where all three of them analyzed the intricate project details and advised on the best strategies to ensure success.

As the days turned into nights, the team worked tirelessly, reflecting the company's dedication to hard work. Each played a pivotal role, complementing one another's strengths and expertise. SCADAfoot provided the technical insight needed to design a flawless SCADA system, SCADApus oversaw the implementation with lightning speed, while SCADAtooth brought innovative ideas to enhance the project. SCADAsaurus ensured that the teams worked together like a close-knit family. It was then that the true strength of their values shone through.

Together, they tackled the challenges and the project turned out to be a resounding success.

From that day forward, SCADAfoot, SCADApus, SCADAtooth, and SCADAsaurus became legendary symbols of Nor-Cal’s core values being:

Hard work

All of these values guide the company and its employees to greater heights of success!

And so, the tale of these extraordinary beings continues to inspire Nor-Calians who work on-site as well as remote, reminding them of the power of unity and the importance of upholding a strong mission statement and core values in every endeavor they undertake.
