Company History



The origins


Streamline Automation (SA) was founded in December 2002 in Huntsville, Alabama, with an initial cash investment of the founding partners. As our client base grew, we moved our headquarters to a brand new 3,000 sq. ft. building in Chelsea Industrial Park. In 2009 we expanded our building by an additional 6,000 sq. ft., allowing for additional office space, a bigger workshop, and laboratory space. Our facilities eventually reached 15,000 sq. ft. in 2011, after a further expansion gave us more workshop space, a new area for shipping and receiving, and a larger electronics laboratory.


Our growth has been steady for more than ten years, and the company has been profitable despite the global economic conditions of the past few years. Our initial focus was to develop integrated, automated systems with emphasis on the application of smart sensors and advanced signal processing. We then started offering engineering services, and expanding our capabilities to contract research and development.


The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program has played a pivotal role in our technical and commercial success. Investments by SBIRs and private developers alike, have helped us advance our technologies, and have allowed us to successfully commercialize our products.
