About Us

Tactical Controls was started with the intent to provide our customers with an expert-level service that is second to none.

We believe in developing long-lasting relationships, which benefit both the customer and our company. The principles that drive our company are Honesty, Integrity, Commitment and Discipline.


Our company was founded by Bruce Gibbens, who has built a wide range of expertise during his career. Bruce worked for the following companies:

  • NASA Ames Research Center – Wind Tunnel Facility Engineer
  • General Mills Incorporated – Engineering Project Manager
  • Vision Engineering – Control Systems Engineer
  • Engineering Automation System Integration (EASI) – Contracted Engineer
  • Rockwell Automation – Senior Applications Engineer
  • Syllogistix Integration, Inc. – Managed, Owned and Operated



Under Bruce’s leadership we have created a company where the employees and management work as a team to provide the services and solutions that our customers demand. Tactical Controls is that company that embodies those principles every day.

Tactical Controls supports clients throughout the US and internationally from our offices in Northern and Southern California.
