As of March 1, Sunbelt Power Controls is fully integrated into Innovative-IDM. Richard Kreekon, who worked since 2016 to make this transition a reality, has moved on to retirement.

Sunbelt is now a brand name for a product (pump control panels) sold by Innovative-IDM. We have UL508A panel shops in Dallas, Houston and Chicago. All Sunbelt panels are designed with quality components, built to exact schematics and are subject to a rigorous quality control process.

Dean Morris is your contact for the Sunbelt product line, and he can also help you with any of the other products and services -- including electronic repairs and field service -- offered by Innovative-IDM.
