About Us

B&L Control Service Inc. is a family-owned business located in Ballston Spa, New York. Founder Bruce Thomas started B&L in 1977 out of his garage. His first customers were drawn to Bruce's drive to ensure that every need was met. Following Bruce's passing in 2001, his son Adam has worked hard to continue his father's vision, and with the support of the entire B&L crew, continues to grow the company to meet the ever more demanding needs of our customers. Many of the products we carry are in stock for immediate delivery, installation or service.
