Electrical Engineering

Nothing changes so much in this world than the designs of electrical control systems. The only way to keep up with the technology is to be constantly involved in state of the art projects. Over the years, we have generated electrical designs using all kinds of components. We have developed an expertise in figuring out somebody else’s electrical prints and troubleshooting their systems. We have tremendous experience with plant floor communications networks and have spent many late nights pinpointing troublesome communications glitch and providing a permanent fix.

Project Management

Avoiding the pitfalls of construction and startup is a determining factor in getting to the end of a project in time and on budget. Our experience serves us well when providing construction management or when called in to rein in some facet of the construction that has gone awry. The best situations are when we are involved in the design, the construction, the programming, and the startup. We are well known for driving projects to completion by keeping an eye on the details, recognizing early what will be the problem areas, and then keenly attacking them.

Programming Services

If we are known best for anything, it is our industrial programming. There are a lot of programmers out there who can write a program and get something to "basically work". But the devil is in the details. The code must be reliable and maintainable which means the underlying structure must be solid as a rock. (How is your alarm interlocking? Do your programs “hang”? Is it easy to map out modifications? Is your HMI easy to use?). We can write your programs or we can define your strategy and your code standards – enterprise wide. Those who we have worked for are, to this day, reaping the many cost benefits of our relationship.
