Custom equipment construction

“We were looking for a smaller engineering firm to do the work and that smaller firm had to be innovative as well because we are not building something that’s been done previously, it’s all pretty novel work.”

EPS in Action

Waste disposal system cuts costs $300,000, achieves 75% ROI

A diversified biotechnology company needed to reduce the dust level produced by its plant’s bulk handling systems and to reduce employee exposure to respirable particulate. EPS personnel went into the plant and developed a design to modify the poorly designed existing bulk handling system.

Not only were the firm’s dust levels and respirable particulate issues resolved, the design made the bulk handling system more reliable and cost-effective to run. Now everyone is breathing easier.
