Industry Testimonials

“Your team did an outstanding/professional assessment at PHD, at which we have implemented a number of the recommendations and achieved significant savings.”
David French, Vice President of Operations, PHD Inc.

“Thank you for the comprehensive energy audit you and your students performed at Jeco Plastic Products. I was very impressed with the research, the professional presentation, and the thoughtful recommendations. 1. Research. The accumulation of energy data and the energy characteristics of the equipment was complete and accurate. Often, such basic research is incomplete, which in turn results in false conclusions. 2. Presentation. Your students handled themselves in a professional manner, asked relevant questions, and prepared an excellent report. The conclusions included relevant data and computations that supported the recommendations. The format was excellent. 3. Recommendations. The recommendations were sound, and the payback calculations allow us to prioritize the alternatives. Even those recommendations that you qualified as impractical (such as the air curtains) were imaginative and have merit. This is an excellent example of the kind of support the university system in Indiana provides manufacturers, and it represents the partnership of business and academia that few other states can duplicate. Thank you for your assistance in this vital area of energy efficiency.”
Craig Carson, CEO, Jeco Plastic Products
