Most Challenging EPIC Project:
“I enjoy all of the work and find the projects at EPIC very interesting. The most challenging project was a blending skid for a leading agricultural company. The first unit was built here and sent to Costa Rica. It had to withstand the long shipping process and a harsh installation environment in a foreign country. The company has been impressed with the technology and craftsmanship of our skids and we’ve built 10-12 units for them.”
Most Rewarding Project at EPIC:
“The most rewarding project was the turnkey installation in Texas. It was neat for me to be able to see this project from beginning to end. Last year, I even went to Texas to install the project. It was a big project.”
