One of our major clients is a world leading food manufacturer and a member of one of the Fortune 500 largest corporations in the United States. Their cereals, frozen foods, and snacks can be found in more than 90 percent of all U.S. homes. Given their size, our client realized that they had limited manpower to effectively and efficiently manage all of their plant locations. EAD became the chosen provider because of our experience in industrial design and construction processes and ability to execute projects within facilities with 24/7 operations and no downtimes.
EAD has been working under a master service agreement (MSA) with this client since 2001 and is now qualified as one of their major engineering services providers (ESPs). This designation allows us to embed staff in any of their world-wide facilities. Over the years, we have provided value engineering and innovative methodologies that save our client millions of dollars. We design and manage the installation and integration of systems and processes that improve efficiency and increase sustainability.

EAD often undertakes large, multi-discipline FEL 2 through FEL 4 projects that require the collaboration of our in-house engineering team and industrial safety experts. In these projects, we frequently employ VR and 3-D scanning technologies to help us address engineering challenges. In one project, our 3-D scan of a 41,000 sq. ft facility made it possible for us to work around existing piping and duct work within the plant. In another it helped facilitate the implementation of a production line able to run 8 different products weighing up to 170 lbs/min at 160,000 lbs/day. EAD complements our own best practices through combining state-of-the-art technologies with the processes and procedures established by our client to successfully execute projects worth over $250 MM.
