The EPIC Edge

Customer Testimonials

“I recommend the integration/automation services of EPIC Systems. EPIC has completed many projects for Pinnacle Foods over the last four years, successfully updating many areas of our manufacturing facility with new equipment, programming modifications, and construction management. 

EPIC is a preferred integrator for Pinnacle because they offer automation, mechanical integration, fabrication and process system services all from one company. Their experience in project management and manufacturing combined with quick service makes them a valuable partner during integration projects and facility upgrades.”

Robert Hollinshead, Project Engineer | Pinnacle Foods

“We are a technology driven company and strive to provide a technical advantage for our clients. We continually rely upon the expertise of EPIC Systems to maintain and improve our technical edge in the industry. EPIC has excellent breadth across multiple engineering disciplines. Access to this broad expertise enables us to rapidly innovate, design and implement new technologies and systemic improvements which continually improve the performance, reliability and safety of our manufacturing processes.” 

Ron Cunningham, Owner | Agraform

“Our team at Gates Corporation requested EPIC Systems to design an upgrade of our chemical mixing software and PLC programming.  EPIC’s engineers were well versed in the different technologies available and were able to explain the options to our engineers to develop the best solution for Gates Corporation.  EPIC designed and tested the system offline and provided 24-hour support at implementation which resulted in no downtime for production.  EPIC provided documentation, training and continuing support to help Gates utilize the new system to its fullest potential.   Working with EPIC made this upgrade project run smoothly and resulted in a robust system that continues to meet Gates manufacturing needs.”

Karla Bier, Ph.D., P.E. , Development Engineer | Gates Corporation

“I would like to thank EPIC and especially Ron Buss on behalf of Industrial Summit Technology for the hard work and dedication programming the PLC on our new Skybond process. Since the start up, Ron has helped us improve the process. He has worked tirelessly making sure that the program follows our standard operation procedure accurately, and we are very satisfied with the results.”

Ariel Hernandez, Resins Production Manager | Industrial Summit Technologies

“We were impressed with the professionalism and dedication of EPIC Systems’ entire organization, from the shop floor to their management team.  Throughout the entire project, their team communicated with clarity and transparency.  I would return to EPIC for future projects and I recommend their project management expertise to other organizations” 

Bob Martinelli, Director of Engineering Operations | Akermin, Inc.

“Our experience with EPIC over the past several years with recurring projects has been exemplary. The level of detail and professionalism for which they execute their business on our projects, starting with our assigned Project Manager, gives us high confidence regarding all evolution of our project including specification details, code compliance, welding procedures, and a host of other details necessary for refinery installation are all taken into account by their engineers, technicians, and other employees who touch some phase of our orders.

I have personally known the CEO for a number of years and have become familiar with his teamwork approach to business leadership and success. I also know several EPIC engineers and their professional track record from their time previously working for Fortune 500 companies. The proven experience and track record of the company technical employees, not just in years, but in breadth and depth is impressive.

Our company has a high trust and confidence level in EPIC Systems when we engage them with our business.”

Steve Huffman, Vice President of Marketing & Business Development | Mead O’Brien

“We have always had more than qualified Engineers from EPIC that could handle the work.  And over the years we have developed close working relationships with several of their people.  I don’t think you can go wrong with choosing EPIC. They are one of the best automation companies we have worked with.” 

T. Schoonenberg, Engineering and Operations Manager | The VVF, Illinois Services Company

“There have been several recent projects where EPIC personnel have demonstrated exceptional automation technical expertise, ownership, and commitment that have resulted in outstanding production results.  These include a completely new processing and batching operation involving instrumentation, PLC control and HMI implementation as well as a project to upgrade and replace a large PLC and HMI based legacy control system.  The projects have started up successfully with virtually no issues and very satisfied production personnel.”  

Rich K., Project Manager | Henkel

“EPIC is a preferred integrator for our plant because they offer automation, mechanical integration, fabrication and process system services all from one company. Their experience in project management and manufacturing combined with quick service makes them a valuable partner during integration projects and facility upgrades.”

Robert H., Project Engineer | a Fortune 1000 food processing plant

 “I wanted to express our sincerely appreciation for EPIC’s recent assistance in electrical wiring and programming for our small laboratory structured packing test stand.  This was a short-timeline project with a tight budget, to which Chris and his team (Ron B., Andy W., and Chris W.) responded with great alacrity.  The timely, quality effort was just what we needed. We are up and running now getting the critical data we need for our development effort.”

John R., Director of Engineering | a biocatalyst development company

“Tim W. was very easy to work with. I found him intelligent and could express his opinions with good arguments to reach the best solution for obstacles we encountered. It is my expressed opinion he makes your company better with his “the glass is half full” mentality.”

Terry W., Maintenance Engineer | a world-wide bulk lubricant blending and packaging company

“I value their exploration of new technology and find long term value in this company, not just for one-off projects. EPIC’s project managers keep open communication and have our trust. We know that they can do more than just get the job done; they can get it done right. We collaborate with inventive thinking based on efficiency and do not simply rely on what worked before for another client.

We truly share mutual respect. Oftentimes, we want input on our own designs and if they are the most effective and as efficient as they can be. We look to EPIC and they put our doubt and fear to rest through research and experiential proof. They get the parts on time and manage every facet of our projects flawlessly.

Even when changes arise from us or if complications occur on the vendor-side, EPIC provides on-going support when we need it most. This group of engineers treats challenges as opportunities with their “we will find a way” mentality while always keeping the highest possible priority on safety. EPIC has helped our company become an engine for growth in the global economy.”

Senior Process Engineer | a top agricultural chemicals company 

“We wouldn’t even put EPIC Systems in the running if we thought that they were incapable in any way of handling each and every one of our process and safety specifications. We have no doubt that the innovative solutions built and automated by EPIC will far surpass industry and market standards for accuracy, saving us time, money and future redesign. We want to be challenged to build the most innovative and most efficient systems for our manufacturing processes. With all of their recommendations, EPIC provides solid rationale for this caliber of advanced systems. I appreciate the fact that I have an external engineering team and that I can call or just come by EPIC to talk about a new concept or project.”
