CIFT an Ohio MEP worked with Designetics’ leadership including CEO Sydney Spraw to increase the output at their Holland facility, thereby improving the employee work environment from a labor intensive environment to a more automated one, while increasing productivity. Their current process was manual and labor intensive. CIFT’s guidance for enhancement would directly affect both output and employee morale.
CIFT introduced Projects Design & Built (PD&B) to Designetics’ to address their need for automation by retrofitting and upgrading current machines, and then provide installation and startup of the new control system at Designetics. The new setup will essentially eliminate the labor of an operator for these processes. The manpower can be used elsewhere within the facility, thus providing significant labor savings.
