“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.
This was especially important to us as this pilot plant project was a first-of-its-kind for Akermin. Project scope changes were handled quickly and equitably. I would return to EPIC for future projects and I recommend their project management expertise to other organizations requiring a turnkey contractor for design, fabrication, and commissioning.”
Bob Martinelli, Director of Engineering Operations | Akermin, Inc.
“I have had the pleasure to work with EPIC on numerous successful jobs, and I’ve been impressed with their team of process engineers and skilled craftsmen. They are adept at achieving specified separations through column sizing and process modeling. Quality and customer service are clearly priorities for EPIC, and I recommend them for any distillation project”

“Mead O’Brien is a customer of Epic Systems for both engineering and skid-mounted fabricated safety systems. Our experience with them 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, Marketing and Business Development | Mead O’Brien
“As a plant we have relied on EPIC Systems to be our main resource for process design and to be a project manager on some of the bigger projects. We like using EPIC since they are very cost effective for the value you get. When we have dealt with some of the larger Engineering firms, they tend to involve too many disciplines that are not necessarily required.” With EPIC, we get the Engineer who can handle the job, and we deal directly with him (her).
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.”
T. Schoonenberg, Engineering and Operations Manager | The VVF, Illinois Services Company
“EPIC Systems takes a conservative approach to safety, touching all safety bases such as earthquake and fire control. Careful and thorough implementation of the projects from all disciplines, including document control and cost control, made the projects move surely and safely.”
Andy S., Project Manager | Teknor Apex
“Our collaborative partnership with EPIC enabled us to deliver a strategically-important project on budget and within a very aggressive timeline. Installation and start-up were completed in a matter of weeks and products made in the EPIC-supplied equipment fully met expectations upon first production.”
William P., Project Engineer | global manufacturer of specialty chemical company
“We chose EPIC based on their strengths in several areas and they did not disappoint. They have first rate technical know-how. EPIC did an excellent job in designing our modular blending plant. The design included explosion proof design since there were flammable chemicals involved. It included 11 blending tanks for 3 different finished products and a tank farm to house 9 different bulk chemicals.”

“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.”

“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.”

“EPIC offered an in-house construction service where they built modular skids for our blending systems. Six modular units containing two blending vessels each were shipped to our plant and installed with very few problems. In Illinois, we have very expensive construction labor. While this endeavor saved us quite a bit of expense, we found the quality of their delivered product was top-notch, conforming to all ANSI and GMP standards.”
