CASE HISTORIES FROM THE CAREER OF RICHARD W. FORD

  • Reviewed the capital plan of a New York manufacturer. Determined that the proposed equipment was over-sized and cut the capital cost by 35%.
  • Conducted an energy audit of a large government installation that had spent millions of dollars on energy equipment. After ten years of disappointing results, Richard Ford was hired to review the system and found the major design defects on the first day of the energy audit.
  • Received a call from the V.P. of Manufacturing at a large food processing company after they had spent $450,000 on new equipment that did not work as planned. Reviewed the blueprints for the equipment and the five proposals that had been received to fix the problem. Regretfully informed the V.P that the wrong equipment had been purchased and none of the proposed fixes would work. Lesson learned: Please call OEM Energy Services before you buy new equipment.
