Also, and I am sure you know this, the “brainpower” of your team is impressive and any company that gets an assessment from your team needs to tap into your team’s knowledge.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank the UW Milwaukee Industrial Assessment team for the recent Industrial Assessment completed at the GKN Germantown facility. It is an extremely useful tool to have an objective evaluation of our processes and savings opportunities evaluated by an outside resource as it opens our eyes to areas we may potentially overlook. We are currently focusing on what we felt were high potential projects in your summary of recommendations. Those are the compressed air efficiency, low pressure blow offs, furnace insulation and at some point in early 2015 I plan on revisiting the power factor correction. Over all this was a great experience for GKN. "

"The team from UWM did an outstanding job performing an energy audit of our plant in Allenton WI , finding a potential annual energy cost savings of $ 195 ,000 . The audit was very extensively and professionally done . At the conclusion of the research a very comprehensive report was written and then presented with outstanding explanations. We are currently exploring the implementation of several recommendations . Thank you for the opportunity to participate in the program and please send my Thanks to the team at UWM IAC ."
