Why Are We Called APQ Engineering?

A*P*Q is the formula for Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).

Our mission is to apply automation and information systems to improve industrial operations.

We ensure that your systems will start up quickly and continue to work reliably by implementing careful design, documentation, and follow-up. The control panels we design use high-quality components that are selected for reliability and performance rather than the lowest bid. Each panel is professionally built, UL listed, and tested before shipping.

What Makes us Different?

Reliable Quotes
We avoid change-order surprises for our clients. Our quotes are accurate and reliable because we have the experience and spend more time on the front end to understand each project’s unique requirements and constraints.

Accurate Documentation
Accurate documentation is critical to help your maintenance group minimize downtime. We provide clear and accurate schematics that will reduce installation and troubleshooting time.

Quality Control Panels
Our panel designs will reduce installation cost and improve reliability. Field wire entry and routing is carefully planned to reduce installation time and mistakes. Components are selected for reliability and maintenance instead of just the low bid and our control panels are built in professional UL508A shops.

After the project is completed, we follow-up to check that the systems are performing as expected.  After a system is run for a while the opeators will often identify small changes that can improve performance.
