Engineering Strength

We have worked with many Equipment Suppliers over the last 25 years. Our main focus will always be Engineering and Customer service. Equipment Suppliers, as any company today, are attracted to methods to reduce their own cost and be more competitive in their market place. Travel cost are increasing and I-CAST engineers travel 50% of their time. A weekly travel intinerary is given to Suppliers and we can provide  on-site equipment/system presentations as well as gather the necessary data to prepare quotations. Project Management & Engineering is offered on an as-needed basis. Today we have Engineer/Agent agreements with three Equipment/System Suppliers.
