Did you know Innovative-IDM specializes in wastewater and other water flow applications? One of our lines is Sunbelt Power Controls -- off-the-shelf and custom pump control panels and systems. We just helped a local university with their parking lot runoff application. IIDM's Sunbelt specialist Dean Morris helped the customer with the project.

Dean I want to think you so much for all the help you have been in the past and this week with our pumps and controls. This new warning system you suggested for us is going great and will save us many headaches in the future. Thanks for coming out and making sure everything was installed correctly too.

Look forward to working with you more in the future. Jim.

IIDM neighbors also dropped by to enjoy the cooking of Ed Hyer and Chicago branch manager Tim Mueller. SMC even brought over a few product samples which no doubt created lively lunchtime conversation.

I just wanted to give you feed back on the work performed here last week.

Dick Harper & Chris Crisco both contributed to the successful return to service of a Parker system late Friday 8/21/2020

I just want to let you know how impressed I was with their work ethic, drive and determination to get us a win. The thorough attention to detail ensured no chance of exposure.

We are back on line producing again, 16 hours of machine stop can seem like an eternity as you know.

Good Team you have there!!

Best regards, George, Plant Manager

Another Happy Industrial Repairs Customer

Our latest industrial drive maintenance (IDM) customer is a Houston area steel processor who recently had a 300HP Allen-Bradley VFD on his leveler machine go down for almost a week. It' s part of his blanking line.

The customer had been using another field service company to service his equipment, but that group fried the VFD while troubleshooting. The customer said to IIDM, “Come on down, we need your help ASAP”.

We took the big drive to our repairs depot in NW Houston and were able to evaluate the drive the same day (within hours). The customer approved the repairs quote. The drive was repaired, tested, and ready for a weekend install by IIDM field service techs. Our field service guys arrived with the drive on the weekend and a couple of hours later, the customer's line was up and running again.
