Providing Capital Equipment at Lower Cost
How can we provide superlative capital equipment at lower costs? Our “Value Engineers” have real world experience in the design and manufacture of all aspects of your equipment, from process and power piping, to ASME pressure vessel design and manufacture, to outsourcing equipment from low cost fabricators in Mexico. Our experience and organizational structure stimulate creativity. Although we can provide “Standard” equipment, we excel at designing customer solutions tailored to a specific need or application. Rather than “shoe horn” a catalog component or system to “fit” the application or modify your requirements to suit an available design, we examine each application as unique opportunity. The result is equipment designed to meet YOUR needs, cost-effectively manufactured and delivered timely.
Enpure Process Systems, based in Plymouth, MA, was founded in 1991 as a manufacturer of custom designed water treatment systems to OEM suppliers, such as Culligan, US Filter, and Wheelabrator. With a continual emphasis on cost control and innovative solutions to difficult applications in all water treatment methodologies, the business grew. The customer base expanded to include direct sales to end users in all major industries, including Power Generation (Midwest), Semi-conductor (IBM and Lucent), Beverage (Pepsi Cola and Brown Foreman) and Specialty Chemical (Cabot).
In 2000, the founding management relinquished control of the company. While new management maintained the company’s core principles, the sales efforts were consolidated internally and redirected to focus on new growth, primarily in semi-conductor markets. Sales stagnated as customers consolidated and pulled back.
In 2006, the founding management retook control and implemented a bold new marketing and manufacturing plan to expand sales and reduce costs. The company’s core skills in engineering, design, quality control and procurement were maintained in house. Direct Sales efforts were outsourced to Manufacturer Representatives to expand our reach and provide more continuous contact to our customers and markets. Manufacturing “partners” with low cost structures in strategic locations were enlisted to provide fabrication and assembly services, eliminating costly overheads and providing access to more competitive labor rates.
In 2014, in an effort to be closer to our many customers along the Gulf Coast, and to reduce our manufacturing costs with pass-through savings to our customers, the company relocated its offices to the Houston area.
About The Company
Our ability to synchronize the entire fulfillment cycle brings new meaning to the way in which the business of Process Design and Fabrication is completed. Our Integrated FlowThru Process is the ultimate benefit to our customers: It means that you receive the highest quality product, with the greatest flexibility, at the best rate possible, without exception.
To ensure all or our projects are brought to a successful conclusion, eNPure's policy is to create the project "blueprint" during the proposal process, prior to its commencement. All projects must go through this rigorous analysis and the results are presented to you, our customer, upfront. Our policy of communication demands it.
To ensure that those designs result in cost-effective solutions that conform to our customer's specifications, we control those elements that are essential to success, and outsource the rest to our "partners". This allows us to maintain a close channel of communication while continuously monitoring the progress.
How are we are able to deliver such value?
- Our management team has over 20+ years of experience in the industry.
- We understand the economic implications of design.
- We know how to design process systems cost effectively.
The eNPure business model is based upon establishing fabrication relationships with a few select "partners", insuring a continuous supply of low cost manufacturing capacity. These "partners" are distinguished by the following characteristics:
- Experienced management staffs that know their business well
- Established quality control systems conforming to industry standards such as ASME, ISO 9001, and NEMA
- Lean management structure
- Lower manufacturing overhead
- Strategic East/West locations resulting in lower shipping cost savings
- Lower fabrication costs
- Lower labor rates (25% to 80% lower than expected comparable quality US rates)
- With over 400 installations of equipment under our belts, we know the manufacture of custom equipment
