6 Steps to Take Before The Project Starts to Save the Budget and Timeline

IFS Industrial Services

Because of the complexity and rigid requirements of industrial facilities, our clients appreciate the breadth and depth of IFS’ services.

From highly regulated pharmaceutical facilities to chemical production lines and more.

We understand that safety and speed are two critical drivers of all industrial projects.

Safety: Safety and environmental requirements are usually strict and rigorous. We use the same experienced technicians as much as possible for a facility and have the in-house capability for high-purity orbitally welded piping and specialty resin piping.

Speed: Industrial clients often are in a race to get a new process or product to market. They need a reliable, quick timeline and quick response for service issues because downtime means money lost. We spend the time in advance with computerized 3-D and isometric hand drawings to help clients visualize flat engineering designs so it is built right, the first time.

As a true partner, we listen, we strategize, we offer solutions and we deliver responsive service.

A One-Stop Shop: Personal Attention + Depth of Skills

They’re there in a heartbeat, they have 24-hour cars. It’s a one-stop shop. Working with a one-stop shop is the only way to go.” – David Petelik, Huvepharma Inc

Over time, many industrial clients expand IFS’ role to managing nearly every aspect of their facility systems — from HVAC projects and service to plumbing, fire protection, building controls and more. 

Uncommon in the St. Louis and Mid-Missouri markets — IFS’ resources match the largest mechanical firms but with the relationship focus of smaller firms.  

IFS provides personal attention through a central industrial specialist — Jerry or Anthony — who gets to know the facility and keeps as many of the same technicians on projects as possible.

Clients have access to specialized departments and IFS’ engineering team for advanced services and consulting. 

 “IFS has the resources to do what needs to be done and done right,” said Petelik.

“A lot of people want to hit the easy button. What separates IFS from a lot of other contractors is that we spend the time upfront to help our clients visualize the installation to work out any issues. This impacts their bottom line and keeps projects on track, to avoid costly adjustments afterward.”
