Custom Material Handling System Provider, SPEC Engineering, Reaches 35 Years In The Industry
SPEC Engineering is proud to announce that 2014 marks its 35th year offering bulk material handling system solutions. SPEC was founded on March 4, 1979 in Springfield, IL as a representative of leading manufacturers of conveying, feeding, dust collection, and process equipment. By the next year, SPEC had evolved into a complete line supplier by providing their first large mixing and ingredient automation project for a multinational confections company in the Chicago Area. Since then, SPEC has been offering custom-designed solutions to the food and specialty chemical, energy, consumer products, and pharmaceutical industries.
As SPEC has grown over the past 3 Ѕ decades, it has continued to improve each year by adding to its experience and capacity. Ten years after opening its doors for business, SPEC moved to Joliet, IL and added complete AutoCAD capabilities, engineering design, and project management services. In 1994, SPEC provided their first custom processing line for a pharmaceutical company overseas in Puerto Rico. And by the turn of the millennium, SPEC had added in-house process automation and controls capabilities.
Now SPEC has delivered process systems and support to customers in over 30 states and 20 countries worldwide. Brian Bernard, president of SPEC, attributes the company's 35 years of success to individuals both inside and outside of the organization. "We would like to thank each of our loyal customers and dedicated employees who are all responsible for helping us reach this special milestone in SPEC's history," said Bernard.
Today, SPEC maintains its small business size and approach to customers. SPEC now operates in two Illinois locations; a main office in Chicago, and an assembly and innovation center in Plainfield. Although the company has seen many changes throughout the years, it has always kept its commitment to customer satisfaction its top-priority. SPEC is proud of the past 35 years of growth and is looking forward to serving the industry for years to come.
