IPS offers customer training for best practices for maintenance and operations. Our instructors customize courses for electricians, HVAC technicians, plumbers, and the OEM equipment they maintain.

Experienced engineering and custom low-volume remanufacturing

IPS engineers for the application. We work with new and legacy equipment, assess failure modes, then design and rebuild to meet the operating requirements.

Our engineers review customer engineering documents and assess equipment design features and designer intent, looking for opportunities for improvement. We can invest more time in design and use higher quality materials for better-than-new results.

IPS remanufactures in lower volumes, with veteran technicians who machine and assemble to tighter tolerances. The end result is improved reliability and performance.

Our in-shop services include:

  • VPI rewinds
  • Reconditioning
  • Rotor and stator restacking
  • Modifications
  • Babbitt bearing repairs

IPS Custom Equipment — Beyond off the shelf solutions

IPS makes a point of rethinking reliability issues. When our customers’ solutions need more than OEM equipment, we turn to Custom Equipment (CE).

CE provides engineering, manufacturing, and fabrication for power distribution equipment. These engineers and technicians work in a 140,000 square foot, vertically integrated manufacturing facility.

The dedicated CE plant is FEDP-approved, ISO 9001:2015 certified by TUV USA, UL-listed, and ETL-listed. It’s where the lack of a commercial solution is an opportunity to fabricate or retrofit.

CE bundles its equipment with pre-sale engineering inspection, installation supervision, and commissioning. It also provides inspections and maintenance services for:

  • Control systems & automation
  • Power distribution centers (PDCs) and power equipment centers (PECs)
  • Outdoor enclosures
  • Switchgear/transformer substations
  • Motor control centers
