Commercial and Industrial

We investigate and analyze losses at both retail and industrial facilities so enterprises have the engineering answers to plan their next steps.

How can EDT help you? 

From production to assembly to shipping, purchase to delivery, there are many systems that make businesses move. Whether responding to a loss incident at a shopping mall or to damage involving industrial equipment, there is a need to understand the course of events that led to the incident. Once a commercial or industrial enterprise is up and running again, the moment is opportune to apply the results of the engineering analysis and develop a plan for loss recurrence prevention at the same facility or at a comparable one.
