Helping a local business owner reach maximum efficiency

Recently, our team worked with a local farmer in rebuilding his pump and engine to maximize on efficiency. Charlton is a farm owned by Ian Russell. It has been in his family for 100 years and is part of the very fabric of his community. The farm produces organic goods and he is a fourth-generation owner of the business.

Initially, Ian wanted to rebuild his old engine but, once realizing that this wasn’t viable, the conversation turned to a complete engine replacement.

East Coast Service Manager, Jason Davidson, comments;

“I quoted Ian for a new engine from stock and reached out to him to see if he could send his existing pump in order to conduct the swap over. Upon further inspection, we proposed custom building a new pump to go with the engine. Being mindful to keep costs down, our team ensured we repurpose resources where possible. We sent a concept drawing to the client and, once approved, the manufacturing process began.”
