learn more about efficient manufacturing operations todays' world...


​We have two major projects underway in early 2017. Our two-hour presentation related to safe operations for small distilleries is being presented as continuing education for code enforcement officials across New York State, and to distillery owners/operators at the American Distilling Institute annual conference in Baltimore, Md. We are also turning this into an on-line course for continuing education credits for professional engineers. Other courses are in the planning stages.

Separately, we are finalizing a new book titled “What I Learned about Living the Good Life from Engineering” for release in the spring of 2017. It will use various engineering concepts to give advice on dealing with the many challenges that face us daily. 

In June, 2011 Chemical Engineering's website published Mr. Topliff's first article. It discusses the need to stay in touch with folks on the production floor and the valuable information they can provide. Click here to view the article titled:"Pearls of Wisdom: Bring Back the Old Kettle". 

Our second article was published in the November, 2011 issue of Chemical Engineering Progress, titled: "Learn by Wandering Around". It continues this theme and covers each of the twelve guidelines from Management by Walking Around as it applies to an engineer in a manufacturing facility. 

Later articles covered some of the ways local companies are using the challenge of waste disposal to reducing costs, or even revenue stream with some very innovative techniques. Contact us to learn more about recycling, alternate types of packaging, and other best practices.

We made presentations through the American Institute of Chemical Engineering, Industry Week magazine, the American Society of Civil Engineers, and the Mid-Hudson Consulting Engineers Society on improving productivity through waste reduction and waste water treatment options. We chaired sessions for the 2013 & 2014 Process Development Symposium organized through the AIChE.
