Belvidere, IL, November 13, 2003. EPSI (Engineered Pressure Systems, Inc.), received an award on September 12, 2003, in appreciation for its design and installation of eight hydrothermal crystal growing systems, and supporting auxiliary equipment.
NDK Crystal, Inc., a leading manufacturer of quartz crystal electronic components, presented Gary Nelson, Vice President of EPSI, with the Engineering Excellence Award at the new Belvidere, Illinois, facility's grand opening and building dedication. Frederic Brereton, the Mayor of Belvidere, was in attendance among many company representatives from all over the world.
EPSI custom designed the vessels to integrate with NDK's existing synthetic quartz crystals manufacturing operation. The vessels are among the largest to be manufactured.
