Value-Added Engineering

Improving the reliability of equipment and keeping units operating.

Thorpe finds that many units as originally built are not optimally designed for reliability. This may be due to marginal designs or changes in operations over time. We are capable of evaluating existing systems and based upon current experiences, or anticipated changes in operations, are able to recommend enhancements or complete design changes.

Our engineers take time to explain to customers the options available, the technical aspects, as well as cost and schedule impacts. Thorpe’s goal is to improve the reliability and performance of the equipment. The result is fewer repairs, lower maintenance cost and extended run times which increase customers’ profits.


In this unprecedented time, Thorpe wants to express its dedication to maintaining a safe and clean workplace for our employees, and consistent service for our customers. We must all take action and do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19. To effectively combat this, it’s imperative we unite with our communities and implement procedures that prioritize those around us. 

Thorpe understands the situation is quickly changing, and there is no way to predict what the upcoming weeks or months may look like. We can, however, ensure our continual evaluation of COVID-19 and the alteration of preventative measures as needed. In the end, our goal is to protect our staff and continue to provide services to our customers. For more information, please contact us at (713) 644-1247.
