“Working with Jim and the Black-Peak team has helped our operations tremendously. After identifying our needs, Black-Peak identified and on boarded 6 contract PLC’s, HMI Programmers at our office location for a 1 year contract for automating our process facility. By providing us with qualified staff, we had minimal downtime for training and we noticed a very quick ramp up, which resulted in completing the project 2 months early for a 295k cost savings. We are in the midst of hiring Black-Peak again to supply additional contract Programmers for a smaller sized project in our office.”
Paulo, Automation Group Leader – Oil & Gas

“After procuring 2 contracts through our sales group I was tasked to bring in PLC programmers with Industrial Network skills. We were installing a complete controls & automation systems which required programming expertise on Rockwell Automation ControlLogix with FactoryTalk HMI for 3 foods process facilities. Our staff was already overbooked and there was potential to lose the project if we could not get resources out within 4 weeks. I had been referred to contact Black-Peak and it certainly paid off, because they supplied some very good people on site in our office within the time frames we needed. After solving some complex issues with the programming work, we landed additional projects with our customer. I’m still amazed at the level of understanding of the skills and talents we needed and the hard work Black-Peak endured to make things happen. We had an option for ongoing support. This was a win-win.”
Kyle, VP of Engineering Systems Integration & Automation

“The fastest turn-around on providing qualified people I have seen, consistently. From the initial meeting to all pre-employment verifications, they are fast and understand the business we’re in. Unlike some companies we have utilized, I felt Black-Peak knew our needs and recommended people we could start quickly. Now, we’re on year 5 with Jim and the Black-Peak team and they continue to approach each project with high standards. With the experienced Programming contract employees they provided, we came in under budget on a few of the projects and have a total savings of $2.7M.”
