engineering and automation



JEA excels in process automation and engineering design. We work exclusively with manufacturing facilities to provide a wide range of services. If your needs call for bidding out a turn-key, outsourced project, we will work with you on developing requirements, if necessary. Our proposals are always detailed, in order to set expectations up front and to reduce surprises later. In fact, it is not uncommon for us to work closely with our customer to develop a robust preliminary design during the proposal phase.

Turn-key Project Delivery

Typical engineering projects include:

  • Automation design and delivery for a new line
  • Converting legacy PLC and HMI code to newer hardware
  • Complete equipment specifications for capital equipment purchase
  • Project engineering for rades management, such as electrical and mechanical
  • Specification and FAT/SAT testing of new equipment

JEA staffs a combination of engineering technical expertise and project management skillsets. Our turn-key project delivery philosophy is: propose as much detail as possible for a fixed price, then meet the budget and schedule.

Throughout the course of the project, our PM will not only manage the project internally, but communicate frequently with customer stakeholders with on-site meetings and pertinent deliverables.

As the project progresses, there are sure to be issues, whether it’s scheduling, resources, budgeting, design changes, or other constraints. JEA prides itself on issue-resolution in these instances.

Embedded Resources

Project work is often temporary by nature. That is why we offer embedded resources on a Time and Materials basis. This allows you to add to your staff on a short-term basis, and not be concerned with all the overhead that comes with a full-time hire. We never charge expenses for local work, so the rate we quote is the rate you will pay. No surprises.

If you need to augment your technical staff, we will work with you to place the person with the proper skillset and personality fit for your site. We offer experienced resources, such as:

  • Automation Engineers
  • Plant Project Engineers
  • Project Managers
  • Validation Engineers and Technical Writers
  • Process Design and Engineers
  • Mechanical Designers
