I have had the pleasure of working closely with David Long, P.Eng., of Northstar Engineering & Technologies Ltd. recently for a high profile Pre-Start Health and Safety review to satisfy Ontario Regulation 851 for Industrial Establishments.The interaction with David on a personal level, which includes client response, professionalism, and his ability to consider many facets of the project has been excellent and very refreshing. The report provided by Northstar was detailed, logical, and relevant and served our needs as well as our client’s needs. Their dedication to engineering excellence was clearly evident.I would not hesitate to recommend Northstar Engineering & Technologies Ltd. for engineering services.
I am writing today in support of David Long and the work he and his company have completed for me over the last several years. Since 2007, Northstar has taken on design projects ranging from Kitchen cabinet door pant lines to Aggregate mixing stations. They excel in providing conceptual design, detailed drawings for fabrication, site review, pre-start safety review, final reviews and various other project management functions. These projects have been completed in the $500K CAD range (including capital), and have touched on all aspects of mechanical, structural and electrical design.David has helped to provide turnkey solutions to problems my organizations have faced. As many organizations no longer have internal engineering support; he has become a key resource for us, one that I also rely on to provide actual help in developing ideas to solve those very problems. He is familiar with relevant technologies, has access to all required engineering disciplines, and is resourceful. Individually, David is passionate about engineering and how he can push his organization further in the pursuit of best practices and new technologies. But most importantly, David is trustworthy, capable and a good communicator.
We have found them knowledgeable and professional with an openness to tailor a solution to our company needs. I would not hesitate to use them in the future and recommend there services to others.
David has very strong professional ethics as shown when dealing with issues arising with customers, suppliers and management.
I appreciate the very thorough job you have done, and your patience in reconciling the collection of personalities you have encountered on this job.
