Clients

Glidepath Systems

Case Study

The Problem: Glidepath was in need of technical expertise to complete projects across Canada.

The Solution: JWC offered its expertise in ControlLogix and airport baggage handling to support numerous installations this past year.

ADB Safegate

Case Study

The Problem: ADB Safegate (formally Liberty Airport Systems) was struggling with projects not receiving adequate ‘up-front’ engineering. This caused projects to execute poorly and not completed on time.

The Solution: JWC provided the much-needed kick start to the pre-engineering phase, executing engineering drawings, control systems, and even site installations that allowed ADB projects to get completed in a timely fashion.

Everworks

Case Study

The Problem: Everworks was taking on much larger projects than they had in prior years and was struggling to manage the multiple projects that were going on at that time.

The Solution: JWC was asked to come in and get control of the engineering and automation projects, and we introduced new ideas into Everworks that allowed for better project management such as job numbers and communications boards.
