CHP Installations and Success Stories

Harbec Plastics, founded by Bob Bechtold in 1977, is a custom-injection molder that services customers from a wide range of industries including original equipment manufacturers in the automotive, medical, office products and sporting goods sectors.
Faced with rising energy costs in the 1990s and frequent energy problems like power outages and surges, which had cost the company over fifteen thousand dollars in damaged equipment in one month alone, Bechtold had to make a choice: run more efficiently or pack up and leave New York like many of his industrial neighbors. He chose to stay and in doing so he found a way to thrive. He hired Bruce Keeley of Energy Concepts Engineering and went to work re-vamping his entire facility.
