Your Relevant Solution: Relevant Industrial’s EPG Solutions and Capabilities

 

To meet the needs of the industrial automation and manufacturing industry, Relevant Industrial supplies best-in-class parts, pieces, services, and solutions. Dave Baxter, Vice President of Business Development, Engineered Solutions at Relevant Industrial, spoke with Tyler Kern about Relevant’s EPG solutions and capabilities.

For Baxter, it all boils down to flexibility. Relevant wants to provide a total solution for a customer and the best overall solution. “From our engineering practice perspective, we can utilize different technologies that we wouldn’t normally have contractual distribution requirements to sell and bring those technologies in,” Baxter said.

All the various industries Relevant works with day in and day out give their engineering teams the exposure and experience to solve any challenge. “Having exposure to all these different industries allows a group like Relevant Industrial, who has these experiences, to leverage different kinds of things that you would think would never fit in another industrial marketplace, but you can leverage that to create a brand-new solution that nobody’s ever even thought about,” Baxter said. “It forces us to get outside of the box.”

Relevant’s deep background in distribution paid off when the pandemic hit, and supply shortages became the norm across all industries. “We were able to go in and look at what are the things that our customers specifically need, and we increased our inventory in a great way,” Baxter said. “We brought in a lot of things that our customers had needed over the last couple of years when supply chains really tightened up.”

An example of Relevant in action is a customer who wanted to build a sizeable bio-gas plant two years ago. While the plant’s location was Minnesota, the engineering occurred in many places. This large dairy plant needed to solve its manure issue. Baxter said Relevant worked through engineering solutions to help automate processes to utilize the fuel capabilities of the generated manure.
