St. Louis-based Cambridge Engineering, which makes energy-efficient, high-temperature, heating and ventilation gas-fired space heating and ventilation equipment, has a strong focus on industrial space heating retrofits that has spurred an expansion of its employee base, including the addition of two engineers who have re-joined the company.
Bill Meyer had worked at Cambridge for 15 years, then spent 12 years at CEnergy, an energy services company that specializes in energy reduction for industrial facilities. He returned to Cambridge earlier in 2017 as an application engineer. Tyler Murphy also came back to the company after spending five years at CEnergy. He is now a design engineer at Cambridge.
While at CEnergy, both Meyer and Murphy kept a close connection with Cambridge. Their work focused on HVAC system design work for large industrial plants, including heat loads, energy use analysis, heater selection and placement, heater installation details, and gas pipe sizing and routing. They routinely specified Cambridge S-Series heating and ventilation units and M-Series make-up air units for their clients.
Both have experience in preparing feasibility studies on the value of replacing existing plant heating systems with new, high efficiency systems, primarily with Cambridge heaters. Meyer was also a project manager while at CEnergy, working closely with subcontractors and customers to monitor safety performance and installation schedules. He also spearheaded third-party combustion safety reviews and developed safety standards for CEnergy.
“Tyler and Bill bring a wealth of knowledge about the benefits that retrofits can bring to our customers,” said Doug Eisenhart, vice president of sales and marketing at Cambridge. “They are a big asset to our organization and it’s great to have them back at Cambridge.”
Meyer holds a Master’s degree in civil engineering and a Bachelor’s in engineering management from the University of Missouri-Rolla. Murphy has a Bachelor’s degree in industrial technology from Southeast Missouri State University.
Cambridge is an active member of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Buildings Alliance, an initiative of manufacturers and businesses dedicated to reducing energy consumption in commercial spaces by a minimum of 20 percent by the year 2020.
