We are very pleased to issue our 2H 2020 EYP MCF newsletter!
Happy Thanksgiving to all of our clients, partners, and friends! We know that it has been a difficult year for so many and hope that better days are ahead with the positive news about vaccines we have seen lately. Our amazing team here at EYPMCF has continued to deliver for our clients during these past 8 months or so and this has meant traveling to customer sites for commissioning work and design meetings that simply can’t be done remotely. We are incredibly thankful to our staff for their tireless effort and dedication to helping our customers achieve their goals during these tough times. We also believe that despite the challenges of Covid-19, our industry and building type is one of the unique sectors that has been least affected. We believe we may actually come out the other side in an even stronger growth position due to remote work, remote learning, e-commerce, and many other areas that have seen their adoption grow 5 years quicker than expected. This should have positive effects for all of us in this growing industry.
In just a few months we will also be marking the 3rd anniversary as a stand-alone firm. We could not be more excited about what we have accomplished in this short time in terms of new customers, exciting projects, and new employees. We have worked for over 70 clients thus far this year and are expanding our reach monthly. We also recently finished the largest single project from a capacity and sq. ft. perspective in our history – dating back to 1997. This could not have been done without the great support and trust of our clients and our team. For this, we are very thankful.
In the spirit of thanks, this month we also celebrate Veteran’s Day. We always want to recognize our veteran workforce, which has continued to grow this year, and for which we make a concerted effort to continue building.
We also will never forget our own John Rickert, a 16-year EYPMCF’r, and beloved colleague, who passed this year, and was a proud Navy veteran himself. Last year we commemorated and honored our veteran staff with a donation to the Gary Sinise Foundation – a very worthy cause that was selected by our veteran workforce.
This year, with John’s passing still fresh on our minds, and the belief we hold that working in the “mission-critical” world is a natural home for retired vets, we have thought that a perfect way to honor the veteran community is to further their transition to civilian life. Thus we are actively exploring working through one of the professional mission-critical or federal engineering organizations (7x24, SAME, etc.) to sponsor a scholarship in John’s name to be awarded to a recent veteran to use in advancing their data center education through one of the many programs cropping up with a focus on engineering and operations in this field. We expect to have this formalized – hopefully by year’s end.
As always, we are excited to share some information on new projects we are working on or have recently completed, as well as some technical information that should be of interest to you all.
Please enjoy the newsletter, and let us know how we can help in any way.
