Made up of dedicated and passionate individuals who take pride in the details of customer specifications, estimating and system layout design, Talos Engineered Products is thrilled to introduce our department of Estimating Engineers.

With over 6 years of experience with Talos Engineered Products and spending a year with our newest European division, this department is led by J.R. Clemons. “J.R. brings a wealth of Talos’ knowledge into this role, along with years of project management and estimating experience,” says Talos’ Vice President of Engineering, Jathan Richard.

Our estimating team is relied on to utilize the Talos proprietary software, Ichor3D, developing conveyor layouts and drawings that will support the customer needs, while also utilizing their knowledge of Talos products, manufacturing processes and procurement processes to provide quotes and estimates for our full array of products.

“I have been with Talos for over 7 years now, and recently made the move to the estimating team as department manager,” says Clemons. “It’s a perfect fit for me and it has been a pleasure working with the team thus far. I am thrilled to see what we will accomplish as we continue to grow.”

Delivering Competitive Pricing Without Sacrificing Quality, Convenience or Service

From new product development and engineering, all the way to our purchasing and production teams, Talos Engineered Products is always looking at efficient ways to cut production costs, passing those savings on to our customers, while also maintaining high quality products that the industry has come to know us by.

“We take the time to understand our customer’s project needs first and foremost,” says Richard. “Once we understand the needs of our customers, we aim to keep solutions streamlined and simple while using the backing of our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and our strong supplier relationships to create a winning approach for the customer.”

Although pricing and quality will always be the top deciding factors for consumers, it is important to note that price and quality are not mutually exclusive. In fact, there is a direct correlation between the two. “The more we understand the customer’s needs, the more positioned we are to create a product to meet that criterion,” says Richard.

Our team’s customer-centric desire to engage and listen to needs, along with a mindset of providing winning and sustainable solutions is only another way we set ourselves apart from our competitors,” says Richard.
