Baisch Engineering Services

Service Beyond Solutions

Baisch is a full-service engineering firm, committed to taking a collaborative approach to the creative process. We deliver innovative solutions that are always on schedule and within budget.

We don’t subscribe to the concept of “Good Enough”. Some believe that perfection is unattainable, but aiming for anything lower is unacceptable. Aiming too high and falling short is far better than aiming too low and achieving only what’s easy. Not only can “Good Enough” thinking lead to uninspired, mediocre results, but it can trickle into the attention given to safety measures, which can lead to accidents. We apply a keen attention to detail to each step of the process.

Our Industry

Pulp & Paper: Our Engineering department began with Pulp and Paper in 1958, and it continues to be our lifeblood. We are known for delivering successful projects to major manufacturers without fail. We are proficient with a wide variety of paper grades and apply current technology across the board for our clients’ needs.

General Industrial: Over the years, we have executed studies and projects for a diverse group of clients. We apply multidisciplinary skills to facility planning, feasibility studies, detailed design, project management, and many sub-specialties.

It’s a great working environment. If I don’t have the answer, I can collaborate with other team members to come up with a solution.
