RYAN BERTRAM


“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." -Calvin Coolidge

After a 12 year-old Ryan visited the Corvette factory in Bowling Green, Kentucky, he knew he wanted to part of how America makes things. With continued interest in the art and science of manufacturing, Ryan pursued his Bachelors in International Business at Calvin College. After graduating, he realized his dream of working with manufacturing by holding client relations positions throughout the manufacturing industry. At Malisko, Ryan enjoys bringing together the right people for the right job to tackle complex projects, and helping to bring the total solution to the client's plant floor.

Personal Passion
He likes spending time with his family and helping his children to blaze their own trail.

Dream Job
Build houses for Habitat for Humanity

Interesting Fact
He secretly likes the handy-man "fix-it" list his wife gives him every weekend. (Shhh! don't tell her that though!)

OUR APPROACH

ON-SITE PROCESS COMMISSIONING

Once we begin process automation commissioning, we will have already performed an automation solutions site assessment, gained an understanding of your plant, team, and goals, designed your system, chosen solutions and performed all programming configuration. Now, it’s time to take your automated production system and integrate it on-site at your facility.

Now, it’s time to take your automated production system and integrate it on-site at your facility.

FIELD DEVICE CHECKOUT AND TROUBLESHOOTING

Up to this point, all code and HMI screens have been checked in a simulated environment. The first step we do on-site after power-up is check your field devices and verify that the inputs and outputs to and from your devices work as they should. Our checkout methodology runs end-to-end; meaning we physically and visually verify device operation in the field and at the HMI screen. When a device doesn’t work or shows a discrepancy between HMI and field, we work with your electrical, maintenance, and instrumentation technicians to find root cause. We’ve designed and built your system meticulously, and we commission it on-site with the same care.

24/7 ON-SITE SUPPORT

When you work with us at Malisko Engineering, you don’t just get an automation system. You get a team of committed experts who become an extension of your team. After system commissioning, we can provide 24/7, on-site support for your system. We work side-by-side with your operators, and technical support team to ensure the system does what we said it would do. We also understand how important it is to get your manufacturing line producing as quickly as possible. That’s why we finish the jobs on time.

ON-THE-JOB OPERATOR AND ENGINEER TRAINING

During the commissioning process, we’re there with your team as they begin to operate your system. Whether or not you request formal training from our team, we work with your team, right in the control room or out on the floor whenever possible.

When your process first starts up on a new Malisko system, we guide your operators until they get comfortable running it without our support. We let them ‘drive’ while we supervise and are there in case any issues come up. Our goal is to empower your in-house staff to be confident in the control of your operation.

ON-GOING SUPPORT

Once we’ve finished commissioning your system, it’s up and running. At this stage, we’ve performed a site assessment, provided you with a Front End Engineering Design, Detailed Engineering and Design, and integrated your system. But even when your system is fully operational, we don’t just leave you hanging. We can provide you the post-project technical support you need to confidently operate and maintain your system.

INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION FOR RESULTS

In our more than 20 years of helping manufacturers, we’ve intelligently applied automation for hundreds of companies across a wide range of industries. And we’ve earned repeat business from 90 percent of our clients.

Have a question or do you want more output, fewer lost batches and better reports? We can show you how to improve your production and maximize your successes through industrial automation.
