PENTA’s Mechanical Engineering Design Team consists of experienced designers with old school know-how. Many have dedicated their entire working careers to heavy and light industrial plant and mine design. These experienced engineers work as a team with our energetic, tech savvy designers to create innovative, durable, cost-effective, & cohesive designs.

PENTA specializes in new plant design as well as the modification of existing facilities. Operational efficiency, employee safety, ease of maintenance, and constructability are always top of mind when we design projects. Our Mechanical Engineering Design Team has over 30 years of experience working on diverse industrial projects such as materials handling, dust collection, packaging, piping, conveying, process, and air pollution control.
