Piping and instrumentation diagrams are developed by process engineers at operating companies and suppliers. P&ID takes its name from these often complex diagrams while factoring in the multinational and multicultural viewpoints to optimize either a business or chemical process. To us, P&IDs represent “idea exchange and innovation.” The P&ID operating stage is “idea development in action.”


That is what we offer our clients — idea development and action to grow and optimize your business and successfully meet your goals. Our clients include established operating companies, engineering companies as well as startup-venture capital groups and suppliers.
