Membership in NACE:  Farwest is very active in NACE International (National Association of Corrosion Engineers). Gordon Rankin, our former President, is a past President of NACE International. Many of our staff members have, at one time or another, provided their time and expertise to train industry personnel at the many NACE International seminars held each year.

Contact Information:  Jim Flake, our VP of Engineering, should be your initial contact at Farwest to discuss your project requirements. Jim can be reached by phone or email during normal working hours. He and his team are responsible for negotiating individual work orders, project schedules, project oversight, and tracking for each of our engineering or technical service projects.

Project Reporting:  At the conclusion of an engineering project, a written report is generated for each phase of the project and submitted to the customer in a timely manner. A copy of each report is maintained on file at Farwest for reference.
