Heavy Industry

The heavy industry provides employment to millions of people around the world. Due to the massive scale of production, individual facilities may employ tens of thousands of people. In addition, the heavy industry sector produces much of the machinery and tools needed by other sectors of the economy. As demand for energy, construction, mining, and other heavy industry is expected to grow as global populations continue to increase through the 21st century, the future of heavy industry means more stringent environmental regulations and increases in the already significant costs associated with the industry.

Because the heavy industry is already extremely capital-intensive and requires significant investment in equipment, buildings, complex machine tools, and extensive infrastructure, any unexpected problems or disasters in this sector can be devastating with long-reaching impacts.

At Envista, we have a depth of experience managing large forensic investigations following heavy industry incidents involving:

  • Aerospace
  • Chemical production
  • Construction of large buildings and infrastructure
  • Locomotive manufacturing
  • Machine tool building
  • Mining
  • Oil and gas
  • Renewable energy (solar and wind farms)
  • Shipbuilding
  • Steel production

Our teams of experts have decades of experience working across the heavy industry sector as designers, engineers, facility managers, and risk managers. Whether it is damage from a tropical storm, product defects, construction or project delays, or even a cyber-attack to critical network infrastructure, Envista's forensic engineers and experts are partners in your success, providing full-service consulting solutions from on-site failure investigations and evidence inspections all the way to delivering expert testimony, and everything in between.
