Industrial Repair in Kernersville, NC
Glen Flaherty & Tom Robinson
Earning a degree in both Electrical Engineering and Philosophy may seem incongruous to most people, but it makes perfect sense to Glenn Flaherty, president and owner of ERD, LTD., Inc. Glenn has employed this unlikely marriage to create a highly successful industrial electronic repair business. Combining his extensive knowledge of electrical concepts and physics with superb critical thinking skills, Glenn has pushed ERD to the forefront of the technical services world. These qualities are essential in the diagnosis and repair of aging legacy electronic equipment for which OEM support and/or documentation no longer exist.
Glenn's newest challenge is the design of a full-service Energy Management organization– utilizing state-of-the-art LED lighting and lighting design in addition to providing power management and cost reduction analysis to modernize aged power infrastructure.
