The purpose of this design is to give the blade sharper angles, making it easier for technicians to find “the sweet spot” during cutting which minimizes time and maximizes precision in the windshield removal process. Made from high-quality steel, our windshield removal blades are put through a special coining process that thins the metal. They are then heat-treated to meet our high standards.

ESC was founded by Don McCurdy in 1972. At its inception, ESC provided specialized, electronically controlled heating and air conditioning equipment with an emphasis on the New England schoolhouse marketplace. In 1976, ESC was an industry pioneer when they partnered with Computer Controls Corporation and began installing Direct Digital Control systems to automate HVAC and lighting equipment in large commercial facilities. These new systems dramatically improved the operating efficiency of buildings which was important to facility owners as the cost of energy began to rise in the late 1970s. In 1977 Don McCurdy’s son, Craig McCurdy joined ESC.
In 1987, ESC became a “Value Added Partner” with Control Systems International (CSI) installing and servicing their product lines for over a decade and a half. In 2003, ESC became partnered with Schneider Electric when Schneider acquired the CSI product line. Since that time, ESC has been one of Schneider Electric’s top sellers of building control products. ESC began offering security products and services in the late ‘90s when existing automation customers needed the Company’s expertise to convert their non Y2K compliant systems.
Over the last decade, ESC has introduced four new product lines, energy solutions, HVAC/mechanical, fire/life safety and audio visual, to compliment the initial building automation and security offerings. An outcome of this expansion has been ESC’s ability to install, service and integrate many different brands and types of systems into a single seamless front-end interface. As a result of focusing on customers’ needs, carefully selecting best of breed technologies and hiring and retaining the most talented staff available, ESC is steadily acquiring new customers and widening its base of repeat customers. These factors have produced consistent year over year growth and a stable foundation to meet the changing needs of its customers.
Since its original formation as a company focused on schools, ESC has become a major player in all building markets including educational, commercial, industrial, healthcare, governmental, distributed sites for utilities, and municipalities. ESC’s clients are mostly based in the New England states and New York. However, they also provide services to some clients on a national basis. To satisfy this diverse and widely distributed client base, ESC has grown to over 150 talented employees, passionately focused on delivering high-quality products and services.

National Auditing Services & Consulting is an energy accounting and auditing firm specializing in utility bill auditing and cost recovery.
N.A.S.C. , will help secure any over payments and reduce future utility (electric, gas, water, sewer, oil, steam) and telecommunication invoices.
In an era of rising operating costs and with utility bills accounting as one of the largest operating expense, if not the largest, why not give it the attention it deserves.
Especially since energy costs can have a significant impact on your company’s profitability.
Most companies examine their bills for obvious errors or noticeable changes from prior months and, if everything looks reasonable, they simply pass them onto their accounting department for payment.
Unfortunately, most company personnel examine their bills using simplified reviews.
But how do you know that your company utility bills are being billed correctly in the first place? Utility company rate structures are fairly complicated, which can lead to potential errors.

The NRWIB’s history dates back to 1962 when the first substantial federal training programs in the postwar period was enacted, Manpower Development Training Act (MDTA).
Starting with MDTA, there have been four main federal workforce development programs. MDTA became the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA), enacted in 1973, which then became the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA).
Major changes were implemented under JTPA, which provided classroom and on-the-job training to low-income and dislocated workers, included service delivery at the level of 640 “service delivery areas,” federal funding allocation first to state governors and then to Private Industry Councils in each of the service delivery areas (unlike CETA, which provided allocations directly to prime sponsors), prohibition of the public service employment component, and a new emphasis on targeted job training and reemployment. JTPA eventually transformed into the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA), which has become what we now know as the Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act.
Throughout all of these iterations, our mission has remained the same. We are business-led, we are business focused, and we aim to create the workforce employers need while offering opportunities for our area jobseekers.

“Company Store Premium Solutions
A new companion for your brand.
Company stores are ideal for businesses who want to provide branded merchandise to their employees, large businesses with multiple branches under the same brand, or businesses who already have branded products in stock and need to move their inventory. Think of it as an e-commerce store for all your promotional needs!
With a company store, you can provide branded merchandise for employee onboarding, as well as add in products that can be used for rewards programs. For example, if your employees need new uniforms, they can log in to the private company store and order as many as they like. Your company store may also be accessible to the public.
Company stores are customizable and a convenient online experience that will set you apart from competitors. Plus, you can also reduce costs by setting up a specific budget or payment plan on your company store. Whether you order in bulk or ship to multiple locations, a company store provides a seamless order process that can’t be beat.”
