A different way of doing business Founded in 1998, Invena was different from the beginning. Rather than offering a fixed set of products and services, we simply provided whatever our customers needed most at the time. To this day, if you ask us "What exactly does Invena do?", you are likely to hear "It depends." A customer in South America acquired a used cryogenic plant, but the manufacturer was no longer in business. Invena reverse-engineered the critical processes and helped install and commission the equipment onsite. Invena provides ongoing support both onsite and by phone and remote internet link. When obsolete parts are needed, Invena designs and build them. Several of the their staff struggled with English, so we brought along a fluent interpretor to communicate in Spanish. A big fast-track design project was launched, but the hiring process was pretty slow for a large customer in Houston. So we set up a remote office at the customer's facility and quickly hired and trained a dozen CAD designers and engineers to execute the project. Then we set up another remote office at the manufacturing plant in Tulsa to work with the folks on the shop floor. "It's obsolete, " said the manufacturer. However, the job must go on, so a customer in Canada sent the broken parts to Invena and we designed and built an improved version that replaced the old one. We now offer them over 4, 500 parts through a customized online catalog focused only on the equipment and supplies they need. Our customer had a job to do, and mother nature wasn't cooperating. Rough seas had made work impossible at an offshore platform in West Africa. Invena designed and built state-of-the art equipment that allowed the rig to move smoothly along with the waves, and we installed and trained the operators onsite. Total project from start to finish: 90 days. Today, Invena supports Fortune 50 companies in 27 countries around the world with the same customer focus. You're likely see Matt Wilson, the founder of the company, in his coveralls turning wrenches at a jobsite from time to time. Ask him what Invena does. He'll tell you we do it right.
