Bob Adams Press Release

Philadelphia, Pa. – April 8, 2019

Lima Company entered into an agreement with TEDOM a.s. earlier this year to grow and support the cogeneration market within North America.

Lima Company has been serving clients in energy-intensive sectors for over four decades.  These sectors include supermarkets, food processing, hospitality, multi-family, industrial manufacturing, commercial office buildings, universities, municipalities, and healthcare.  The common threads between all these sectors are high energy usage and the quests to save energy and money.

For the past twenty-four months, Lima Company has travelled abroad studying and searching for a manufacturer of cogeneration equipment that can help their high energy usage clients.  After a couple visits to TEDOM in the Czech Republic, Lima Company found the right partner.

Lima Company has engaged with TEDOM a.s. to sell, market, service and support TEDOM products within the North American market.  Plans are well underway to build a fully operational training center located within the Lima Company Headquarters, abutting Interstate 95, fifteen minutes north of Center City Philadelphia. This training center will be open to engineers, energy companies, real estate management companies, facility owners and managers.  It will serve as a place for industry professionals to meet and train their groups. “We are excited to open our doors and train our partners, clients and friends on systems that have proven themselves around the world.”  states Bob Lima- Founder and President of Lima Company. “We have listened closely to our clients and feel this may be the answer to their quests for saving energy and money.”   

These two companies have parallel views when it comes to client care.  Trust and accountability are at the top of their lists. “Building trust with our clients is the key to success,” says Michael Jewell – TEDOM Area Sales Director (Canada/USA). “We become a lifelong partner with our clients, and we take this responsibility very seriously. With Lima Company onboard, their teams will provide an all-encompassing package of economic feasibility studies, design engineering, installation, maintenance and performance monitoring. Together, we will be accountable to exceed our client’s expectations.”
