In 2018 Mr. Terpstra served as an expert in a case between a cardboard box manufacturer and a conveyor company. The case related to the ability of the supplied conveyor systems to meet expected levels of performance and reliability.
Mr. Terpstra conducted an on-site inspection of the subject conveyor system for the defendant’s council, Finn Dixon & Herling.
After the inspection of the equipment, a report was generated related to potential failure modes, system installation, and system maintenance. The report included a large number of pertinent photos and is being used in settlement negotiations.
This case is still pending.
