We are an Electrical Distribution and Hardware manufacturer for the Stage and Studio industry.  iQuest has been instrumental to the success of some of our more Critical Rigging Hardware.  They did an excellent job of helping design, test and rate several of our pieces that are used to support, assemble and suspend pipe grids and hardware for our industry.  In addition, iquest has been an excellent resource for other issues that have come up over the past few years.  I would recommend Roark and his staff to anyone who needs engineering help.

Aaron, Studio and Stage Manufacturer


I have worked with iQuest Engineering over the years and have always found them to be very accommodating.  On one particular project, not knowing if this particular task was an expertise of iQuest, they stepped up and delivered to us a workable solution to our problem.  iQuest has always been quick to respond to any need that we might have.  They are a pleasure to work with!

Tim – Aerospace - Analytical and Modification Company


Our company recently worked with iQuest Engineering on our first project together and we fully anticipate there will be others to come.  The levels of detail and diligence performed on this project exceeded our expectations and we are completely satisfied with the results and value from iQuest.  Beyond this project, I have known Roark Baird for more than 25 years and his philosophy has never strayed from “do it right”.  Combining strong theoretical and hands-on engineering expertise with that type of philosophy is a recipe for instilling confidence that your project output will be a success.

Brian – International Fiber Reinforcement Mfg


While I was the CEO of SensorTech Corporation, an advanced materials start-up, iQuest Engineering helped us with the design and development of portable pressure sensor meter.  I was previously familiar with Roark from his contract work for a business unit of Danaher Corporation where I was a Vice President of Sales & Marketing at the time. Roark’s work for us at SensorTech focused on designing the pressure sensor meter case to fit the mechanical and electronic components.

As a start-up we needed someone who had strong 3D CAD skills, the ability to quickly interpret our informal design requirements, and the adaptability to work with a small internal R&D team.
Roark has demonstrated the technical and soft skills to assist in complex design projects for both large multinationals and small entrepreneurial companies.  I strongly recommend Roark and his iQuest Engineering team for your next design project.
