Windham Chamber of Commerce Awards - 2014

Windham Chamber of Commerce Awards – 2014

Good evening, I’m Dick Williams, Chairman of the Ashford Economic Development Commission and a member of the Ashford Business Association. On behalf of the commission and the Town of Ashford, I’m proud to present the Ashford Business of the Year Award to Yeagle Technology, Inc. and Brian Savulis, the owner and President.

Yeagle Technology, Inc. (YTI) was founded in 1984 in Ashford. The company’s focus was to provide field service on vacuum equipment. YTI was purchased by Brian in 2005. Under his leadership YTI’s service business has expanded to include customizing of existing vacuum equipment, and the building of new systems.   Sales have also increased fourfold; serving clients across the entire country and employing 12 people.

Even though the bulk of YTI’s business is national — the company and its President, Brian Savulis, are active supporters of the community and businesses in the Town of Ashford.

The Ashford EDC originally helped organize the Ashford Business Association about 10 years ago. However, over time the association became inactive because of changing leadership and lack of direction. Three years ago the Ashford EDC held meetings with local businesses to attempt to revitalize the association. At that time Brian stepped forward to lead the association and became its president.

Under Brian’s leadership the ABA has grown to include over 35 businesses in Ashford and the surrounding towns. He encouraged the association to become actively involved in the community — holding fund raising events that benefited the local Food Bank, the Volunteer Fire Department, the Little League, the PTO, and the town’s 300th Anniversary Committee. Lastly through Brian’s leadership the ABA organized a Business Expo that attracted over 200 attendees. Quite a feat in a small town like Ashford!

Brian, we appreciate your years of service to our community and local businesses. Your gift for organizing and empowering others has made the ABA a vibrant part of the Town of Ashford.   Thank you, Brian, and congratulations.

Hello Brian,

Thanks for the quick help getting our system up and on-line again. Rich has done an excellent job correcting the electrical glitches on our systems here (this time and the previous visit); we here at Harvard CNS are highly impressed with his diagnostic capabilities. Rich is a professional and his competence is appreciated. We usually handle most everything ourselves around here, but since we don’t poke our noses into a 10,000 volt power supply on a daily basis, it was definitely time to call in a specialist, and that is exactly what we got. We will keep you in mind for future help and I will recommend your company whenever the opportunity presents itself.

Thanks again,

Hi Brian,

Just wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was to work with Mr. Reed Howard. The Polycold job went off without a hitch yesterday, and we were able to resume production with no unanticipated delays. Reed is very knowledgeable, resourceful, and always conducts himself in a professional manner.

Hello Brian,

I just wanted to let you know that our rebuilt cryopump is installed and working perfectly.  Dan may have already told you that we are seeing hivac pressures that we haven’t seen since we fired up our virgin machine in your facility:  3.5E-6 Torr.

Dan had our new pump installed very quickly, which allowed time to address some other concerns, and talk about possible fixes to some minor issues with the machine.  This, in my opinion was of equal or greater value to that of the clockwork swap of the pump, and is a testament to Dan’s efficiency and knowledge about our system specifically, and vapor deposition generally.  Frankly, I could not be happier with the outcome of this latest visit of YTI to our facility.  It’s exactly the kind of service and expertise that we rely upon from you.

Dan gave me some hints about some of the innovations that he and others at YTI are working on.  It sounds very exciting.  I wish you well with whatever’s afoot.  I look forward to working with you again in the future.  Take care, and Dan, thanks again for the great work.

Hello Brian,

I wanted to thank you and your crew for putting together the plasma chamber for us.  You really came through for us.  Dave was great too, prompt and professional. 

We’ve run a number of qualification batches through the unit with excellent results.  Thanks again!
