EPH Engineering Associates Inc. of Orem, a company providing technical ceramic information and equipment for the electronics industry, has expanded its operation by building adjacent to its current facility at 31 E. 400 South.

The company will use both locations to house the main company and its two subsidiary companies.The $300,000 building was designed by Sandy architect John Wilhite and was built by Furst Construction Co., Salt Lake City. Funding for the project was arranged by Deseret Certified Development Co., a corporation specializing in finding financing for starting or expanding small businesses.

DCDC is the authorized distributor of Small Business Administration 504 loan funds in Utah. Additional money for the project came from West-One Bank.

Organized as a technical ceramics consulting firm in 1970 by Edmond P. Hyatt, it later expanded with the creation of the two subsidiaries, Hyat-Tech International, a technical marketing services company that provides purchasing, importing and brokering services for EPHEA, and Mountain Hy Engineering, which provides engineering design and equipment fabrication services for the company.

The company provides consulting services for companies in the U.S., the People's Republic of China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Europe and Israel for such companies as 3M, General Electric, Motorola Inc., Burroughs Corp. and Coors Porcelain.
