About Erik

My name is Erik Hergert and I own and operate EPCC Machine Werkz, a home-based problem solving machine shop in beautiful North Idaho.   My specialty is helping engineers and technicians in solving mechanical problems.  EPCC offers a one-on-one personal and friendly service in helping you succeed in your mechanical challenges.  I offer fresh ideas and designs, high quality machine work, fabrication, and a true "out of the box" view to solving problems. 
I have spent the last 38-plus years working in this field, daily for companies and on personal mechanical passions during my free time. 
Most noted of these years:
I spent 25 of them with the Boeing Company.
During this tenure, the last of those 16 Boeing years were spent working proprietary programs running a one man machine and design lab.  I held a Top Secret Clearance with the United States government.
While running this lab within Boeing’s Advanced Development Lab, I was able to help countless engineers and technicians turn their program testing road blocks into workable solutions through my "out of the box" problem solving ability.  Then with my skill and machinery, I fabricated these ideas into working parts or even a complete machine to provide a major element to the program's success. 
Today, EPCC still runs proprietary projects for various customers and I am an approved vendor for Boeing's Research and Development teams. 
As much as I enjoyed my career at Boeing, my inner passion was to move the family back to North Idaho and branch out on my own.  So after 25 years with Boeing, I founded EPCC Machine Werkz. Allow me to be involved in your projects, come up with solutions as needed, and fabricate in true craftsmanship form, a solution that gets the job done!
