 TROY, Mich., Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Two of the Detroit area's leading engineering firms are merging to form Efficient Technology Services, Inc. (ETS), creating one of the largest simultaneous systems engineering resources serving the automotive industry, both locally and abroad.
 The firms are the Efficient Engineering Company Inc. of Troy, a specialist in manufacturing process engineering and tool design, and Engineering Service Inc. (ESI) of Southfield, which specializes in product engineering, design and simultaneous engineering manufacturing.
 The merger is expected to be completed by Dec. 31, 1993.
 The merger was announced jointly by Robert E. Baer, president, and Carol B. Camiener, treasurer, of Efficient Engineering, and James A. Karchon, president of ESI.
 Karchon will be chairman and chief executive officer of ETS; Baer will be president and chief operating officer; and Camiener will be vice president.
 "By combining resources, we will be unique in the industry," said Karchon. "We will be able to provide our customers with traditional engineering support, as well as engineering project management and advanced computer-aided technology," he explained.
 "We also will be able to offer a broader array of services to better meet our customers' growing needs for technically advanced engineering support, now and into the 21st century," he added.
 "We have developed special methodologies for implementing simultaneous engineering that will achieve shorter cycle times, as well as faster prototype and tool delivery," said Baer.
 "These services will position our customers to be more competitive in the global marketplace," he observed.
 Both firms have developed proprietary tools and methods unique to the manufacturing community. These include an extensive array of CAD and CAM services on multiple platforms and innovative software conversion techniques.
 The new company will provide rapid prototype parts, tools, dies, plastic molds, and machine design services. These program services serve a broad spectrum of the manufacturing industry with particular expertise in automotive powertrain systems and components.
 ETS serves a global customer base, and currently has program management responsibility for several European customers. Engineering and design data is transmitted electronically to overseas clients, while parts designed and prototyped locally are air-shipped worldwide for evaluation and testing. An example of ETS' technology system has reduced European customers' prototype cycle time as much as 50 percent.
 Headquarters of the new firm will be 130 Town Center Drive, Troy, current location of Efficient Engineering. The offices of ESI, 21556 Telegraph Road, also will be maintained. The combined company will have a staff of over 300 engineers, designers and CAD/CAM operators.
