    "The Hammond Group is a specialty chemical manufacturing company based in Hammond, IN. We produce a wide array of chemical products through various manufacturing methodologies at multiple facilities. Our company contracted with Enguard in late 2009 after we unsuccessfully attempted to secure utility sales tax refunds and exemptions on our own. Enguard commenced work on the project immediately, ensuring that all documentation was submitted in time to protect the statutory recovery of our sales tax overpayments during 2006. Enguard's work at our facilities did not disrupt our operations and required minimal time from our employees. They conducted the review in a thorough, professional manner. As a result of Enguard's work, Hammond Group received substantial refunds and became sales tax exempt on purchases from local electric and gas utility companies, as well as from bulk energy suppliers. I strongly endorse Enguard's utility tax service, and would encourage other manufacturing companies to employ their knowledge and expertise."

    Pam Shrader, Accounting and Analysis Manager, The Hammond Group

  • JB Tool, Die, & Engineering, Inc.

    “JB Tool retained Enguard to review the utility sales tax situation for our multi-location, multi-meter specialty machining manufacturing company. The on-site survey was very efficient and did not disrupt our employees or our operations. ENGUARD's work resulted in JB Tool recovering overpaid sales tax for the previous four years, as well as the implementation of exemptions from sales tax that will benefit our company for years to come. I am very pleased with the results and with ENGUARD's professionalism.”

    Greg Beer, Controller, JB Tool, Die, & Engineering, Inc.

  • Sports Licensed Division of the Adidas Group, LLC

    “Sports Licensed Division of the Adidas Group, LLC retained ENGUARD, INC. to analyze our utility usage to qualify us for refunds and exemptions of sales tax paid on utilities used in manufacturing. Our facility consists of large office and manufacturing areas with two electric meters. We found them to be extremely knowledgeable and efficient and were successful in getting the job done for us. As a result of the work being done in a timely manner, we were able to recover 12 months of overpayments that would have otherwise been lost. Without their expertise, I do not believe we would have been able to get the results that they did on our own. Not only did we receive a substantial refund, but we are saving money every month as a result of their work. I would not hesitate to recommend ENGUARD, INC. or use their services again.”

    Crystal Cook, Staff Accountant, Sports Licensed Division of the Adidas Group, LLC

  • Indianapolis Fruit Company

    “In 1995, ENGUARD, INC. successfully petitioned the Indiana Department of Revenue on our behalf, establishing precedent by proving to IDR that our unique processing operation qualified for the utility tax exemption, even though the Department had previously denied our exemption applications.

    "Our company utilized ENGUARD's expertise again in 2007 when the Department of Revenue required a re-validation of our exemption qualifications due to building and meter configuration changes.

    "In both instances, ENGUARD secured significant refunds and future savings for Indianapolis Fruit. We are extremely satisfied with ENGUARD's services and the manner in which they conduct business. I highly recommend ENGUARD to any manufacturing company desirous of lowering their overhead.”

    Gregory P. Corsaro, Chief Financial Officer/General Counsel, Indianapolis Fruit Company

  • Logan's Roadhouse

    "Enguard provided utility sales tax service to all of Logan's Indiana restaurants, resulting in significant refunds of sales tax overpaid in prior years and valuable future tax savings and exemptions. The process did not inconvenience our restaurant employees or patrons, and required very little time from our corporate staff. The services were delivered in a professional, timely manner. I would highly recommend Enguard to any Indiana restaurant desiring to lower their utility expenses."

    Ray Terry, Corporate Tax Manager, Logan's Roadhouse, Inc.

  • Southern Bells, Inc.

    “Enguard has been a very good company to partner with. They have always done a thorough job and fought hard for us to get the refunds we deserve. They have been performing services for us since we had just a few restaurants and continue to provide the same level of service now that we have 73 restaurants. I would highly recommend them to any company.”

    Doug Shaffer, CFO, Southern Bells, Inc. (Taco Bell – KFC)

  • Wendy's

    Enguard renewed three of our restaurants sales tax exemption certificates and obtained new certificates for one location. Enguard is professional, reliable, and timely with their services. We personally have very little time vested in the process but benefit from the savings. We would highly recommend Enguard to anyone wanting to reduce or eliminate their utility sales tax.”

    Sandy Theobald, Owner, Theobald Management, Inc. dba Wendy’s

  • The Coachman Restaurant and Lounge

    “The Coachman Restaurant originally utilized Enguard’s services in 1999. At that time, they performed a utility study of our gas and electric usage. The results determined that we qualified for a 100% refund and exemption on our gas usage and a partial refund and exemption on our electric usage. The original refund encompassed almost 4 years of overpayments.

    Since the original refund, we are tax exempt on our gas bill and Enguard files annually for a refund of a percentage of the tax paid on the electric bill. The process has not been time consuming on our end; we have saved money and have been very satisfied with our relationship.”

    Larry Paynter, Owner, The Coachman Restaurant and Lounge
