Exhibit Description

LORD Corporation designs and manufactures multiple vibration isolators and shock dampers for use in downhole fracking drills. Currently, LORD is sending their product offsite to undergo necessary testing. Ideally, LORD would like to have more control over the testing process by bringing the testing in-house. This means easy access to an onsite testing facility which will simulate the environment that the vibration isolators would experience downhole. Our team has been tasked with creating a feasibility study to ensure that a testing facility for LORD's vibration isolators could be feasible.
