Engineering and Inspection Services
Metairie, Louisiana

"As a young engineer starting a new firm, I have to admit, I wasn’t sure what to expect or where it would lead. What I did know was that honesty and trust were key to developing long term relationships with our clients. Although we are no longer a “mom and pop” operation, these values still hold true today.  As one of our clients recently told us, “EIS doesn’t bill manhours, they build relationships.” That’s not bad feedback for a company with 140 employees and offices in two states providing technical support to clients throughout the country."

– Joe Brinz, Co-Founder & CEO
