Engineering Systems Inc. Breaks Ground on New Office Building

AURORA, IL--(Marketwire - December 14, 2009) - Engineering Systems Inc., a national forensic and consulting engineering company based outside of Chicago, broke ground on their new building in Aurora, IL on Wednesday, December 2, 2009. It will be the new home for the Illinois operations of the company, which currently has 7 other offices across the US.

The new 47,000 square foot office, lab, inspection and testing facility will house about half of the 135 company staff, and is just blocks from where its founders began 23 years ago. It will combine the staff from the Company's current two buildings into one efficient single purpose facility.

"Our goal has always been to get our growing Illinois staff under one roof again," stated Daniel Wojnowski, Ph.D., P.E., Principal, Board member and one of three key Illinois managers leading the move effort. "It just seemed the stars aligned perfectly for us to make this move now."

Dale Alexander, Ph.D., P.E., Director of Materials & Applied Sciences and another key Illinois team leader, added, "this will help us continue to streamline our project activity with our large wide-open inspection area feeding into more intimate technical inspection labs, which then feed into our many specialty labs, such as our microscopy and materials labs."

"We think our new Corporate facility speaks to our commitment to this industry, and adds to the efficiency of operation which can be passed on to our clients," stated Erick Knox, Ph.D., P.E., Director of Biomechanical & Safety Engineering, and the third key member of the Illinois management team working through this task. "It will also add to our other recent improvements in operating efficiency, improved on-site and lab inspection capabilities and client service capabilities in our Georgia, Missouri, Colorado and Florida offices over the past 18 months," concluded Dr. Knox.
