Our Story

What does OES stand for?

For starters, we stand for the challenge of “it’s never been done before”. It’s what we excel at every day.

We also stand for the kind of innovation and technology excellence you will have only dreamed before we meet. We stand for design thinking that transforms ideas into quality-tested products our customers can stand behind. And we stand for memories and moments made in the communities we are in as a result of the technologies we bring to life.

How We Got Here

Starting in 1980 we followed a basic strategy that proved successful; connect with emerging companies with market growth opportunities, fill their need for a technology partner and design, produce and support innovative solutions that exceeded expectations and business goals.

It was a strategy that created limitless opportunities for diversity and we quickly became involved in projects that included electrical engineering as well as assembly, installation and service for solutions in various markets and industries. As we engaged with customers around the world and applied our talents to designing innovative electronic and technology applications, our growth and problem solver reputation led to the creation of three diverse yet related divisions.
