Energy Management & Services Co. (EMS) Becomes EnSiteUSA

Pipeline Engineering Services Company Rebrands To Reflect Growth

Energy Management & Services Co. (EMS), an industry recognized pipeline engineering services company, announced Monday that the company has changed its name to EnSiteUSA.

The name change was instituted to create a more distinctive identity for the company that can be extended across the entire family of companies, including EMS Quality Control, LLC and EMS Land Services, LLC, which will remain as separate entities but be branded collectively as EnSiteUSA.

“We are proud of our significant growth. Our name change reflects that growth and highlights our commitment to further expanding both the reach and range of our services,” says L.A. “Buster” Gray, President of EMS/EnSiteUSA.

Employee count now exceeds 450 professional personnel. This growth is accented by the company’s acquisition by new management in July of 2012. Since that time, the company has opened new offices in Tulsa, OK and Bay City, MI to complement existing offices located in Houston, TX; Lexington, KY; Charleston, WV and Detroit, MI. EnSiteUSA provides services to some of the largest pipeline operating companies in the industry as well as midstream and distribution companies.

The name EnSiteUSA was chosen as a reflection of the services the company offers its clients across North America – serving as the engineering experts in the office and on the job site. The name change characterizes the business’s growth into a leading midsize, full-service pipeline engineering services company. Gray noted that there are no changes in personnel or in the company’s structure as a result of the name change.

The newly-branded EnSiteUSA website launched August 25, 2014.

About EnSiteUSA, formerly Energy Management and Services, Co.

EnSiteUSA is a midsize, full service company providing project management, engineering, design, procurement, survey, GIS, construction management, inspection, and land services to companies in the pipeline transmission, distribution and gathering system businesses. EnSiteUSA’s wide range of proven capabilities includes work on pipelines, production and associated facilities, gas distribution systems, metering and regulating facilities, compression and pumping facilities, terminals, rail and truck loading facilities, and gathering and injection systems.
