ECI was founded in 1977 by three mutual friends, Dr. Charles Beals (chemical engineer), Mr. Charles Mooney (mechanical engineer) and Mr. Alexander Reddeck (instrument and electrical engineer). Locating in Baton Rouge, the three men set out to provide exemplary engineering and planning services to the petroleum, petrochemical and plastics industries, with the desire to provide expertise in conceptual design and to succeed while doing so.
Since our start-up, ECI has grown from servicing only the local Baton Rouge area to providing engineering solutions for clients all over the globe, from offices strategically located in Baton Rouge, LA and La Porte, TX. As a company, ECI continues to work towards maintaining its local and international reputation for project execution and quality.
In 1991, ECI was purchased by Mitsui Engineering and Shipbuilding (MES), and remained a subsidiary until the formation of the ECI Group in 2019. In 2016, ECI completed the acquisition of United Kingdom-based, Simon Carves Engineering, Ltd. Established in 1878, Simon Carves is recognized as the world’s leading specialist engineering contractor for low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA).
