In 1997 our company started as an internet-based consulting firm, environmental-help.com, to provide consulting services across the United States and abroad. Through this firm we gained experience in putting together teams of experts to provide regulatory and technical advice to local companies, and to design pollution control equipment to be built by local firms, which gave birth to our trademark, Global knowledge, local solutions ®.
