Last month EPG was featured in an article in Engineering Minnesota, a regional magazine focused on professional engineers and the industries they serve. Below is an excerpt from the article and a link to read the entire article.

Thanks to Jim Meusey for spending some time with our staff and sharing his thoughts.

The growth developed in part as a result of working relationships the company has established through the years with engineering firms that are now operating on a national and international basis. Foreign work ranges from Canada and Mexico to the Middle East, India and the Far East.

"I guess you can say our world is becoming smaller . . . or larger," joked Chris Riddle, an EPG applications engineer. "But it has certainly changed..."
