When William A. Coskey founded ENGlobal Corp. in 1985, the company was just him and one client.

The energy industry was in the midst of challenging times, but Coskey, an engineer by training, saw long-term potential in offering clients more innovative products and services than they had been receiving.

Fast forward 10 years, Coskey and ENGlobal were doing well. The company had a regular stable of repeat clients who kept it thriving. Despite this, ENGlobal was still a small organization with only a handful of employees. But Coskey still saw the opportunity for growth.

Undeterred, he engineered a self-underwritten IPO, which allowed him to get registered stock out in the public and begin using it to make select acquisitions.

Today, ENGlobal is a recognized, international energy engineering and professional services firm with more than 2,500 employees. The company is focused on innovative, cost-effective solutions for its clients.

Over the past two decades, ENGlobal has expanded into several markets, including petroleum, gas, chemical, power and petrochemical. The company’s projects range from single in-plant assignments to large engineering, procurement and construction management projects. Yet Coskey remains committed to keeping the company imbued with a small, entrepreneurial, family-like business environment.

Recently, the company underwent an internal analysis to assess the underlying drivers behind recent new work awarded to Coskey and his team. This has helped the management team understand current trends affecting the energy industry and prepare to identify new opportunities when they present themselves.
