Bucking the age-old adage of “Go west, young man,” a Bakersfield, California, engineering company is heading east instead.
IES Engineering has just established its Texas presence by opening an office at 306 W. Wall St. in the One Wall Plaza building to offer engineering and design services to oil and gas clients in Midland and beyond.
A grand opening celebration is set for Thursday.
The downtown Midland office will give the company easy access to the production sites the company expects to serve, officials said.
“Our outlook on the need for engineering and construction services, especially in the Permian Basin, is optimistic,” Joe Wilson, the company’s director of operations, told the Reporter-Telegram by email.
“IES Engineering has had great success in offering engineering, programming, and construction services to clients in industries such as food and beverage, manufacturing, and oil and gas, across the United States of America and abroad,” he said.
One of IES’ senior employees will staff the Midland office beginning May 2. The main office in Bakersfield will provide additional support, Wilson said.
