ELI was originally formed in the early 1990’s by Fred Barber (currently President of the Company). In 2005, the original Company sold to a large national firm, which in turn sold to a larger multi-national in 2011. The management and staff of the Company remained intact throughout all of the ownership changes. In June 2016, a group of local investors, all of whom have utilized ELI for wireline services, negotiated to purchase the Hays and Hutchinson shops. Thus, operation of the Company was returned to Mr. Barber and once again the Company is operated at a local level, with emphasis on customer service, customer appreciation, and completing the job in the most effective way.
