EOI & SHIVELY NOW UNIFIED UNDER ONE NAME:
ENVIRONMENTAL OPERATIONS, INC.
In 2009, EOI expanded its capabilities significantly with the acquisition of Shively Geotechnical Inc., which included Shively’s offices in Fairview Heights and Peoria, Ill. EOI decided to keep the Shively name for a time, due to their strong brand identity and highly respected presence in the Illinois market.
Shively provided EOI with a wealth of geotechnical engineering, construction observation, and materials testing experience, including work on some very large projects in the region, such as the expansion of the University of Missouri – St. Louis campus and the extension of MetroLink light rail transportation system into St.
Clair County, Illinois.
The combination of Shively and EOI services has gone very smoothly over the past few years. This gives EOI unmatched capabilities for providing environmental and geotechnical solutions, and has been part of the continued growth of our company, even in these difficult economic conditions. Even more important, it gives us the ability to solve our clients’ often complex challenges like never before.
During this time as the two companies have become one, EOI’s success has continued to grow. I’m pleased to announce that we are now taking the next step together as a unified company and retiring the Shively name. From this date, all geotechnical engineering, construction observation, and materials testing services will be fully integrated under the EOI brand.
As EOI continues to evolve and grow, we are becoming a stronger organization in service to our customers. Our ability to incorporate operational, technical, risk management, legal, financial, and real estate specialists and other partners with stateof-the-art project delivery systems allows EOI to offer a level of experience unmatched in this region.
