Despite 25 successful years of providing power quality products and solutions to our diverse group of clients, we never sat down as an organization to establish a concrete corporate image. Perhaps this was for the better as we were able to establish our own corporate culture without trying to fit any predetermined ‘mold,’ so to speak.
Having recently realized that a more defined corporate image needed to be communicated to both our current and potential customers, we took the time to closely analyze our business practices and attitudes. The following statements and values are the beginning of a new era for Energy Control Systems, and they provide our stakeholders and ourselves with a basic guideline for what to expect from ECS. It also provides a springboard for which to propel ourselves into the future by associating an image with our name. While power quality has been our industry for over 25 years, our business has always been increasing customer profitability. Through integration of our products and services, we are able to provide power quality solutions which lower overhead costs and increase profitability.
Energy Control Systems is committed to giving back to the communities who make it possible for it to conduct business. ECS management knows that without these people, there is no way to facilitate business and thus it is ECS’ responsibility to ensure that these communities continue to grow and thrive.

Energy Control Systems, founded in June 1987 in by Jeff Edwards, was incorporated as ECS International Inc. in the state of Texas in September of 1988. Edwards is the sole shareholder of ECS International Inc. and the President/CEO of the company.
Its mission is to provide cutting edge power quality solutions to our clients thereby increasing their overall profitability by decreasing overhead costs related to power quality issues. Through our commitment to provide exceptional customer service by emphasizing the integrity, urgency and reliability required to conduct business in today’s world, we strive to create global partnerships which help to perpetuate future business propositions.
During the first ten years in existence, efforts were directed at generating a domestic customer base for the primary product offerings the company provides: power quality and power efficiency equipment and service. During this period of consistent growth the company sales were predominately domestic, with sporadic forays into the international arena.
From 2001 to 2008, the corporation has directed the majority of its energy to growing market share for an international division of the company which has achieved steady growth. In fiscal year 2007 international sales achieved 40 percent of gross product sales and in 2012 they will be more than 50%.
Through the past two and a half decades Energy Control Systems has evolved from a single product sales company to a multifaceted, multinational power quality solutions provider and product integrator.
Though the targeted niche market selected by ECS has evolved since 1987, we remain steadfastly focused on electrical power quality and, more recently, the efficient use of power by commerce and industry.
By utilizing a variety of technologies and products and combining them with 20 years of engineering and application expertise, we can effectively reduce electrical/electronic maintenance costs and improve the efficiency of electricity usage within a facility, thus increasing the overall profitability of our client.
Edwards, 54, is a Texas native and holds a BS in Business Administration from Texas Tech University, 1980. Prior to Energy Control Systems, Edwards founded a telephone interconnect company in Fort Worth. For years the company serviced and sold business telephone systems in the DFW area, acquiring over 200 customers in this short period of time before selling the business to concentrate his energies on the new venture, Energy Control Systems.
ECS understands the importance of standing for what is right, fair and expected in the world’s business environment. We strive to conduct business in an honest, open and visible manner in order to serve our customers, employees and suppliers with the respect they deserve.
ECS realizes that time is money and makes every effort to respond to all inquiries, orders and communication attempts in a timely manner. By providing our stakeholders with immediate responses, we further our business relationships and create lasting partnerships with our customers, employees and stakeholders.
In today’s business world, companies who can’t provide for their customers’ needs on a consistent basis are barely able to survive, let alone thrive. At ECS we are committed to being a business partner that can be relied on for all of our customers’ power quality needs and we will do our best to consistently add value our customers’ business in any way we can. Be it our people or our products, we promise to provide the necessary solutions.
