EAS Contracting can trace its beginnings back to the first major expansion of DFW Airport
in 1982. That contract was for the addition of the two outside runways along with two new
taxiway bridges to connect the East and West airfields.
Carroll Edwards was the field superintendent for Collier Electric Company at that time and
that is where he first met the Jaquith team of Scott Brunner and Bill Schai. This partnership
of sharing knowledge and experiences has been a tremendous asset to both of our firms.
EAS Contracting was founded in November of 2002, however the entire team had actually
been working together for 15 years at Walker Engineering and Encompass Electrical
Technologies. When EAS opened its doors they had over 75 years of combined airfield
lighting and NAVAIDS installation experience.
