Lee began his journey into the construction industry in 1975 in Chicago, Illinois. Louis and his father worked together at the start. In 1984, Louis opened his own company. With a sense of adventure and an eye on the wide open construc- tion market, in 1991, he headed to Texas. A name change in 2005 resulted in Extreme Power Services (EPS), a full service electrical contracting company. EPS provides a wide range of electrical services for commercial and residential construction across new- build, remodeling, renovation, and design-build. A strong differentiator for EPS has always been their focus on customer satisfaction. A sound electrical infrastructure is essential for safety, productivity, and recreation. With a repeat customer business in excess of 65%, EPS proudly serves Houston and its surrounding areas. EPS specializes in high-voltage (up to 600 volts), generators, and cabling. EPS recently extended its offering to include installation of chargers for electric cars and trucks. The company has always been an early adopter of technology—one of the earliest in the trades to use mobile communications and construction software. As early as 1985, EPS incor- porated electronic estimating software into its work process (before vendor provided solutions). As time moved forward, EPS purchased software solutions from McCormick Systems and On Center Software. The introduction of automation positively influenced the way EPS ran its business. The ability to do more work in less time and at a greater cost savings, allowed EPS to drive more value back to owners and general contractors. Being a leader in the electrical trade also makes EPS more attractive to highly trained electricians—everyone wants to work with a leader.

Whether working on a standard residential remodeling or a large commercial business, EPS provides quality work, on schedule, and at budget.
