A FATEFUL PIVOT
ECS (originally Energy Conservation Specialists) was founded as an energy services company in Tampa, Florida in 1993, building a reputation for quality, cost-effective work for a diverse array of clients. While this iteration of the company went dormant in the late-90s, it was purchased, revived, and reoriented towards software engineering in 2001 by Roy Kapani, a government contracting executive.

ECS hit another major turning point in 2018 when the company was acquired by ASGN, Inc., one of the foremost providers of IT and professional services in the technology, digital, engineering, life sciences, and government sectors.
Amidst the turbulence of the pandemic years, the company’s commitment to innovation continued to pay dividends, such as its distributed workforce that allowed its contract work to continue uninterrupted despite the disruption.
Rather than slowing the pace as the company’s achievements piled up, ECS has stepped on the gas in the last couple of years. ECS has taken on the task of migrating the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) software, business workflows, and forms to Microsoft SharePoint Online. The company has leveraged
As ECS celebrates 30 years and our industry moves into a future that is changing faster by the day, two things remain certain: The challenges facing our customers will continue to evolve and require dynamic IT-enabled solutions, and ECS will never stop innovating new ways to solve those challenges and advance those missions.
