Roeslein & Associates recently completed a $4 million expansion to its fabrication facility that will aid in its plans to continue growing and staying diversified after 25 years of providing engineering, fabrication and construction management services. “The 25th anniversary is an important milestone to all of us here at Roeslein because our very first customer is still a customer of ours today,” says John DeMoulin, director of business development and marketing. “We have never lost a customer over a 25-year period and that is something we should all be proud of.” 

Rudi Roeslein founded the St. Louis-based company from a vision of what he wanted to achieve. Roeslein’s dream was put in motion when he attended Saint Louis University on a partial soccer scholarship and had to work to fund the rest. He found a job at a local metal beverage can manufacturer that designed and built its own machinery. After graduating and realizing his dream of becoming a professional soccer player would pay less per year than becoming an engineer, Roeslein decided to stay with that company.  

For P&E Mining Consultants Inc., being small is an advantage that gives it more flexibility, President Eugene Puritch says. “[It] allows us to react quickly to the needs of the clients,” he says.

“People can call me up on a Saturday morning and say they want a conference call, and by lunchtime, I can do it,” Puritch describes, noting it would take much longer for larger firms to set up a call. Prompt and effective communication is everything in this business.

Based in Brampton, Ontario, with a branch office in Vancouver, P&E provides geological and mine engineering consulting reports, resource estimate technical reports, preliminary economic assessments and pre-feasibility studies. Often, Puritch says, people will refer to the company as “a boutique geological and consulting firm.

MJM Electric Cooperative President and CEO Laura Cutler admits that, up until recent years, the organization was not exactly up-to-date when it comes to technology.

Services that customers of large regional electrical distributors likely take for granted – such as the ability to pay a bill with a credit card or online – took the Carlinville, Ill.-based MJM a while to implement for its members. It adopted the ability to process credit and debit card payments only four years ago, long after many of MJM’s peers.
