SOLUTION CRITERIA – Customized solutions are what sets EGA apart. Where other competitors in the same space import their materials and some of their products, EGA has remained steadfast in their pursuit of a fully American made product line. This not only enables the best quality goods, but also enables the ability to design and build on-demand and as needed. Case in point:

Case in point:

A valued distributor came to EGA’s design team with a really cool request. The U.S. Coast Guard needed a specialized platform to perform maintenance on their critical fleet of search and rescue helicopters. The Coast Guard’s request came with very specific requirements for this mobile platform to reach delicate instrumentation. The platform had to be durable – many Coast Guard installations are near salty sea waters.
