To be, or not to be: that is the question: Whether `tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles, and by opposing end them? To die: to sleep. William Shakespeare (partial text from Hamlet 3/1).
Do you remember this from school? There is more to the poem but the first part holds meaning for Environmental Business Specialists. In our case, we have thought over the past year, “To invest or not to invest; that is the question.” And it’s an important question considering today’s economic condition and the light many of our paper clients are experiencing. After much consideration, Mike and I decided that the appropriate course of action for EBS was to leverage our recent success and aggressively invest in the future. Will some consider it outrageous fortune to experience doors that have opened as a result of bankruptcy filings? Perhaps, but our company was built on assisting clients with difficult situations and helping ensure they stay in environmental compliance. Or should we oppose the sea of troubles companies continue to face? For to do so is surely to stand still philosophically as well as technically and start to die.
Consequently, Environmental Business Specialists added five employees with a diverse skill set since mid-August and four additional part time individuals started in 2009. This allows EBS to offer better coverage at some client locations more remote to our Louisiana headquarters. But more importantly it allows EBS to expand our offerings to you. We now have expertise in storm water management, safety training, and bilingual employees in the languages of Spanish, Portuguese, and French for training needs. We will continue expanding our lab capabilities and looking into certification. And further capabilities will be reviewed as this expanded team of experts evaluates marketplace needs. Take a look at our new employees on our website under Staff. We are duly impressed with our staff both personally and professionally.
Thus we may come to you and ask what your needs are. If you see a need in the environmental arena, we want you to challenge us to evaluate its potential. So please call (985-674-0660) or contact us and tell us what environmental holes you think are a potential fit for EBS.
