Back in 1979, Marvin Simpson decided to take his 23 years of experience in the water works industry to start his own business. The company was founded on the goal to provide technical services to water utilities throughout the Midwest. Not only have we improved water accountability and increased revenues throughout the Midwest, but our reach has expanded to all parts of the country. Our exceptional level of professional service and groundbreaking technology have increased revenues, improved water accountability, heightened distribution system performance, and optimized distribution system data.
There’s a reason we set the bar so high when it comes to your expectations of us. It’s because we hold ourselves accountable to the work that we do. When we do our job, it makes your job that much easier.
We operate from a common purpose, doing what is best for the client and the company as a whole, working with mutual trust and collaboration.
Respect is not given, it’s earned. That’s why at M.E. Simpson we believe in being fair and forthright in everything we do.
We understand that there are other companies that do what we do, but because of the high level of work we put forth, there’s a reason we stand out. Our promise to you is exceptional work at a fair price.
