BEI was established in 1972 by two of its principals: Drs. Glennon Maples and David Dyer.
These individuals recognized early in their career the need for training leaders to have extremely strong technical expertise with a "hands-on", down-to-earth delivery. BEI quickly became known for its entertaining and informative style of training which continues today. Most everyone at BEI has experience of teaching in major universities and has spent thousands of hours working in industrial/commercial plants, conducting research, and training clients. Over the last several decades, the range of expertise has grown to span the entire spectrum of facility operation to include boilers/steam systems, HVAC, compressed air, electrical systems, industrial water treatment, controls, environmental pollution, indoor air quality, maintenance, and safety.
