Our story.

With many years of combined engineering and construction experience behind them and a shared desire to make a difference in the telecommunication industry, Geoff Bost, Eric Dickerson, and Matt Fields founded Engineered Tower Solutions in 2012. Ten years later, ETS is a highly respected engineering company, providing business-critical services to tower owners and operators across the nation and internationally.

Our constantly expanding inspection, engineering, and construction teams remain laser-focused on service delivery excellence so that regardless of project size or scope, every customer can expect the highest quality result on time and within budget.

We Can always Do Better
