Dave became the sole shareholder of ESCO Group and Wayne continued working for ESCO as a business advisor, in business development, and as a project manager. Due to the potential of electrical deregulation, Wayne and Dave strategically started a new company called Lambda Lambda Lambda (doing business as ESCO Energy Services, “EESCO”). This company focused on providing electrical engineering services for municipalities with pending potential of the deregulation of the utilities industry in Iowa. This company was led by Wayne Engle and was eventually led by shareholder, Lynn Hamrick. ESCO Energy Services went on to become a leader in NETA testing companies.
