EHSI Joins SoundEarth Strategies

EHS-International, Inc. (EHSI) is pleased to announce that our firm has been acquired by SoundEarth Strategies, Inc. (SoundEarth). This new partnership will allow EHSI to expand our service offerings and grow into new market sectors.

EHSI will continue to operate just as we have for the past 23 years. There will be no change in staff or how our company operates. We will operate as a separate entity from SoundEarth and continue to operate as EHS-International, Inc. from our Seattle office.

The biggest change is that with this acquisition EHSI will graduate from the minority disadvantaged program. However, EHSI will continue to be a small business.

We are excited to be part of the SoundEarth family of companies.
