EIP was incorporated in 1958, with roots back to 1945 as a soul proprietorship and one line that we still represent today, Peerless Winsmith. Since the beginning our focus has been on Power Transmission and Material Handling. We have always been a driving force in bringing new technologies in these industries to the market. Initially EIP was located in the three southwestern states, California, Arizona, and Nevada. Then in 2000 we opened up our offices in the Northwest when we merged with the Norman Rupp Co., based in Portland OR. Now we actively serve six states plus Hawaii and Alaska.
