Company History & Team Bios
1978 - 1985
The company was first registered with the State of Louisiana in 1978. When I first started, the office was located in my spare bedroom. Up until 1985, much of my work was with Didrikson & Associates and that extra bedroom severed as the workspace for both entities.
On January 1, 1985 I ended my association with Didrikson and have worked solely as DCS Consultants since. When I ended my association with Didrikson, all of my customers remained with me at DCS Consultants. Three of those original locations are still clients.
1985 - 1998
In late 1985, the company moved from that cramped bedroom to an office suite in Gretna, La where we stayed until mid 1988 when we moved to a bigger suite in New Orleans. In 1992, we took over more space at the same location and in 1995 moved to a larger office a few blocks away. During that time, I had various assistants. Stacey officially joined the company on November 25, 1997 and has remained with us ever since.
The work and the space we required continued to grow until we were bursting at the seams.
1999 - 2016
DCS Consultants moved to 212 Grefer Lane, Harvey, LA in December of 1999. We had over 1,600 sq. ft. of office space, almost 2,600 sq. feet of shop space and 1,500 sq. ft. of storage/warehouse.
The office space was divided into 4 offices, a reception area, a storage/electronic repair area, 1 ½ baths and a full kitchen. The shop area had two large bays serviced by three overhead doorways. We had a small machine shop including a metal lathe, milling machine, drill press, hydraulic band saws, welding machines, overhead electric crane, etc.
We also had a mobile office/tool trailer that we take to the job sites within the continental US. It has an office area with copier, printer, computer, etc. in the front and a tool section in the back. There is also room to transport the DCS Consultants golf cart in the trailer; something that I truly appreciated as the years went by.
2016 - Present
We moved from our long term locatiion at 212 Grefer to a nrand new office and shop located at 1821 Commercial Drive, Suite O, Harvey, LA 70058 in the summer of 2016. The new office is 1,500 sq. ft of new construction.
I did the design layout so everything fits us perfectly. The new shop is 1,000 sq ft. It has a gantry crane, metal lathe, milling machine, drill press, woodworking equipment, etc from the old shop. Because of the smaller size (as well as new OSHA rules) I sold both trailers, golf cart, and other items I no longer need.
