Joseph Merlo is founder and CEO of Energy Automation Systems Inc. (EASI).
Joseph Merlo started his energy conservation company in New York more than 30 years ago after a term of service in the U.S. Air Force and success in several sales and marketing positions. Joseph Merlo first product was the predecessor to today’s “EasiLiner,” which saves energy on AC motors and therefore has broad applications. Joseph Merlo engaged engineers to develop additional energy saving technologies and acquired others from inventors and manufacturers until he had developed full systems providing maximum savings by affecting every electrical load typically found in commercial and industrial facilities. Joseph Merlo began installing these custom systems throughout the northeastern U.S..
To meet the growing demand for his energy conservation systems, Joseph Merlo included in his business model an authorized Affiliate network and relocated to Nashville, Tenn. in 1985. Today, Energy Automation Systems Inc. (EASI) supports hundreds of Affiliates in more than 60 countries. The companyâ€™s customers include Fortune 500 companies like General Electric, British Petroleum, ConAgra, Apollo Group, SABIC and Tyson Foods.
