The Beginning

Realizing a life-long dream of becoming an engineering entrepreneur, John Turner founded Texas Engineering Services in 2015 to provide mechanical and industrial engineering services to Texas clients. We love the profession of engineering and solving problems. Yes, we actually enjoy working the problems at the end of the chapter! We are passionate about building things, solving problems, fixing stuff, and helping our clients in any way possible.

Our Core Values

Integrity is our cornerstone value. C.S. Lewis said: “Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.” You can expect the highest professional ethics from everyone on our team and we simply will not tolerate less.

Tony Hsieh said: “Most innovation comes from outside your industry applied to your own." We are seasoned professionals from diverse backgrounds and come to you with unique and broad perspectives. This puts us in the pole position to propose new and better solutions.

Ash Maurya said: "“Life's too short to build something nobody wants.” Our clients are the reason for our existence. We measure our success not by revenue but by value. If we bring our clients true value, we will never have to be concerned about revenue.
