E-N-G got its start in 1977 when the founder designed and sold the first Electronic News Gathering vehicle for KTVU-TV in Oakland, California. Soon the company was selling vehicles throughout the country as it became known for building quality vehicles that allowed broadcasters to respond to the increasing need for mobile television news.
Over the years, E-N-G pioneered many engineering and design breakthroughs for the mobile TV News industry, earning a reputation for innovation and creativity. Since then
E-N-G has broadened its product line to include vehicles for mobile laboratory, wireless/cellular infrastructure, communications and other technical applications.
In collaboration with Hewlett-Packard (now Agilent Technologies), E-N-G was the first vehicle manufacturer to install a GC-MS in a mobile laboratory. That design became the basis for the successful MobiLab™ line of mobile laboratories.
Building on its past achievements, E-N-G has become a leader in products for the diverse mobile technology marketplace.
E-N-G Mobile Systems is a wholly-owned subsidiary of PostitiveID Corporation, a life sciences company specializing in biological detection and diagnostics systems.
An advantage over its competitors in the Mobile Laboratory Market is that PositiveID has on-staff engineers and scientists with laboratory design expertise (BSL-1, BLS-2, BLS-3). This adds to E-N-G’s laboratory integration experience and allows the design team to optimize workflow and safety requirements. PositiveID also offers laboratory training for BSL-1 through BSL-3.
