About Us

This is ESI

In 1979, Mr. Asherian along with his two sons, Philip and Farshad Asherian moved to the United States. The two brothers started working various part-time jobs. Within one year, Mr. Ehsan Asherian got his two sons and son-in-law, Mr. Mike Rad to start the same business that he was running overseas.

E&S International Enterprises, Inc. (ESI) was founded in 1980 as a branch of its parent company "The Ehsan Company", named after its founder Mr. Ehsan Asherian. The concept of ESI originates from Mr. Ehsan Asherian, who started his business in 1948 selling Philips-branded product overseas.
