About Us


The Owner: Louis M. Egan II


Prior to starting Egan Brothers Inc. in November of 1999 I started my career in Charleston SC at the Charleston Naval Shipyard in 1985. While at the shipyard I completed the apprenticeship program as a Nuclear Qualified Sheetmetal / Shipfitter Mechanic. I was involved in the repair and refueling process of nuclear powered submarines. In 1993 I was laid off due to base closures and military cutbacks. I then went to work for a manufacturers representative selling process control equipment such as valves, pumps and instrumentation. I called on all major industry in the Carolinas including Power, Pulp and Paper, Chemical, and Textile Mills. Again in 1999 I was laid off due to corporate cutbacks. This led to the inception of Egan Brothers Inc.
