About Us

History

Jeffrey Simon, James Simon and Sidney Theo Bertrand founded Coastal Automation Services, Inc. in 2009. They decided to start their own company that focused on Safety, Teamwork, Quality and Integrity. CAS started small as an Automation company providing in-house and in-plant automation services to local industries in the golden triangle area. By 2011, they started adding employees and expanded services to include instrument/electrical engineering and design services. By 2014, they had outgrown their office building so they purchased the current office building (30,000 sq. ft.) which is located at 2295 Delaware Street in Beaumont, TX on four acres. CAS is now a multi-discipline, full-service engineering company with Professional Engineers providing the petrochemical market with both in-house and in-plant services. CAS offers Fully Integrated Engineering Procurement Construction (EPC) Services, including Front End Engineering Design (FEED) studies. CAS is considered one of the preferred top technical companies in the Southeast Texas area.
