Highground Services, Inc. is the combination of two successful engineering companies – Maximum Controls, Inc., owned by John Warren, and Industrial Systems Engineering, LLC, owned by James Strozier.  John and James both worked for International Paper Company for over 15 years before leaving to start their own businesses.  Over time, they found themselves working together when one of the companies had more work than it could handle alone.  

In October 2006, while once again working on a project together, they realized a consolidation of their two organizations would have many advantages.  By combining their talents, the newly-formed company could go after larger projects.
