Eddie Paul, President & Founder

Eddie Paul is the Founder and President of E.P. Industries, Inc. With over 30 years of engineering experience, Mr. Paul has developed innovative designs in pumps, compressors, engines, optics, electronics, camera movements and housings, hydraulic systems, and animatronics. His diverse background in prototype development and design is unequaled and his knowledge of a wide range of engineering sciences has led to many discoveries. Consequently, Mr. Paul is the holder of several U.S. and international patents. He is also the Principal Investigator who guides and assists a highly qualified team of engineers.

Most of his experience stems from many years of contracting with major aerospace companies, branches of the United States Military, and large corporations in the automotive, industrial, and environmental fields. The portion of Mr. Paul's experience relevant to Circlescan 4D is his association with the Los Angeles film industry. He spent three decades producing and coordinating stunts and special effects for over 100 feature films such as Terminator, E.T., and the underwater IMAX film Search for the Great Shark. Jacques Cousteau and Discovery Channel specials document some of Mr. Paul's most notable work. He developed and manufactured almost every underwater camera and waterproof housing used by the Cousteaus as well as other oceanographic research equipment.

In 1970, Eddie Paul established E.P. Industries, which has become a successful research, development, and prototype manufacturing company. Eddie Paul, can be reached at: eddiepaul@epindustries.com
