EVALS has placed its roots in the City of Folsom, embroidered with rich history dating back to the Gold Rush, first railroads, and early transmission of electricity. This vibrant community filled with an array of activities has helped EVALS attract talented people to join its team. With a multitude of high tech firms setting up primary or secondary locations, EVALS has joined the ranks of Intel, Micron Technology, Meridian Systems, and L-3 Communications, in the Folsom area.
The Folsom Historic District offers great restaurants, bakeries, pubs, antique shops, and events, that adds another layer of energy and enjoyment to an already energized team. A perfect example of this dates back to our holiday party that concluded with ice skating in the pouring rain. Although, not ideal conditions, it was still a great opportunity for our families and friends to revel in each others company.
Our location has been instrumental in moving forward with strategic partnerships with other businesses and clients alike, forging bonds with SMUD, Wolfpack Solutions, Apple, GoPro, and many more. EVALS is an organization that is cloud based with members and partners all over the world, but finds itself thriving in the community of Folsom.
