ETi (Environmental Technology, Inc.) manufactures sensors and controls for snow and ice melt systems, heat trace controls and low-pressure dehydrators for microwave waveguides. The company is headquartered in South Bend, Indiana, USA.
ETI was founded in 1967 when it started the production of the first Snow Switch® sensing and control products for commercial deicing in the industry. Having been awarded numerous patents for technologies used in snow and ice detection, condensate and humidity control, ground fault and arc detection, energy management, power distribution, and air pressurization systems, ETI has grown into a trusted name worldwide for environmental sensors and controls that are used in Earth Station Antennas, Telecom towers and waveguide environment.
ETI Network of Companies consists of ETI, ETI-Fab and ETI-Controls. ETI serves customers with three product lines;
- The SnowSwitch-line consists of several sensors that communicate with controllers to offer rain and snow melting applications for residential, commercial and industrial applications.

- The Tracon-line offers a robust line of controllers offering heat trace for pipe and other applications for residential, commercial and industrial applications.
ETi was formed in 1968 by engineer Thaddeus M. Jones. The company was incorporated in 1969 when Jones began producing the first Snow Switch® sensing and control products for commercial deicing. Jones had been awarded over 60 patents for technologies used in snow and ice detection, condensate and humidity control, ground fault and arc detection, energy management, power distribution and air pressurization systems.
In 1994 Environmental Technology, Inc. was renamed ETI.
On February 20th, 2018 Ben and Kerri Crawford acquired ETI. Prior to serve as President of the company, Ben Crawford held positions at Contour Hardening, Inc. and Paulo Heat Treating, Brazing and Metal Finishing and has over twenty-four years of manufacturing experience as a C-Suite Executive of Industrial Operations.
