EA International Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Baltimore-based EA Engineering, Science and Technology Inc., said yesterday that it has established a strategic alliance with Hai Duong Co. Ltd., of Hanoi, Vietnam.

Hai Duong provides a full range of environmental services, including irrigation, environmental design and solid-waste management.

Officials at EA Engineering said the companies will function as partners in Vietnam, providing each other with support on several projects and widening the spectrum for the multinational clients of both firms.

EA International has done work in 30 countries.

"What this does is open up a market for us in a developing country," said Ellen Leinfuss, vice president of marketing and communication for EA Engineering. "Rather than just going in there, planting a flag and looking for more clients, we have local support and a local client base. Our services complement one another."

EA Engineering employs 500 people through a network of more than 20 offices, providing scientific, engineering and economic solutions to corporate and government clients.
