“We build world class facilities with design, efficiency, quality, and purpose in mind.”
Crow Engineering Est. 1968
More than 50 years ago, Crow Engineering Co. was founded by Gerald W. Crow, P.E., and specialized in mechanical engineering and planning, primarily for the forest products industry. Our firm was founded on and continues to subscribe to the principles of honesty, hard work, and technical quality.
Bradford Conrad Crow Engineering Co., was formed in 1992 in a merger between Crow Engineering Co. and the structural and civil engineering firm, Bradford and Associates, Inc. (formerly doing business as Dick W. Ebeling, Inc.). Merging these complementary companies was obvious for providing outstanding service to the forest products industry in addition to other industrial and commercial clients.
In August 2016, our company grew stronger as we brought new principals into the fold. We simplified the company name by changing it back to Crow Engineering to reflect our history. Today’s Crow Engineering leadership and key personnel are still on board, bridging the past and the future and continuing to provide quality design for our current and new clients.
HOW WE WORK
Our team uses state-of-the-art tools, technology, and software in our design, analysis, and production work to ensure our designs are functional and cost-effective to construct. Our staff uses design tools including finite element analysis programs, Revit and other BIM technology, as well as AutoCAD. We have a library of standard components we’ve developed since 1989, in addition to the vast library of engineering and design projects from our nearly 50 years of experience.
One of the goals at Crow Engineering is to ensure our staff always provides the most effective engineering assistance for all projects along with individual and personalized attention to our clients’ needs. In pursuing this goal, we develop close working relationships with our clients and consequently enjoy repeat assignments and valued referrals.
OUR CULTURE & OUR TEAM
Many may think of an engineering firm as a bunch of nerds behind some computer screens tinkering on AutoCAD and arguing with each other about whose approach is superior. The Crow Engineering culture is the exact opposite. Because we recognize that our employees are our biggest asset, our leadership team has carefully recruited a highly diverse team of individuals from a mixture of different backgrounds, genders, ages, and expertise.
Our team understands that collaboration is far more productive—and more fun—than a division of minds. We welcome challenging thoughts and new perspectives while working towards a common goal. We strive for our culture to continue tackling bigger and badder challenges, all while promoting trust, ingenuity, and entrepreneurship within our team.
What is our team made of?
Our team members come from all over the place and have a wide array of hobbies. We have millwrights, car enthusiasts, wives, husbands, farmers, outdoors enthusiasts, fencers, brand-new Americans, and many more.
