In February, Coffman Engineers, a mid-sized, multidiscipline engineering firm, kicks off a series of events celebrating the 35th anniversary of their founding.
In 1979, Dave Coffman founded Coffman Engineers in Bellevue, Washington. The company began as a seven-person structural engineering firm servicing Alaska-based industrial clients and Washington-based architectural clients. Under Dave Coffman’s leadership, the firm experienced continuous expansion of their geographic presence and their engineering service offerings. Today, Coffman Engineers employs more than 260 staff members throughout seven offices and works on multidiscipline engineering projects throughout the world. The company earned $39 million revenue in 2013 and ranked as #262 on the Engineering News Record’s most recent listing of Top 500 Design Firms.
“I am so proud of the position of Coffman Engineers today, 35 years after our humble beginnings. We have an incredible team of engineers and support staff who work tirelessly to provide our clients with collaborative, creative, and innovative engineering solutions. I am also proud of the many long-term client relationships we have in place. This is a sign of Coffman Engineers’ dedication to making our clients successful. We look forward to celebrating this important company milestone with all who have helped make Coffman Engineers prosperous over the years,” said Dave Coffman, who has served as chief executive officer since the company’s inception.
Coffman Engineers can attribute much of their success to the company’s original values and culture established 35 years ago. Leadership has always recognized the importance of designing collaborative and innovative multidiscipline engineering solutions that make clients successful. The company’s strong “work hard, play hard” culture attracts great employees and emphasizes being a good neighbor through active community involvement. This strong culture has resulted in the longevity of many Coffman Engineers’ employees as well as many long-term client relationships, some spanning nearly the entire existence of the company.
The company’s year-long anniversary celebration includes open houses in each of their offices as well as internal and community events. More details will be announced as events approach.
