Corporate Anniversaries 2014: Coffman Engineers

Before John Thielst was the Vice President and Managing Principal for Coffman Engineers’ Honolulu office, he was a client. He found Coffman’s employees walked the talk – developing lasting relationships and striving to exceed client expectations.

Four years ago, when Coffman asked John to leave a 30-plus year career in the oil and gas industry to lead its new Honolulu office, his confidence in the company made the decision easier.

Delivering high-quality, multidiscipline engineering services and focusing on its clients’ success has been at the root of Coffman Engineers’ growth during the past 35 years.  

Incorporated in 1979, Coffman Engineers has grown from a seven-person structural firm focusing on industrial Alaskan clients to what it is today: a multidiscipline engineering firm with more than 260 employees across six offices in Anchorage, Alaska; Honolulu, Hawaii; Seattle and Spokane, Washington; Los Angeles, California; and Hagatna, Guam.

Coffman Engineers’ unique multidiscipline business model offers clients coordinated engineering designs for one or many engineering disciplines throughout a broad range of markets. This flexibility gives clients a one-stop shop for engineering needs. Even when clients hire Coffman Engineers for one service, they receive the benefit of multiple perspectives on the project. This value has ranked Coffman Engineers’ among the nation’s top multidiscipline engineering firms and has strengthened the company’s positive reputation as a great place to work.

Coffman Engineers is fortunate to have been under Dave Coffman’s strong leadership for 35 years. The company achieved record growth last year. The continued growth is attributed to a dedicated leadership team, the company’s geographic diversification and its continued focus on the success of its clients and employees. “We all know Coffman Engineers can only be successful with great clients and employees” states Dave Coffman.
