When John C. Pfeiffer, P.E. founded Pfeiffer Engineering Company in 1981, he began a quest for fulfilling a vision which he formulated during many years as a process engineer, project manager and development engineer at Bechtel Corporation, Sperry Rand Corporation and ICI Americas. His experiences inspired him to build a company dedicated to the pursuit of quality service and customer satisfaction.

Since its beginning, Pfeiffer Engineering has adhered to a stringent code of principles that reflect John's sincere commitment to customer satisfaction. We are a team-oriented company, both internally and as working partners with our customers. Working as a team with our customers, we provide thorough planning and foresight to ensure timely completion of projects and a smooth modification or expansion of their facilities with minimum production down time. As a result, our customers receive an installation free of cumbersome changes, costly errors, and last minute "surprises."

Pfeiffer Engineering strives to build a solid relationship with its customers, as we want to service their needs both now and in the future. We realize that our success is measured according to our value-added fulfillment of customer's needs. We won't cease operations until our customers are 100% satisfied with the results. At Pfeiffer Engineering, delivering quality in design is our focus and customer satisfaction is our goal.
