Primera is excited to formally kick off a year-long celebration of the firm’s 30th Anniversary. The company was founded on June 29, 1987 by two eager engineers, Pedro Cevallos-Candau and Michael DeSantiago. They set out to start a firm that stood out from the others in the market, a firm that put people first.
Three decades later, their legacy remains as Primera positions itself for substantial growth in the coming years. We continue to deliver industry-leading expertise with an emphasis on superior client service. What began as a small MEP firm has grown into a full-service engineering design and consulting firm with a National presence. Throughout our 30th year, we intend to celebrate by highlighting the relationships, expertise and solutions that have shaped the firm we are today.
“Our commitment to our staff and our clients remains at the heart of everything we do,” says Erin Inman, Primera’s President and CEO. “Relationships form the foundation for our business. It’s a legacy we’re proud to continue as we move into our next 30 years.”
