Stanley Consultants traces its beginnings to 1913, when Central States Engineering launched its practice in Muscatine, Iowa. In 1932, C. Maxwell Stanley joined the two-person firm which was renamed Young and Stanley, Inc. The business grew, and its reach stretched geographically. With rural electrification, state roads and highways, sanitary systems, and running water in demand, Max Stanley pioneered quality service methods for clients. These methods and the unique service practices were recorded in his book, The Consulting Engineer, published in 1961. It became the foremost source book for engineers and others in the consulting industry.
Stanley Engineering Company was nationally recognized and entered the international field in 1956, opening an office in Monrovia, Liberia, in 1957. In 1966, the company name was changed to Stanley Consultants, Inc., to better reflect the growing number of services provided. Client needs exceeded pure engineering. Architects, economists, construction services managers, and planners were among the many new service providers.
Today, Stanley Consultants is a worldwide provider of engineering, environmental, and construction services. Since 1913, the company has successfully completed more than 23,000 engagements in all 50 states, U.S. territories, and in 103 countries. Stanley Consultants now maintains 30 offices worldwide.
