What do you like about doing business in Ohio? The state of Ohio has provided us with a stable, predictable business environment; a university system that produces an ample supply of quality civil engineers; and well organized state and local governments that are willing to invest in the upkeep and improvement of their infrastructure.
Description of business: Northwest Consultants, Inc. was established in 1985 in Toledo, Ohio as a general civil engineering consultant. Over the past 29 years we have expanded by adding offices in Canton, Michigan; Dayton, Ohio; and Indianapolis, Indiana. Our clients include public agencies such as state DOT’s, county engineers, municipalities, airport authorities, universities, and school boards. We specialize in the design of public infrastructure including roads, bridges, waterlines, sewers, airports, and land development.
As an engineering design firm our main resource is our people. Our growth from inception has been accomplished through internal development by hiring all of our engineers straight out of school. As an Ohio-based company we strive to provide our young college graduates with a good in-state employment option. While providing new grads with training and guidance early in their careers, our focus is to develop independent thinkers who, as they grow, will enhance the company’s overall capabilities while also creating unique opportunities to grow their individual careers here. Approximately half of our employees have been at NCI for over 10 years. These employees form the core of our current business practice, while our younger engineers represent an investment in our future here in Ohio.
