Mike and Karan Olson founded Olson Engineering, Inc. in 1998. They decided to start their own company that focused on safety, responsiveness, ethics and quality. The company started small as a Process Control Systems and Capital Project Management Company, providing Instrument and Control Systems Engineering to local industries. By 2000, they added employees, expanded services to include Electrical Engineering and Design, as well as adding other client facilities to the client portfolio.
In 2006, the Olson team relocated to a rented office space in Bridge City, Texas where the business began to grow over the next several years. By 2012, Olson Engineering needed additional office space, which led to a newly built 10,000 square foot building in Bridge City, Texas. True to form, the company continued to grow significantly both in services and in employees, resulting in an additional 4,000 square foot of office space being opened in 2017 at the same location.
In 2019, the company expanded to Mont Belvieu, Texas. Plans are underway for another expansion in Bridge City, Texas in 2020. Olson Engineering, Inc. is now a full-service, multi-discipline engineering company with Professional Engineers in every discipline providing the petrochemical market with both in-office and in-plant services focused on safety, responsiveness, ethics, and quality, the very cornerstones established when the company was first founded in 1998.
