"I came to MPR because I really wanted to work on projects where I could make a difference in the world."

50 years

50 Years

In 1964, three men set out to form a company built around technical excellence. Their intent was to perform engineering distinguished for its rigor and effectiveness. The three – Harry Mandil, Bob Panoff and Ted Rockwell – had been instrumental in the U.S. Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program, where their values were forged. MPR is thriving 50 years later; a testimony to their vision, and to the MPR culture that grew around it. MPR employees do more than simply fill roles on projects – we grasp the depth of our customers’ challenges and apply insight honed by experience to develop solutions with lasting impact. Recently, a client referred to MPR as a “peerless engineering company,” a satisfying affirmation of our founders’ objective.

The current times at MPR are exciting. Our business is growing and diversifying, our customers value our contributions more than ever, and our employees continue to grow and strengthen our core. Our projects make a beneficial difference in the world around us. Although our founders have passed on, we are confident they would be proud of MPR. The vision of MPR’s technical excellence, having an important role in our clients’ business success, continues to play out, one project at a time.

Without diminishing the past 50 years, it is future opportunities and potential impacts that really capture the passion of our employees. MPR people love working in industry with colleagues, taking on the latest challenges, and finding better ways to do things. As a result, we expect to make major contributions in energy, infrastructure, and health care solutions – in the U.S. and around the globe – while maintaining and strengthening our core MPR values: Excellence, Leadership, Teamwork, Accountability and Integrity.

We tell prospective employees that MPR is about a career, not just a job, and invite each to join us on our journey of excellence. Each customer and business partner is also part of that journey, and we look forward to traveling it together. Thank you to all who are part of MPR’s family and have helped make a difference: past, present and future.
