Thompson Engineering was recently inducted into the State of Alabama Engineering Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame recognizes individuals and corporations that have made, and continue to make, significant contributions to the advancement of engineering and technology, and serve as symbols inspiring others to pursue rewarding and challenging careers in all engineering fields. Thompson's impact can be seen across the Southeast, from Tennessee where Thompson helped restore the historic Henley Bridge, to Mobile Bay, where a first-of-a-kind project is solving major erosion problems. Thompson Engineering’s work is on display in projects for Airbus, Austal, Mobile County Public Schools, Alabama State Port Authority, The Nature Conservancy and Departments of Transportation in Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina and Tennessee.
Thompson Engineering was formed in 1953 and quickly became known for its geotechnical expertise. That history still shapes the company today, but Thompson’s legacy now also includes economic development contributions, sustainable design for industrial and commercial development, environmental stewardship and coastal conservation and recovery projects.
