Our people

Our people are our greatest strength. Together, we have accumulated more than 175 years of experience in failure analysis, motor vehicle collision analysis and materials engineering. The variety of our experience is rare in the industry. This gives us a REAL advantage in solving the complex and unique puzzles involved in forensic engineering and industrial failure analysis. Below is a brief career outline of our key people.
