The First 80 Years!

The First 80 Years!

In January of 1933, a new partnership called Headman, Ferguson, and Carollo set up shop in Phoenix Arizona. Then, as now, the economy was not in robust health, and times were hard for the fledgling firm. It was here that our company’s spirit of client dedication, commitment to quality, and the benefits of hard work was born.

Now 80 years, 38 offices, and more than 600 people later, that spirit endures and is demonstrated in the work we do for our clients every day. While no one in the 1930s could have imagined the challenges our clients face today—nutrient removal, sustainability initiatives, water reuse, etc.—our engineers, planners, and scientists strive for the innovation and cost-conscious problem solving methods established by our founding trio.

NarayananI am pleased and proud to be Carollo’s CEO at this exciting milestone in our company’s history. Our company’s exclusive focus on water and wastewater services has made us a leader in the industry, and our engineers and scientists have expanded the universe of treatment technologies and pioneered bold advances in process and operations that help our clients meet today’s needs and tomorrow’s challenges.

As we move into our next 80 years, we honor and commemorate those who have come before us—who have worked so hard to make Carollo Engineers the firm it is today. We understand that for a company like ours to remain vibrant and strong, we must never lose focus on the people we serve—our clients, our communities, and our colleagues. It was this commitment to people helping people that formed the cornerstone of our company in 1933, and it’s a commitment we keep alive today, and in the future.  We look forward to the opportunity to help you and your community in “Working Wonders With Water®.”
