AM Engineering, Inc. was founded in 1986 by William J. Murchie, P.E. and Arthur W.

The principals are supported by an experienced staff. Employees at all levels are encouraged to attend seminars and classes necessary to stay current in a rapidly changing technical field.

Our size allows us to provide high quality responsive and efficient service to our clients. During the course of the project the client enjoys the advantage of dealing directly with a design team headed by a principal of the company. Direct communications between the client and a company principal typically results in a superior project. This philosophy of quality and service has proved extremely successful. A substantial majority of our clients have completed multiple projects with the firm, and most of our new clients came to us based on our reputation within the community or on the recommendation of a current client.
