Award-Winning Quality

We are nationally recognized for our technical solutions and commitment to performance excellence.

Performance Excellence
Through Continuous Improvement

Performance excellence is a cornerstone of Freese and Nichols’ 125+ years in business, and continuous improvement is our key to excelling in all that we do. Continuous improvement focuses on methodical planning, measuring, analyzing and refining. By instilling accountability and transparency, it empowers all our employees to make their work better, ultimately resulting in exemplary service to our clients.

CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT

Quality is Our Foundation

For more than two decades, our continuous improvement efforts have elevated our service to our clients, our employees and our communities. This deep commitment to quality was validated when we became the first engineering firm to receive the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the highest level of recognition for performance excellence in the United States.

The business practices that led to the Baldrige Award align with our LEADS values and provide the framework for how we operate. Those same practices bring superior results to our clients and employees.
