Firm History

In 1991, Professional Engineers Al Casey, Joe Straub, Ron Mead and Bill Liberto form M/E Engineering, P.C. 
Rather than providing multiple services, the Principals decide to concentrate on what they do best - Mechanical and Electrical Engineering - to maximize value for their clients. The business quickly grows in Rochester and throughout New York State and presently has 150 employees.

M/E expands to Buffalo, New York in 1996 with Liberto overseeing the new office. The office grows to fifteen employees and in 1999, the staff increases to more than 50 when M/E acquires the assets of Buffalo-based engineering firm Wilson, Klaes, Brucker and Worden, P.C. The Buffalo office is now located at 60 Lakefront Boulevard, in downtown Buffalo and has 55 full time employees.

In 1999, Tony Thomas, Cal Puffer, John Dredger, Bruce Knapp and Jim Chatelle become shareholders of M/E Engineering, P.C. and in 2009 they are named Principals in the firm.

M/E moves the Rochester office to 150 North Chestnut Street in Rochester's Cultural District in 2002. Al Casey, president of M/E Engineering, oversees company operations from Rochester and Ron Mead manages the Rochester office. M/E presently employs 65 at our Rochester location.

M/E's Capital District office opens in 2003 in Albany, New York. Joe Straub is the Vice President in charge of the Capital District operation. In March 2011 M/E relocated the Capital District office to 433 State Street in downtown Schenectady, and presently has a full-time staff of 25.

M/E's Syracuse office is added in 2004. The office is located at 441 South Salina Street in downtown Syracuse and houses ME Engineering's Computer Aided Engineering Services (CAES) group.
