On April 1, 1975, the firm of Anderson Perry & Associates, Inc. (AP) was formed in La Grande, Oregon, as an Oregon Subchapter S Corporation. The firm opened a branch office in Walla Walla, Washington, in 1979. The firm has grown to a full-service civil engineering firm providing nearly 90 family-wage jobs from the two offices.
Although the firm has grown, its primary purpose has remained the same: to provide quality local engineering services to communities, counties, tribes, and state and federal agencies along with private sector clients throughout eastern Oregon and eastern Washington. In its 38-year history, AP has partnered with nearly every city and county in eastern Oregon for the development of water systems, wastewater systems, and transportation projects.
“It has been a great privilege partnering with our clients to design many successful projects throughout the years,” said company co-founder and former president, Howard Perry. “We’re proud of our relationships, many of which date back to our beginning, and we value the client support that has allowed us to grow and provide more family-wage jobs throughout the years.”
