How it all started

Rich Perteet, PE, founded Perteet Engineering, Inc. in 1988. The firm had a modest beginning (that’s an understatement). Our now-spacious offices began as one desk in the back room of a friend’s downtown Everett office. Meetings were a bit cramped, and things in that tiny room became even tighter as Rich hired engineers and support staff. At the same time, he introduced ideas that spread his ingenious and entrepreneurial spirit throughout the company.
