Our History:

          Dawson Engineering, Inc. evolved as the result of a partnership formed in 1970 between electrical engineer Walter S. Farley, Jr., PE and mechanical engineer John Stratton, PE, to provide electrical and mechanical design services as consulting engineers. After John Stratton left the firm in 1975, Walter Farley, with various mechanical engineering partners and company name changes, continued as a consultant in the electrical/mechanical design field.

          During the 1980ís, Dawson-Farley Lighting Consultants, founded by W. Dawson Farley, emerged as a division of Dawson Engineering, Inc. In the few short years of its existence, before the untimely death of W. Dawson Farley, the company received national awards and publication for its work.

During this same period, Walter S. Farley, Jr. became well known for bringing his extensive electrical expertise into the forensic engineering field.

       In 2001, electrical engineer, Ronald J. Panunto, PE. joined the firm after 31 years service with PECO Energy and 5 years service with Gannett Fleming, Inc. Ron brought to Dawson Engineering his supervision and management experience as well as his electrical engineering expertise in the generation and distribution of power for electric utilities and railroads.

       In 2004 Ron purchased Dawson Engineering from Walter Farley. Thomas Ryan, electronic engineer, and Paul Winthrop, electrical designer, further strengthen the firmís technical base. The companyís professional affiliation with mechanical engineers Richard Hallowell and Russell Campbell were reaffirmed and Ralph Dumack and his son Keith were selected as professional affiliates in the field of structural and civil engineering.

        Today, Dawson Engineering is an organization steeped in tradition and experience, yet revitalized with new initiatives and a mission to become the premier provider of design and forensic engineering services to our clientele.
