LONG BEACH, CALIF. — April 1 marked the 40th anniversary of SCS Engineers (SCS) as a leading environmental consulting and contracting company. Three engineers, Bob Stearns, Tom Conrad and Curt Schmidt, founded SCS in 1970 — three weeks before the first Earth Day and eight months before establishment of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

More than 6,500 public and private sector clients have retained SCS to conduct over 37,000 assignments in support of their environmental protection programs, the company said. The firm serves all levels of government and Fortune 500 manufacturing, mining, oil production, chemical, utilities, defense, and service companies, including those in solid waste, retail, hospitality, real estate, food storage and logistics.

“We are able to mark this milestone only because our loyal clients have entrusted us to address their environmental challenges as if they were our own,” said Jim Walsh, president of SCS.
