Kleinschmidt is a premier provider of engineering, regulatory and ecological services to the Hydroelectric, Renewable Power and Water Resource Markets in the U.S. and Canada. We have a powerful network of geographically and professionally diverse clients and staff across the United States and Canada. We strive for excellent client relationships and to make our client's lives and the global environment better. We lead with integrity. Kleinschmidt is also a financially strong and sustainable organization that creates opportunities for personal and professional growth and leadership. R. Stevens Kleinschmidt, Ph.D., hydraulic engineer and former professor at Harvard University,founded Kleinschmidt in Pittsfield, Maine, in 1966. Dr. Kleinschmidt was respected for his knowledge of hydropower engineering and his practical approach to problem solving. His legacy of expertise in hydropower issues and practical, solution-oriented approaches remain key components of our organization today. Our services have expanded over the years in response to the changing needs of industry coming to work in harmony with the environment. In the 1980s we expanded into environmental and licensing services, and are now nationally known for this expertise, in addition to the engineering skills that have always been a hallmark of the company. In the 1990s, Kleinschmidt recognized the opportunity to expand our client base beyond hydro, and we developed an Ecological Services Group to branch out into new areas. This group has become nationally known for ecosystem assessments, individual habitat and river restoration projects, watershed management, water supply reservoir management, dam removal, fish passage, and impact studies for wetlands. Kleinschmidt, an employee owned company with now more than 140 employees, offers a depth of experience typically found in large organizations, while retaining the project control, communication, response time, flexibility, and personal attention that characterize smaller firms. Our clients' satisfaction can be measured by our long list of clients, many of whom we continue to serve since 1966. We have offices nationwide and have served clients in 44 of the 50 states and in five Canadian provinces.
