Our History

U.S. Engineering Company was established in Kansas City in 1893. Though to be fair, our roots run all the way back to 1855 - to a small shop in Cologne, Germany - owned and operated by Gustav Nottberg.

Building on that storied history, today, we are now one of the most experienced, diversified and respected mechanical constructors in the United States. With three locations, we've continued to build on our reputation of providing quality mechanical contracting services and total construction.

Our secret? We've been able to adapt to changing conditions while staying grounded in the fundamental principles that have made us successful. Few firms are able to combine such a distinguished history with the sort of progressive, high-quality performance that defines our company - both as a top mechanical contractor and as a driving force within the communities where we operate.

  • Current total sales volume of $270 million.
  • Ranked in the Top 25 of mechanical firms nationwide.
  • A growing list of industries served.

Long-term stability in the construction industry is rare. Then again, we've never been one to settle for ordinary.
