Founded in 1986 by its president, Robert Ranson, Progressive Design has grown to become one of the largest privately held multi-discipline engineering firms in central Virginia. Based in Richmond, our company works with clients across the U.S. as well as Europe, Asia and South America. Possessing vast experience and technical expertise, we deliver unparalleled value to customers in the industrial, government and military sectors. Throughout our history, our clients have deemed Progressive Design as the company setting the standard for engineering excellence. We are proud of this recognition, but what does it mean? The science of engineering and design is much more than producing accurate work. It is a process of complex problem solving, research and investigation, conceptual thinking, the accumulation of knowledge, expert technical performance, effective communication, and team building. Engineering and design demands enormous creative ability and the mental discipline to transform creativity into innovation. Progressive Design employees all share a relentless passion for excellence. They take enormous pride in their work and continuously strive to perform beyond client expectation.
