November 2019 saw Mid-South Engineering celebrate 50 years of providing engineering solutions for customers throughout the world.
In 1969, Mid-South was founded by four engineers with a common vision: to be a complete engineering service provider focused on total dedication to the client. The path to their goal was simple: work with good clients, select and train good employees, delegate authority, and allow room for the proper execution of the job.
In 1969, Roy Murphy, Larry Stephens, Jack Copeman and LC Gaither decided to start Mid-South Engineering Company following the acquisition of their employer, Dierks Forests, Inc. of Hot Springs, Arkansas, by Weyerhaeuser.
2006 saw Mid-South Engineering add to its industry reach by bringing CPM Engineering Services of Cary, North Carolina into the group, enabling better service clients in the Eastern United States.
Mid-South expanded again in 2013, adding the talents of D&S Engineering in Millinocket, Maine, to enhance the company’s paper mill and power experience for clients in the Northeast.
Toward the end of 2017, Mid-South became an independently managed, but wholly owned subsidiary of sawmill and plywood mill equipment manufacturer, USNR.
In the third quarter of 2019, Mid-South extended and strengthened its sawmill and pellet mill expertise into Western Canada, the Pacific Northwest, Australia, and New Zealand with the addition of Stolberg Engineering of Richmond, British Columbia.
