History:

Elwyn E. Steelye and Company is the oldest of STV’s firms. Steelye and Company focused primarily on structural design, but after a few years the company grew to include mechanical and electrical engineering services as it added partners, eventually becoming Steelye Stevenson Value & Knecht.

STV arose from a merger of Voss Engineering and Sanders & Thomas Inc. in 1968. The first major acquisition of the newly formed STV was Steelye Stevenson Value & Knecht.

On August 29th 2001, STV became 100 percent employee owned by converting to a private firm. This decision was reached by unanimous consent from employee and public shareholders. In 2006, STV added Ralph Whitehead Associates to their family. The addition of Ralph Whitehead Associates elevated STV’s consulting, civil, and transportational background.

Currently, STV is consistently ranked among some of the best engineering firms in the world. They placed 36th overall in Engineering News Record’s list of the top 500 Design Firms in the world.
