Terry E. McMillen, Sr. founded McMillen Engineering Inc. in 1977. It was a rather humble beginning as Terry and his wife, Denise, began by converting a portion of the family room in their home into office space. The early years required long days, a lot of work and dedication as the company grew steadily.
They soon realized the need for an office outside of their home, and moved into their first ‘official’ office in Hopwood, Pennsylvania. They stayed at this location for a few years, then moved to the Hopwood Center for more office space. The company’s continual growth led to the construction of a new office building in the Fayette County Business Park on Wayland Smith Drive, just west of Uniontown. It was their 25th year in business and it was a great way to begin the second twenty-five years.
Since 1977, McMillen Engineering Inc. has provided a wide spectrum of civil engineering, but the consistent focus from the first project at Todd Farm until today has been land development. The initial projects were a variety of residential developments followed by commercial/light industrial projects and then large scale retail developments. As the needs and opportunities of society changed, they expanded services to include infrastructure (water and sewer), design of sewage treatment plants, sewerage collection and water distribution systems, structural design, environmental engineering, and traffic engineering.
A large part of their success has been the flexibility to first identify needs and then to prepare ourselves to meet those emerging needs. McMillen Engineering Inc. has been and remains committed to becoming well-versed in changes to legislation, regulations and permitting requirements to provide the most up-to-date conditions to clients.
They firmly believe in giving back to their community and have remained consistent in that effort. They encourage their staff to be involved in their communities and volunteer with local organizations. They believe that the sum of their contributions must exceed their rewards. In 2001 McMillen Engineering Inc. was named “Business of the Year” by the Fayette Chamber of Commerce for “…commitment to the local community and support of the Chamber.”
