This is fascinating work
In 1987 we were two men in a basement, solving difficult technical problems involving highway design and vehicle crashes. Our growth was spurred by our intellectual curiosity; in order to find the proper solution to our clients’ problems we needed technical experts in complementary disciplines. If you trace our growth you will find an intentional progression that gradually broadened our expertise without sacrificing quality or depth.
Today Robson Forensic employs more than ninety full-time experts, plus an additional group of technical consultants who perform forensic work exclusively for us. Our growth has been calculated, deliberate, and intentional, as you would expect from a collection of engineering and scientific minds.
