Who We Are

How It All Began...

Our Background

Founded in 1997, M1 Design and Engineering Services Inc. was started based on the belief that engineers may lose sight of their customer’s requirements and at times over complicate the final solutions. From the start it was our desire to understand the projects from our customer’s perspective, combining this understanding with strong fundamental engineering skills to provide clients with practical, professional, and cost-effective solutions.

M1 has developed into a well-respected engineering and drafting firm providing professional engineering services (mechanical/ structural) and drafting support (fabrication details/ equipment layout).

Our experience obtained from frequently working directly with fabricators, allows us to offer a unique perspective, that results in practical engineering solutions. Many of our engineering competitors get caught up in the analysis and lose sight of the important details and how to effectively communicate these details in the form of well-prepared drawings and reports.

Our Value Proposition

Apply practical engineering skills to Mechanical and Structural Projects and effectively communicate results in the form of well-prepared drawings and specifications.

Our Mission

To provide practical solutions tailored to our individual customer’s requirements.

Our Vision

Understand our customer’s needs and continuously evolve our service to best meet these needs.

Passion | Excellence | Curiosity | Trust
