In 2013, the leadership of Evergreen transitioned to its current owners.
Evergreen Engineering, Inc. was incorporated in 1985 with headquarters in Eugene, Oregon. We originally served mainly the forest products industries (wood products and pulp & paper) that used to be predominant in the Pacific Northwest.

In 2016, Evergreen opened an office in Atlanta, Georgia to better serve clients in the southeastern United States.

As early as 1986, Evergreen began to diversify into other industries, including metals (steel and titanium) and chemicals (adhesives). This diversification continued over the next few years into power and energy systems, especially as related to utilities for industrial plants.

Evergreen has always striven to anticipate new technologies and industrial trends, and to be prepared with the tools and expertise to meet these challenges. Evergreen initiated its own research of alternative emission control technologies to be prepared to offer industrial clients the best technical solutions.

Services

Evergreen specializes in mechanical, civil/structural, chemical, environmental, and electrical engineering. Our services encompass all project phases from planning through construction, including scheduling, feasibility studies, preliminary engineering, capital estimates, detail engineering, process design, environmental permitting, purchasing, commissioning and start-up assistance, and project management.

Evergreen’s experience includes complete greenfield industrial facilities with site development, buildings, foundation design, machinery selection, steel structures, environmental permitting, emissions controls, material handling systems, boilers, piping, power distribution, programming and controls. In addition, many smaller projects include maintenance and modernization of existing equipment.

Staff

Our engineers, process specialists, technical designers, and support staff have the experience and creativity to provide our clients with innovative engineering solutions and cost-effective designs for both large and small projects. Evergreen has a total staff of more than 80 full-time employees, most of whom are registered, degreed engineers, designers, and draftsmen. If required by the demands of a project, we can quickly add qualified personnel to our staff from our network of proven engineers and designers.

Projects

Evergreen has successfully completed design engineering for projects valued from a few thousand dollars to more than $100 million. Examples include a $250 million greenfield high-density fiber board plant for Swiss-Krono in South Carolina; a new $130 million cross-laminated timber facility for Katerra in Spokane Valley, Washington; a $150 million LVL plant in Russia for MLT, a $15 million woodyard modification for Mead Paper in Michigan, a $60 million biomass-fired electricity generating plant in Arizona, and complete detail engineering for a $380 million rice straw MDF facility in California. We also partner with other contractors for EPC arrangements, such as the $2 million tank farm addition project for Suterra in Bend, Oregon.

We have also provided staff augmentation at multiple pulp & paper facilities in the Pacific Northwest and have completed “cold weather” projects in Alaska, Maine, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Russia, all of which required special designs for their civil, structural, and mechanical elements.
