Building Our Own History

It all started in Crookston, MN. Richard Widseth, Howard Smith, and Donald Nolting joined forces and formed Widseth Smith Nolting (WSN), an engineering consulting firm, on January 8, 1975. Since then, we’ve transformed into a multi-disciplined company with lots of talented and hard-working employees; each employee brings unique talents and skills to our team. Because of them, we can serve clients of all sizes and industries.
