Our Past

Engineering Excellence since 1978


Business on a Handshake

Family Owned and Operated

Municipal Engineering Services Company was established in 1978 as a new type of civil / sanitary engineering firm that would cater to the communities and local governments of North Carolina. Prior to founding the company, Jimmy D. Woodie held several positions within local government that enabled him to experience the daily responsibilities, concerns, and activities of a municipal employee.  These positions included Supervisor of Water Treatment, County Engineer, and Director of Utilities.  Mr. Woodie has  operated a water treatment plant (and still maintains a Grade A Operator’s License), a wastewater treatment plant (and still maintains a Grade IV Operator’s License) and has been in the field assisting with utilities construction.  This experience has given Mr. Woodie a unique perspective that allows him to approach each project from the viewpoint of both an operator and an engineer.  During his years as a municipal employee, he discovered a need for an engineering company that understood the unique issues facing North Carolina’s municipalities and government agencies.

Business on a Handshake

Mr. Woodie’s vision soon became a reality.

In 1978 he opened an office in Garner, North Carolina which included four employees and offered only civil/sanitary engineering services. The company began to grow and in 1984, he opened a branch office in Boone, North Carolina. The services performed by his firm also grew. Surveying was added with a host of other services soon to come, including leak detection, Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE), funding assistance, grant administration and GIS – to name a few.  Today the firm still operates both offices fully staffed with professionals and ready to serve the needs of our North Carolina communities and local governments.   The firm relies on its foundation as a successful, well-managed enterprise to provide a full range of consistent and reliable services to local governments, State agencies and private corporations.
