Walter E. Spotts, a native of Berks County, started his own professional practice in 1932, which ultimately became Spotts Engineering Associates, Inc.
In 1967 Lewis J. McCoy, PE opened an individual engineering practice in Wyomissing, PA. Mr. McCoy opened his office after 10 years of experience in sanitary engineering with the Pennsylvania Department of Health and a large consulting firm.
In 1968, Charles H. Stevens, PE, CIH, left industry to become a partner in the firm.
As the story goes . . . it was a simple flip of the coin that determined the order of the firms’ name and the business was incorporated in 1969 as Stevens and McCoy, Inc., With expanded industrial engineering services, the firm grew very strongly, serving the needs of local government and industry.
Stevens and McCoy, Inc. acquired Spotts Engineering Associates, Inc., engineers and surveyors, in 1970 and the firm of Spotts, Stevens and McCoy, Inc. was born.
The new company combined Stevens and McCoy, Inc. and the nearly 40 years of experience of Walter Spotts and his staff of 30. It’s because of this Spotts legacy, that Spotts, Stevens and McCoy, Inc. can trace its roots to 1932.
The reputation of the firm expanded and new services and locations were added. Over the years the firm acquired firms in strategic geographic areas, including the Lehigh Valley Office that was opened in 1974. Today, Spotts, Stevens and McCoy continues to be a family-owned regional engineering, environmental, and surveying firm serving local and global clients. We engineer solutions for a better world.
