Business Philosophy:

Our goal at Hawkins Engineering is to provide businesses with high value technical services that will increase their bottom-line profitability, meet growth needs and cope effectively with changing business climates and regulatory requirements. As an advocate of “appropriate technology”, Hawkins Engineering utilizes only technologies that fit the customer’s needs, providing a good return on investments, while avoiding “overkill”.

We believe that good communication, maintaining professional integrity, and avoiding conflicts of interest are essential in bringing about successful results. It is our objective to create long-term relationships with our clients by making customer satisfaction the top priority.

Turn-key Facility Design and Project Management:

Because of our unique combination of abilities and expertise in the areas of industrial refrigeration, refrigerated facility design, and post harvest handling requirements, we are able to offer what we call “turn-key” facility design and project management. With this approach Hawkins Engineering would assume complete responsibility for all project design, engineering and management functions from conception through start-up, acting as the “owner’s agent” to see that all aspects are completed on time, within budget and meet or exceed our clients’ expectations.

Advantages of Hawkins Engineering “Turn-key” Approach

  • Lower project cost achieved by placing more importance on the owners’ objectives than the contractor’s profits
  • Organization of a more focused and effective design team
  • Better communication between the owner and the design team means less distraction to the owner’s daily business
  • Better overall project quality and schedule control


Because we work with a variety of clients (some of whom are in competition with others) we fully respect each clients need for confidentiality regarding any sensitive information. Our long-term clients know this and the result is an atmosphere of trust that is critical to a productive business relationship.
