ms consultants is celebrating a major milestone this year – 60 years of business! Established in 1963, ms has become a trusted leader in the architecture, engineering, and planning industries. Throughout our history, ms has provided quality services to both private and public sector clients, helping them reach their goals through innovative solutions, expert advice, and strategic partnerships.


Founded as a family-owned firm by Thomas F. Mosure and Thomas Fok as Mosure-Fok Engineering, ms opened our doors to the public in 1963 in Youngstown, Ohio. At the time of our opening, we specialized as a transportation engineering services provider. Since then, we have grown to cover a wide range of services, including land development, sustainable design, construction, and more.


Since expanding into various multi-discipline different services, we have successfully completed projects in every state in the contiguous United States. In the past decade, we’ve also:


  • Completed 5,500+ projects
  • Continued to offer 400+ different services
  • Completed projects worth more than $5.6 billion in construction costs


We are continuously evolving to meet the needs of our communities and clients; We have been at the leading edge of technology, integrating it into our services to ensure projects are done with the highest quality.


As a family-owned firm, we take great pride in our commitment to excellence and client satisfaction. This core value has been passed down from generation to generation and continues to be at the heart of the company’s operations and culture. At ms, we are a family, from leadership down; Everyone has an important role to play.


Being family-run ensures that every project at ms is treated with care and attention as if it were our own. This personalized approach has allowed us to build long-term relationships with clients who trust us for our expertise.


For the past six decades, we have been able to provide innovative engineering, architecture, and planning solutions to clients across the country, and we continue to do so because of our people. Currently, we are over 400 employees strong and have ten offices located within Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, and West Virginia. We are continuing to grow with the help of our intern program and the implementation of our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion program, which aims to facilitate a more inclusive work environment through multiple employee resource groups.


In 2021, we transitioned to third-generation ownership of the company through the appointment of Monica Mosure to chief administrative officer and Thomas P. Mosure, PE, to chief growth officer. This came after former President and CEO, Thomas E. Mosure, PE, transitioned to his new role as chairman of the board, and Michael D. Kratofil, PE, became ms’ new President. These reflect our commitment to future growth and generational leadership in the future.


We are excited to celebrate our 60-year legacy, and can’t wait to see what the future holds.
