Nothing We Can't Handle

Petersen Inc. is a multi-disciplined engineering, design and management firm providing design, fabrication and installation support to companies worldwide.

The Experience You Need

Our Engineering Department is staffed with experts who have over 150 years of combined excellence and experience in their respective fields, including but not limited to: Mechanical Engineer, Manufacturing Engineer, Designers and Process Engineers.


Petersen Inc. extensive 3-D modeling capabilities can create tailored solutions to your design dilemmas.  Complex assemblies are easily developed using these 3-D tools to verify compliance with customer requirements, operating clearances and that no interference conditions exist.  These same parametric 3-D models can be quickly converted to fabrication drawings prior to releasing them to the shop for manufacture.

Using 3-D modeling software, the Petersen Inc. staff provides design engineering, stress analysis, mechanical event simulation, value engineering, project management and construction services to customers in a wide variety of industries.

Our multi-disciplined Design Engineering team uses, but is not limited to, the following state-of-the-art 3-D modeling software for virtual prototyping, FEA simulation, DFMA and validation:

  • SolidWorks Premium
  • SolidWorks Simulation Premium
  • ANSYS Simulation
  • Autodesk Simulation
  • Autodesk Product Design Suite
  • Compress by Codeware
  • NozzlePRO by Codeware
  • Catia
