“Poseer un negocio.” English: “Own a business.” Words of my mother since I was 6 years old. I always knew my work would fill a large part of my life and it does.
I love that.
— Jose Villalobos

From the beginning:

From my early days, I was encouraged to own a business for myself. I always knew I'd do that, however, the type of business developed later. By sixth grade, engineering caught my attention and the seeds of my business idea were born. After college, as I put my dream together, I didn't look as hard at other engineering firms for inspiration. Instead I read books about Southwest Airlines, 3M, GE, and learned about filling a need, standardization and organization of these successful companies. I felt there was a need for an experience-based engineering organization placing priority on client service. I began with corrosion engineering, civil engineering, and industrial waste treatment, which later was fine-tuned to corrosion engineering, specialized in evaluating, rehabilitating and preserving municipal infrastructure.
