Why Sterling

Our Client Testimonials

Pharmaceuticals Manufacturer

“I’ve used Sterling Engineering for several large strategic projects at plants across the country and I’ve been very pleased with their support.  Their responsiveness to the demands of both internal and external stakeholders, their flexibility to changing priorities and scope of work, and their cross function team approach contributed to greatly to the success of our projects.”

Ultrasonics and Imaging Manufacturer

“Sterling is probably the most sophisticated engineering services company I work with.  They have lots of process in place, lots of revision control, for lack of a better word, but it’s more than that – they keep everything lined up.  They do a good job of program management.  I generally use them for something large that tends to be complex.”

Sr. Human Resources Representative

Specialty Pharmaceutical Company

“We were looking for an Associate Engineer who could be our “go to person” for AutoCAD. The search was quite long, but after a few weeks with Sterling, they were able to provide two candidates for us to select from. Considering the amount of candidates we saw prior to going with Sterling candidates, I was ready to throw in the towel. Once they got involved, I saw strong candidates out there that could make a significant contribution to our organization.”
