Everybody’s looking for the economy to rebound. There are signs of life here and there, but jobless rates and down markets are still making headlines. One small company, however, is defying the odds. Brownfield Science & Technology, Inc. (formally Brownfield Associates), an environmental consulting company that serves Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, has grown by upwards of 40% in 2011. Revenue is up, and Brownfield is hiring in both their Pennsylvania and New Jersey offices.

So how does a small environmental company thrive in today’s economy?

It’s all about the culture. Brownfield continuously interviews to seek out prospective employees that are not only at the top of their field, but who also “get it”. They have used this phrase for years to describe the integrity, work ethic, and positive attitude that Brownfield people bring to word each day. Vice President John Kollmeier says “Brownfield’s employees are the best and the brightest”, and attests that the “get it” culture is stronger than ever.

Contrary to the growth numbers, Brownfield hasn’t aggressively marketed themselves. In 2011, they enhanced their name to better describe their core services and launched a fresh new website. However, the bulk of their business comes from repeat customers and word of mouth. Kollmeier again attributes this to the quality of the company’s staff. Brownfield consistently ranks in the top 10% in customer service and attitude in industry surveys. Kollmeier says that he is expecting the company to keep growing and adding staff in the coming year as well.

Brownfield Science & Technology was founded in 1999. Since its inception, the company has been committed to the idea that customer service is just as important as technical expertise when providing sustainable environmental solutions. Brownfield offers a wide variety of services in the areas of environmental assessment, remediation, consulting and research.
