Our team of 70+ employees is very dedicated, with 36% of the staff having over ten years of service and 17% over 20 years of service, with our longest-tenured employee currently at 43 years with our team. We continue to grow as we have added six new team members since the start of the pandemic.

Proud to Be A Sustaining Associate
After sponsoring an event in 2016, “Building Bridges”, Barton Associates became a PSPE Sustaining Associate starting in 2017. Later, we used that idea to promote a companywide Bridge Building competition using less than 500 popsicle sticks. The winning Bridge held to a remarkable 667 pounds.

Barton Associates has leveraged the resources shared through the Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers website. Partnering with PSPE supports our company’s technical growth and provides a platform for reaching great talent as we continue to grow our team.

Expanding Our Team in North Carolina
Barton Associates has three offices strategically located across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania: York, State College, and Pittsburgh. We now look to expand our reach even further as we actively seek to grow our presence in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina.
