MSA has earned a variety of notable industry accolades. We have been named by the Zweig Group as one of the 2017 “Best Firms to Work For” and continue to climb the Engineering News Record’s Top 500 Design Firms list, ranking No. 310 in 2018—a 17-position rise from the previous year. MSA was also honored to be named Company of the Year for 2018 by the Wisconsin chapter of the Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) Association, an award that recognizes our commitment to being a team-led, employee-focused, engaging and balanced place of work.
