Sorenson Engineering

In 2006, Sorenson Engineering celebrated a milestone marking the 50 year anniversary of the company. Today we gratefully acknowledge the wealth of accomplishments achieved by our continuously evolving organization and staff during the preceding half-century. Equally, we are further mindful of our opportunistic position at a turning point for the strategic future vision of our enterprise. This turning point is linked symbolically with the transition to our new company logo from the legacy logo created by my mother, Joyce Sorenson in 1956, when my father, Frank Sorenson, continuing a lifelong passion for creative ingenuity applied to precision machining, acted on his dream to start a small business in which he would be free to fully pursue his ambitions.
