Message from the Founder of O’Dell Engineering, a Westwood company

  • Our firm is powered by two related forces. These are top-notch employees and first-class clients. We strive to employ and motivate the best and brightest. We seek out potential clients looking for the best match of their needs and our expertise.

    We believe in having a good name. When all is said and done, all you really have is your name. If we can establish a great work situation where employees want to work, and provide services that clients want and need, everything else seems to fall into place. As Henry Ford once said, ‘You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.’ We work on our reputation every day.”
