Richard Feuerborn

Jeff Andrews joined as a Principal Engineer and Vice President of FA Engineering in 2011. Jeff brought a strong industrial and design background with experience in environmental engineering and lean processes.

As the company began to grow, FA Engineering’s principals focused on building a company with longevity in the community.

FA Engineering was started after K&F Engineers was dissolved in 2010. K&F Engineers was a consulting engineering firm established in 1983 by Jitendra Kalyani and Richard Feuerborn. The success of K&F was determined by requests for additional services from satisfied clients. The can-do attitude and competence resulted in client loyalty that brought repeat business for many years.

K&F remained a small firm with an average staff of about 13. With their small, but qualified and experienced team, K&F was capable of providing a wide range of services to industrial clients. The industries served include food processing, mining & minerals processing, and fertilizer and chemical plants.

FA Engineering was started in January of 2011 with Richard as the only (and lonely) employee. By the end of that first year, there were six employees.

Jeremy Phelps, a Mechanical Engineer, started with the company in 2012. He worked as an ME and Project Manager for six years, consistently carrying the highest profit margin and project load in the company. In early 2018, Jeremy was offered a position as a Principal and joined the management team. He ushers in the next generation of leaders for FAE employees. Jeremy brings a sense of efficiency and quality to the team, focused on mentorship for up and coming engineers.

Our Values

We value honesty, open minds, teamwork, dedication, tolerance, and laughter. To fulfill our mission, we place our client relationship as our utmost priority. A multi-discipline approach helps us identify issues quickly and resolve them efficiently, keeping your projects on schedule and within budget. Above all else, we value the simple principle of treating all involved in our projects with respect and dignity.

FA Engineering makes an ongoing effort to enhance a work culture. We practice Open Book Management and share all financial information and projections with our employees weekly. We feel that by encouraging our staff to “act like owners” empowers them to act decisively in the field. Clients often note that our employees make decisions quickly and efficiently. Our team is highly motivated, which energizes their dedication to achieving superior results for clients. We take pride in mentoring our drafters, designers, and engineers for long-term continuity of service.

Manifesto for Agile Engineering Services

We are uncovering better ways of developing designs and drawings by doing the work and helping others do the same. Through this work we have come to value:

Individuals and interactions over processes and tools

Working designs and drawings over comprehensive documentation

Customer collaboration over contract negotiation

Responding to change over following a place

Actions over intentions

That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.
