Walbridge Process Engineering & Construction (WPE&C) is a full-service EPC firm combining the process engineering capabilities of Process Engineering Associates (PROCESS) with construction expert Walbridge. The unit is based in Greenville, S.C. and has offices in Charlotte, Oak Ridge, Tenn., Philadelphia, and Mobile, Ala.

WPE&C offers fully integrated process engineering, detailed engineering, and construction services to customers in the chemical process industry, as well as the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, specialty chemical, and oil and gas industries. WPE&C has global reach and specializes in providing tailored solutions to process clients looking for a single source partner.

Detailed engineering services are provided through design partners selected to best suit each specific opportunity, based on geography and project needs. This unique approach allows services to be closely tailored to the particular requirements of each assignment, providing the best match of resources to every project.


PROCESS was formed in Oak Ridge, Tenn. in 1996 to provide process design, engineering, and safety services to any and all of the processing industries. Its concept has been to specialize only in process engineering and hire only chemical engineers. PROCESS' personnel are experienced, highly-motivated chemical engineers with track records of significant achievement in the process engineering field.

Walbridge, founded in 1916, has deep bench strength in pre-construction services, virtual design and construction (VDC), estimating, project management and construction. A top industrial and manufacturing constructor, Walbridge is an industry leader in safety and lean construction practices. Its “lessons learned” database is comprised of nearly 4,500 don’t-forget experiences from past projects. In the past five years, Walbridge has offered potential Value Analysis/Value Engineering (VA/VE) generated savings in excess of $1.35 billion to customers, which reside in a proprietary database to support all projects.
