Melvin Ulteig knew how to light things up. The son of Norwegian immigrant farmers, Mel had the vision to bring electricity to the Upper Midwest. In 1944, he started Ulteig Engineers in the basement of his North Dakota home with his wife and one surveyor.

Since that time, Ulteig has expanded to include 9 locations across the United States, 13 satellite offices, a staff of more than 300 professional engineering consultants and a full range of engineering consultancy solutions. Browse our service offerings:
