Achieving the impossible has long been what separates PAE from others. PAE manages every part of the O&M process, from designing new engineering systems to installing and operating equipment to training employees. With little or no disruption to a customer's operations, PAE makes a smooth transition from the outgoing project team to the incoming team. Customers often become aware of PAE's presence for the first time when old problems disappear and site conditions improve. PAE's management approach to problem-solving encourages independent thinking within the framework of personal accountability. PAE empowers its employees to think outside the box and with a carefully planned program of managed-decentralization, success is achieved.
