Based in San Francisco (at least they used to be). Oh yea, and they don't do much with woodenboats. Otherwise, they are an engineering and design firm of some considerable size and reputation. They have a tendency to hire for the project only and then let you go.

Very big construction company, often operating in remote places, known for their direct approach, shall we say.

That's the company that was formed to build the Hoover dam. Went on to build other big stuff.

Cap Weinberger and Z.Brezinski were the company's representatives in the executive branch, where they did a lot of business.

I believe they're one of the larger privately held firms around.

Yes, Wienberger, Schultz, Brez., Saudi Arabia,etc. Seems they are poised to to follow the troops into Iraq after the dust settles. Will be interesting to see which current members of the board get top Republican jobs in the future. Not surprising, just interesting smile.gif

Seems they are poised to to follow the troops into Iraq after the dust settles They'd like us to believe that they are following.
