On Friday, October 13th, Twining, Inc. culminated the year-long celebration of the firm’s 125th anniversary with a Western-themed party at their flagship laboratory in Long Beach, California. Over the past century and a quarter, Twining has become a leading provider of construction quality control and engineering services statewide and internationally.

The attendees of Twining’s 125th Anniversary Celebration raise a glass at the behest of Chairman Emeritus Butch Twining.

To commemorate the occasion, Twining invited team members, clients, and community representatives to join in the celebration and recognize the hard work and involvement key to the company’s success, not only from the Twining Team, but also from the community and industry colleagues.

Owner & CEO Robert M. Ryan thanked everyone for their contributions to the company’s longevity and success, and stated, “While we have evolved from a small lab in Fresno to a company with more than 300 employees, servicing projects nationwide, we have committed to staying a family business with a reputation for quality and integrity.”

During the event, several awards were given to individuals who had a significant impact on not only Twining’s achievement of 125 years, but also on the industry, and beyond
