Howard L. Boswell, former CEO and son of David C. Boswell, founder of Boswell Engineering
In 1924, the late David C. Boswell recognized the need for engineering expertise in a world that was expanding and developing at a lightning-fast pace. It was then, in Ridgefield Park, NJ, that he founded Boswell Engineering. His leadership provided the solid foundation upon which the company is built.
Family ownership continued as both of David C. Boswell’s sons – the late Howard L. Boswell, Sr. and David J. Boswell – became the second generation to own and operate the firm, each making his unique contribution toward establishing Boswell as a full-service engineering company. During the early 1980’s, upon his father’s death, the late Howard Boswell, Jr., embarked upon a new and exciting period in the history and growth of Boswell Engineering. The company, presently in its third generation of family ownership and management, is headed by Dr. Stephen T. Boswell who together with his brothers Bruce and Kevin provide the leadership for continuation and expansion of the superb quality of service and high standards of excellence Boswell is known for in the engineering community.

The company’s legacy is further highlighted by Kristen A. Boswell earning the unique distinction of becoming the first fourth-generation licensed Professional Engineer in the State of New Jersey (David C. Boswell, Howard L. Boswell, Stephen T. Boswell, Kristen A. Boswell).
Through the company’s fine history of engineering accomplishments – from a two-man field office concentrating on surveying and civil engineering to a multi-disciplined engineering firm providing the design and construction management of roadways and bridges, and extensive water/wastewater treatment, sanitary, and storm sewerage projects – Boswell continues to play a major role in the structuring of the future for state, county, and local governmental agencies and private sector clients.
