Exciting career opportunities



At Carlson Engineering, we believe that the path to becoming the best at what you do is FOCUS. For the past 29 years, our mission has been to exclusively serve Food, Beverage and Dairy producers.

As a result, we field the most capable and experienced Engineers available to ensure your success. If you have a problem or a complex project, it’s likely we have solved it before. By keeping our company focused on serving this industry, we generate and retain the resources necessary to tackle your toughest problems.

Whether your project is large or small… with Carlson Engineering, the most talented and experienced team in the industry will be dedicated to your success.


From Concept to Completion, Carlson Engineering delivers turn-key execution to our clients. We routinely tackle large capital engineering projects as a single source provider. To date we have executed a single source engineering project in excess of $40MM. We will design, build, install, automate and commission your projects all under one roof, and with the simplicity of engaging a single provider.

Most of our capabilities are sourced in-house, giving us the flexibility to adjust to a rapidly changing environment. You get added assurance that your projects will be completed on time and on budget.

When you don’t need turn-key execution, Carlson Engineering will engage in any step of your project with the same level of in-house expertise.


Since we’d rather drive for results, and not watch the clock, you get a true partner when you team up with us. We treat our clients as business partners, and understand that our success depends on their success. We always go the extra mile when it’s on the line.

Our client partnerships generate the learning necessary for mutual benefit. For example, our software tools are created using direct input from our clients and our industry. The result: one client voted our software as “best-in-class for Food, Beverage and Dairy producers”, and our software is available to everyone.

If this sounds like the way you want to do business, give us a call.


At Carlson Engineering, we are a valued engineering partner to many of the world’s largest food and beverage companies. We continuously drive best-in-class engineering and automation solutions with a strict focus on value creation and increased productivity. Our clients rely on Carlson Engineering to solve their most challenging problems, with the assurance we will deliver results. We are proud of our track record, and of our long standing relationships with major industry leaders like the ones shown here.

Since 1988, Carlson Engineering has successfully designed and implemented capital engineering projects for some of North America’s largest Food, Beverage and Dairy plants. The company was founded by John Carlson P.E., a 40 year veteran of Food and Dairy plant engineering and process automation. Starting in a garage with one client, Carlson Engineering has grown to occupy a 50,000 sq. ft. office and manufacturing facility in Fort Worth, and serves many of the industry’s largest producers.

Our engineers come from some of the best names in the industry, like Borden Dairy, APV, Coca-Cola, Ecolab, and Alfa Laval. With over 160 years combined engineering experience in the Dairy industry, our team of talented engineers has successfully solved many of the industry’s toughest challenges.

Our corporate office and manufacturing facility is where we support our growing staff of engineers, along with housing both our process systems and our control panel fabrication shops. In addition, Carlson Engineering employs dedicated software developers to support its growing network of Carlson Plant Control System application users.

While based in Fort Worth, our reach is nationwide. On any given day, you will find Carlson engineers deployed at sites across the country. We support our clients, wherever that location may be.
