A national forensic services firm providing technical consulting to legal, insurance, and corporate clients, Armstrong Forensic Engineers, will expand its Salt Lake City, Utah operations center. The firm will move into newly constructed office space in American Fork, a Salt Lake City suburb, with testing facilities and additional office space for continued growth.
The firm offers forensic engineering services and expert testimony related to mechanical, biomechanical, and civil-structural engineering failures and accidents. Rapid Response inspections are provided throughout the United States from offices located in Austin, Chicago, Detroit, Salt Lake City, and Tampa. Armstrong's Salt Lake Office is located at 767 South Automall Drive, Suite 1, in American Fork, Utah.
"We expect Salt Lake City to become the hub of our business expansion in the western United States," commented Daniel J. Melcher, P.E., Director of Engineering. "We can now respond to accident scenes anywhere in the country within eight hours."
The company also said the newest member of its Utah team is Senior Consultant Jay Przybyla, P.E. After three years in Armstrong's office in Chicago, Przybyla brings a rich background in accident reconstruction, civil engineering, and safety engineering, the company said. A published author and presenter in the field of transportation engineering, Pryzbyla is currently completing a doctoral degree from the University of Utah. Prior to his work in forensic engineering, Przybyla served as a state trooper for the Utah Highway Patrol, focusing on accident investigations.
"Jay Przybyla's background in law enforcement and his education and expertise in transportation engineering make him an incredibly valuable asset to our company," says Jeffrey D. Armstrong, P.E., company founder.
