About the Company

For five decades, we’ve used analytics and informatics to help customers answer questions and solve problems.   Every day, we analyze information, develop systems, manufacture data and create IT infrastructure to help inform decision-making, forecast outcomes, and automate workflow and process.   And while our success comes from our innovative thinking and attention to detail, it also springs from a fact we never forget: Our customers are the reason we are here. They’re our biggest source of information and inspiration. They know what their challenges are and where their opportunities lie. And we’re great at listening and learning about them. We dig deep to get a real understanding of our customers. Customer service defines our company.   That’s how we’ve grown – focusing on solving problems one customer and one project at a time.   Today, MSA serves institutions and companies across a spectrum of industries, from consumer packaged goods, media and IT to medical, life sciences, pharma, and even the arts. We’ve been fortunate to work with some of the largest corporations in the world, including such respected brands as The Hershey Company, United States Steel Corporation, R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company and Duquesne University, just to name a few.
