ForeFront Engineering & Design, Inc. was incorporated in 1998 by three naval nuclear engineers with a passion for innovation and disruptive technologies. ForeFront started as an engineering design firm revolving around computer-aided engineering, completing projects using both computer-aided design (CAD) and complex finite-element analysis software. ForeFront started out designing and analyzing solid oxide fuel cells. Just like the city in which we are headquartered, Pittsburgh, PA, we have grown to be a robust engineering design firm supporting technology development in many industries, such as power generation and nuclear, medical and transportation as well as United States government agencies.
