Pathfinder, LLC was created in 1975 in response to a vision. We recognized that the expertise to successfully plan, execute and commission domestic and international capital plant projects, hard-earned by the Chemical Process Industry (CPI) during its unprecedented worldwide growth in the 1960s and 1970s, needed to be retained as a vital industry resource available "on call" to industry participants in the future.
Realizing that the significant capital cost and execution time of retrofitting or building new manufacturing facilities can be impacted by as much as 20 to 30 percent depending on a company's project planning and execution approach, there needed to be a resource that companies could rely on to reinforce these best practices. Pathfinder was established to provide a stable, totally independent and fully focused project management organization in support of executing projects to defined performance drivers. Pathfinder is dedicated to the collection, preservation, enhancement, application and transfer of this vital and dynamic body of knowledge.
