Parametric Solutions, a Florida engineering firm that specializes in gas and underwater turbines, is ready to add staff members in 2013. According to the South Florida Business Journal, the company intends to increase its workforce as part of its two-year expansion plan. Additionally, Parametric Solutions officials announced that they purchased a 40,000-square-foot facility in Palm Beach County, Florida.

???[The business’] decision to expand confirms that Palm Beach County and the state of Florida offer an attractive environment for aviation, aerospace and engineering companies,” Kelly Smallridge, CEO of the Palm Beach County Business Development Board, told the news source.

Engineering positions are quickly becoming available across the country, which is reflected in recent data. Architect Magazine reports that at least 3,800 engineering jobs were added to the U.S. economy in December 2012. The increase in hiring among engineering firms has helped the country lower its unemployment rate over the past year, and these companies could significantly influence the nation’s economy in 2013. If engineering businesses continue to grow, they could substantially boost their profits and hire more skilled professionals so they can successfully meet the needs of their clientele.
