More Than a Century of Progress

Our story began in 1911. James Tighe, a smart and resourceful Irish immigrant, launched his own engineering practice in Holyoke, Massachusetts. Philip Bond later joined Tighe, and together they shaped the foundation for Tighe & Bond’s bright future.

When Tighe & Bond celebrated its 100-year anniversary in 2011, we put together a memory book that documents the firm’s evolution from 1911-2011. Perhaps you might want to take a look?
