Home » About Us

MSA is full of curious, analytical, creative people who love putting data to work.

For five decades, we’ve used analytics and informatics to help customers answer questions and solve problems.

Every day, we analyze data, develop systems, and create IT infrastructure to help inform decision-making, forecast outcomes, and automate workflow and processes.

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, including Consumer Packaged Goods, Media, Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals, Metals & Advanced Manufacturing, Casino Gaming, Medical Cannabis, and Internet Applications. We’ve been fortunate to work with some of the largest corporations in the world.

Let us show you how to put your data to work — and reach your goals.

Our People

Our greatest asset is our people. They’re knowledgeable. Motivated. Curious. And they’re relentless when it comes to problem solving. MSA was geek chic from the beginning, long before it became fashionable. And our people are, at the deepest level, the reason for our success.

Dr. Alfred A. Kuehn, PhD, our owner, founder, and chairman emeritus, is a chemical engineer and researcher who, prior to starting MSA in 1963, was a student and faculty member of Carnegie Mellon University’s Tepper School of Business. Academically, he was interested in bringing a quantitative approach to decision-making and problem solving.

From our principal we have learned our principles. Dr. Kuehn’s goal is to identify new and challenging problems that require original solutions. This informs our approach, influences our products and services, and creates our culture of innovation.

Our success, our customers, and our culture are like a giant magnet. That’s why MSA attracts people who enjoy solving problems, looking for new models, and focusing on the details and dynamics. MSAers are intrapreneurs. They love to learn, and love to build things that work in the real world.

Today, we have more than 700 incredibly talented employees and contractors. And they’re as creative outside of the office as in.
