Kitchener’s history dates back to the late 16th century, with proud ancestral roots in the Six Nations. In the early 1800s, the area was settled by German Mennonite farming families from Pennsylvania which included the Schneider family. Known variously through the years as the Township of Waterloo, County of Waterloo, and Berlin, the city changed its name to Kitchener in 1916.
Today, downtown Kitchener is flourishing and sophisticated. It offers all the amenities of a large city. A vibrant cultural scene abounds; there are sporting events aplenty; everything is within easy walking distance; multiple housing types are mixed in with commercial districts. The knowledge and education cluster attracts some of the best and brightest minds around.
Dillon is pleased to be counted among the many progressive firms that occupy downtown Kitchener. Our office and staff have been part of the Region of Waterloo community since 1970. We provide consulting services to both the private and public sectors with a variety of professional disciplines. We service local clients in the areas of Niagara, Hamilton, Waterloo and Wellington, as well as other provincial, national and international clients. We provide a full range of consulting services, focused primarily in municipal engineering, transportation engineering, site contaminant management, environmental management, planning, water resources, and the natural environment.
Our office is located on the edge of downtown Kitchener, in an area of significant revitalization. We are adjacent to the Tannery, the University of Waterloo’s School of Pharmacy and the Region of Waterloo’s planned transportation hub.
The Greater Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber of Commerce honoured Dillon with a Business Excellence Award for Health and Wellness in the Workplace in 2017.
