Gonzales Main Street celebrates Southwest Engineers as Business of the Month


Gonzales Main Street takes immense pride in spotlighting businesses that embody the spirit of our vibrant community. This month, we are thrilled to honor Southwest Engineers as our Main Street Business of the Month, a testament to their unwavering commitment to excellence and their deep-rooted connection to Gonzales County.

Since its humble beginnings as a family-owned enterprise in 1978, Southwest Engineers has flourished into a cornerstone of our local business landscape. Nestled at 307 Saint Lawrence St., this esteemed firm boasts close to 80 dedicated employees spread across three strategically located offices, including Buda, Bastrop, and its heart in Gonzales.

Specializing in civil engineering, water, and wastewater solutions, Southwest Engineers has left an indelible mark on our community through their stellar work in public infrastructure, private development, and right-of-way easement applications. Their commitment to innovation and excellence has not only transformed our physical landscape but has also contributed significantly to the sustainable growth and development of Gonzales.

The legacy of Southwest Engineers is deeply intertwined with the rich tapestry of Gonzales County, with the Littlefield family tracing their roots back to 1853. John Littlefield, a visionary leader within the company, recognizes the boundless opportunities that Gonzales offers.

He remarks, "Gonzales is unique with the history of the community, two squares, and one of the biggest downtown areas of a small town in the state."

His optimism and forward-thinking approach underscore Southwest Engineers' dedication to driving economic development and revitalizing our downtown core.

Patriarch Clarence Littlefield echoes his sentiments, emphasizing the pivotal role that small businesses play in fostering community growth. He believes that by supporting local enterprises and nurturing the downtown revitalization efforts spearheaded by the Main Street Program, we can cultivate a dynamic and thriving ecosystem where businesses and residents alike can flourish.

As Gonzales Main Street celebrates Southwest Engineers as our Business of the Month, we extend our heartfelt gratitude for their invaluable contributions to our community. Their unwavering dedication to excellence, coupled with their deep-seated commitment to Gonzales, exemplifies the spirit of entrepreneurship and community stewardship that defines our Main Street businesses.

Join us in congratulating Southwest Engineers on this well-deserved accolade and continue to support the vibrant tapestry of small businesses that make Gonzales the extraordinary community that it is today.
