You may find this interesting as you read their web page you find LANS has struck again as they are former BECHTEL employees that own this company.
COMPA is an award winning, family owned and operated business. Its current CEO is Ms. Edna Lopez. COMPA was originally founded by Rene Laform Lopez in 1986. Rene was a nuclear engineer, who worked for the Bechtel Group on multiple national and international power plant projects, until he decided to start his own business in 1986. Based on the core value of family, the business was named COMPA. The word "COMPA" comes from the Spanish word "compadre," which literally means "co-parent." The original partners of COMPA were a tight group of friends, who celebrated major family events and holidays with each other and even served as godparents for each other's children, hence COMPAs. As the business struggled in the early years, Rene’s partners eventually bowed out and left the dream to Rene and Edna. Always wanting to return to their native Southwest, the family Lopez moved the COMPA's headquarters to Albuquerque where the business continues today.Preliminary review will mean a reduction in compensation as their 401k retirement is less than half what COMFORCE has me on.
