who we are

The mission of Monte sano research...
"provide extraordinary talent, to propel the warfighter"

In July of 2009, a small group of Huntsville, AL engineers had a desire to create a company focused intentionally on its employees and customers. Having survived 4 complicated acquisitions in an eight-year span, these soon-to-be company owners knew up front that their company would have a unique purpose, setting it apart from most other defense service providers, and would be, most decidedly, not for sale. With this, Monte Sano Research Corporation was born, providing the infrastructure and stability required to facilitate and catalyze the relationship between our customers and our extremely talented workforce.

Monte Sano Research is a place where employees are considered our most valuable asset. Our fiscal responsibility allows us to offer generous compensation and a benefits package that is unparalleled. We provide growth opportunities and consistently and generously reward exceptional performers.

Our management philosophy is to hire self-disciplined top talent, surround them with the resources and tools they need, and empower them to innovate. We are committed to continuing professional development and providing challenging work to further the advancement of the subject matter expert as well as the industry beginner.

Monte Sano Research headquarters are located in Huntsville, Alabama. We are privately held, and our company owners are passionately involved, with long-term plans for growth and sustainment. 

Monte Sano Research is Rock Solid and here to stay!
