Dr. Richard Amos
President, CEO

After serving more than 30 years in the U.S. Army, Francisco J. Collazo, a native of Puerto Rico, founded COLSA Corporation in 1980. Mr. Collazo envisioned a distinctive kind of engineering and support services company. His vision was to build COLSA with a reputation of excellence and quality work, to deliver unsurpassed customer support, and to create a work environment that would attract and retain the best talent.

Mr. Collazo’s vision was soon realized with COLSA establishing a reputation as a first-rate provider of engineering and support services while employing a staff of respected experts. Because we have remained steadfast in our commitment to Mr. Collazo’s vision – to serve our customers with dedication and excellence – COLSA has provided customers with innovative information and engineering services and solutions for 40 years.

Meet our people.

At COLSA, our leaders work hand in hand with our people and our clients. They know the way forward requires working together by encouraging new ideas and ways of thinking.
