In 1970, John W. Oneto, Jr. and John E. Puhl formed a partnership and created Oneto and Puhl Engineering. Based in Stockton, CA, Oneto and Puhl Engineering began consulting and designing electrical systems for industrial plants. While working on a project with E.&J. Gallo Winery in Modesto, CA they were introduced to Ken Arthur.
Ken Arthur graduated from Michigan College of Mining & Technology in 1961 with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering. Ken joined Oneto and Puhl Engineering in 1972 as a Lead Project Engineer. John Puhl retired in 1978 and the name of the firm was changed to Oneto and Arthur Engineering.
The company continued to prosper by providing design services to an increasing list of clients. In 1986, Chuck Arthur joined Oneto and Arthur Engineering to work alongside his father. Chuck graduated from California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering in 1986 and became a licensed P.E. in California in 1989 and in Washington in 1994. Oneto and Arthur Engineering became a California Corporation in 1986. Jack Oneto retired in 1988 and the firm name was changed to Arthur Engineering, Inc.
