Stanley Consultants, Inc. is an American-based international engineering, construction, and environmental engineering services company with its headquarters in Muscatine, Iowa, U.S.A.. Stanley Consultants also has offices in 17 other locations in the U.S. and 10 countries. The company has undertaken projects in over 96 countries.

Stanley Consultants began as a small engineering firm in Muscatine, Iowa, founded by Charles Young in 1913. In 1932, C. Maxwell "Max" Stanley joined the firm, and its business and geographical reach grew. The 1930s brought an expansion of public works projects in the United States under the federal Public Works Administration. Stanley Consultants obtained many government contracts dealing with rural electrification, state roads and highways, and water supply and sanitation systems.

In 1957, Stanley Consultants began its international operations, opening an office in Monrovia, Liberia. In the 1960s, Stanley Consultants expanded its services to meet client needs which exceeded pure engineering. The company developed a multi-disciplinary consulting services practice to later include professional architects, economists, construction managers, and planners - among others. The company continues to expand its business, and recently entered into the environmental engineering and design-build fields.
