CMI was founded by Elaine Mendoza in San Antonio, Texas, July 5, 1990. Elaine’s vision of creating a company that makes a positive difference to customers, team members, and the community remains the guiding principles for growth today and tomorrow. The high level, long-term strategic plan was to build credibility and a solid foundation as a company delivering services to the Department of Defense, specifically the US Air Force. We planned to build upon that foundation and develop a product for the private-sector community and expand our scientific and technical contractor base to other government agencies. Our first objective was to earn an opportunity to work for the US Air Force in San Antonio. Once that opportunity was secured, we focused all our energies on doing the right things. This initiated the journey to focus on delivering the best solutions for our customers, build CMI’s reputation, credibility and business base, all one customer at a time. With each customer and opportunity, we have remained steadfast to delivering quality, customer-driven solutions and exceptional customer service. Our focus on our customers created more opportunities to serve the US Air Force and to build teams around our customers’ needs.
