Wink Engineering (aka Wink, Inc.)
WINK, INCORPORATED is a multi-discipline professional design firm established in 1970. Our corporate offices are located in New Orleans, Louisiana; with full-service branch offices in Baton Rouge and Lafayette, Louisiana; and Biloxi, Mississippi. A closely-held family corporation, Wink has a full-time work force of approximately 335 personnel and annual sales of approximately $28 Million. Wink has provided engineering services to the terminal industry since the 1970s. Our firm was a charter member of the Independent Liquid Terminals Association (ILTA) Supplier Organization.

We are Dock Design Experts, with extensive experience in the design of marine facilities. The bulk of this experience is along the Mississippi River, which involves significant challenges such as multi-agency permit requirements and construction scheduling to accommodate variations in the River stage. Structural designs must accommodate river bottom scouring, high and low river barges, and current direction and velocity. Our experience includes the design of storage tanks, product loading and unloading facilities, and Marine Vapor Control Systems.
