Our History

Stites & Associates was founded in St. Louis, Missouri, in April of 1996. Ron Stites, an experienced Analytical Chemist with an MBA in Finance and Accounting, founded it as a consulting practice to the laboratory industry. It quickly became apparent that the needs of clients went well beyond Analytical Chemistry. Mr. Stites soon began working with various engineers, designers, trainers, attorneys, and subject matter experts to serve many different client needs, leading to the concept of creating a network of Technology Development experts.

This eclectic groups of "Associates" became the Technology Development Network of Stites & Associates.
