Hargrove Engineers + Constructors Chemicals Sector Ranks in Top Ten U.S. Engineering Firms by Engineering News Record
Jul 21, 2015
For the first time Hargrove Engineers + Constructors has broken into Engineering News Record’s (ENR) top ten firms in the chemicals category. As Hargrove’s largest business sector, the chemicals industry includes the company’s support to manufacturers of polymers, bulk petrochemicals and intermediates for use in the petroleum industry, derivatives, inorganic, and agricultural chemicals. The ENR Sourcebook ranks Hargrove’s chemical division at No. 9, up from the No.10 position in 2014.
Hargrove has multi-site alliances with a number of Fortune 500 chemical producers in the United States and supports clients’ facilities with local offices on plant-level projects as well as major plant expansions. “Our continued growth and subsequent climb in the rankings validates that our business model resonates with not only our existing clients, many of whom we have been supporting from the company’s inception, but with the addition of new clients each year,” said Scott Bergoon, PE vice president business development + strategy. “Being in the right place with the right people at the right time added value 20 years ago and continues to add value to our clients. Even though we are now able to execute projects on a scale much larger than when the company started, our core continues to be supporting clients at the plant/refinery/mill with small project support.”
Hargrove placed in the top 10 firms in pharmaceuticals and chemicals and in the top 20 in industrial process, refining and fossil fuel (power). Overall, Hargrove climbed 25 places from 2014, coming in at No. 90.
