HARGROVE OPENS OFFICE IN LAKE CHARLES, LOUISIANA
Apr 3, 2018
The Hargrove and Associates team is expanding to a new office at 299 South Cities Service Hwy Suite 6 in Sulphur, Louisiana, near Lake Charles, situated between Hargrove’s offices in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Port Arthur, Texas. This will be Hargrove’s 13th full-service office location and the second in the state of Louisiana.
“We are excited to grow our presence in the east Texas/west Louisiana region,” said Tom Butts, PE, vice president of operations. “Our presence in this region will ensure that our team can provide boots on the ground support to Hargrove’s clients in the area. We are grateful to expand and continue to provide our Gulf Coast region clients with quality, speed, and service characteristic of our Hargrove One Team culture.”
The Lake Charles office opening comes on the heels of three new Texas offices: Angleton in 2017, Port Arthur in early 2016, and Houston in 2014. Teammates located in this office will add to the growing 700+ engineering and technical professionals currently supporting Hargrove’s refining, petrochemical, chemical, oil + gas, and pulp + paper clients from the Baton Rouge, Houston, Port Arthur, Angleton, and site-based offices in Texas and Louisiana.
The Hargrove team has grown steadily year over year and now consists of more than 1700 teammates across the United States with a strong presence in the Gulf Coast region. Hargrove’s technical and professional staff includes process discipline engineers experienced in the special needs of the diverse clients they serve. As Engineering News Records’ No. 3 ranking firm in the chemical sector nationally, Hargrove is well positioned to continue its growth with clients in the region.
“We continue to listen to our clients and grow with their needs in mind,” said Ralph A. Hargrove, president and CEO. “This has been our approach from the beginning. Each move we make is client-driven as we focus on their needs, plans, and expectations, which has ultimately led to mutual success.”
