As we celebrate our twenty-fifth year in business, all of us at HGA would like to express our sincerest appreciation to you, our clients, for the opportunities you have afforded HGA and for your loyal support through the years.
Our company’s journey began in 1997, when Jay and Trott devised a business strategy to create an engineering and project management firm to serve a growing wood products market and related local opportunities. Since then, we have branched out into the oil and gas, government, power, infrastructure, and industrial markets. This diversification of our business footprint formed the foundation of what HGA is today. We will continue to seek opportunities to further diversify and prepare ourselves for the exciting business opportunities to come over the next decades. Today, our industry-leading business activities range widely, including engineering, project management, construction services, staffing, and advisory consulting services. Additionally, HGA has become a premier national disaster recovery firm that has managed numerous billion-dollar disaster recovery programs in the United States. These expansions were made possible by the opportunities you have afforded us and by the dedication and hard work of each member of the HGA team.
We’d also like to acknowledge Don Plummer for his highly engaged leadership over the past 20 years. Don’s steady leadership enabled HGA to diversify in different sectors, grow our staff, and established HGA as a leading competitor in multiple industries. Don continues to serve as an Advisor to the company and is also a member of our Board of Directors.
Reflecting on this progress, our mission of adding customer value has been focused on “partnering with clients to create the future.” As a business, we have celebrated many successes as we have transformed from our original office trailer to an important global brand. When we look back at the past 25 years, we can proudly say that HGA has grown to be a global company with annual sales exceeding $100 million in revenue. We will exceed our billionth dollar in revenue during the second quarter of 2022.
We believe that our 25 years of success are attributed to the opportunities that our customers have given us, which we have tackled with a wholehearted commitment to our core values of —most importantly, our service commitment to you, our customers; excellence; cost-effectiveness; and our commitment to teamwork.
Our diverse business footprint, our flexibility, our dedication to complete customer satisfaction, and our valued relationships will remain the foundation for our next 25 years of success.
As we celebrate our 25th anniversary, we thank you and look forward to continuing to partner with you to add value and help you create your future!
