Mead & Hunt acquires EMR, leading food and beverage engineering and construction management firm
Two leaders in the engineering industry are joining forces. Mead & Hunt, one of the largest and well-recognized architectural engineering firms in the nation, has acquired EMR, a leading engineering and construction management firm in the food sector.
“Mead & Hunt’s business philosophy is to grow profitably while maintaining our focus on excellent service and preserving our culture. We diversify our business by expanding services offered in existing offices and starting new initiatives. This makes EMR the perfect fit,” said Andy Platz, President of Mead & Hunt. “Our success hinges on the principle that clients hire people. The EMR staff’s strong relationships with valued clients and teaming partners will play a large role in our continued success.”
The food and beverage industry capital spending has been on the rise over the past several years. Changing demographics are driving manufacturers to develop new products at an increasing rate to satisfy the interests of their customers. This demand is further backed by the need to prepare for the Food Safety Modernization Act regulations and Global Food Safety Initiative certification. Mead & Hunt is positioned well to help food and beverage manufacturers address these challenges.
