Firm Recognized for its Regional Growth, Business Results and Contributions to the Community
RETTEW, an Engineering News-Record top 500 design firm providing engineering, transportation, environmental consulting, planning and surveying services, was recently named on Pennsylvania Business Central’s list of top 100 organizations for 2012.
“RETTEW is very excited to be named on Pennsylvania Business Central’s list of top 100 organizations,” said Mark Lauriello, PE, president, RETTEW. “Our placement on the list is indicative of our regional success and dedication to the local communities.”
Pennsylvania Business Central (PBC) covers the counties of Bedford, Blair, Bradford, Cambria, Centre, Clearfield, Clinton, Fayette, Huntingdon, Indiana, Juniata, Lycoming, Mifflin, Northumberland, Snyder, Somerset, Susquehanna, Tioga, Union and Westmoreland. RETTEW experienced unprecedented growth in PBC’s readership area over the past two years, primarily as a result of the firm’s involvement in providing engineering, consulting and construction-related services to natural gas exploration and production firms involved in the Marcellus Shale Region. RETTEW also provides transportation program management services, including comprehensive roadway reconstruction services, and assists municipalities and regional developers in addressing the subsequent residential, commercial, industrial and infrastructure needs created by the region’s rapid economic growth. Rettew Flowback Inc., a sister company of RETTEW, provides construction site inspection, pad construction inspection, pad management, traffic management and water treatment and recycling services.
“RETTEW is truly grateful to be a part of the growth that is occurring in Pennsylvania’s central region,” added Lauriello.
In March 2010, RETTEW opened an office in Williamsport, Lycoming County, with three employees. High demand for RETTEW’s services prompted the firm to relocate its Williamsport office in November 2010. By September 2011, RETTEW again relocated and expanded its Williamsport office to its present location, 130 Court Street, Suite 200. In January 2012 the Williamsport office employed 44 staff members, which represents a nearly 1,400 percent increase in Lycoming County employment in less than two years. RETTEW plans to hire 25 additional Williamsport employees by the end of 2012.
In November 2011, RETTEW opened its second office in the PBC region in Bradford County. Located at 448 North Keystone Avenue, Sayre, the office employed eight staff by January 2012, and RETTEW anticipates adding 30 more hires to its Bradford county office this year.
RETTEW’s regional success has mirrored the firm’s overall success. From 2010 to 2011, RETTEW experienced a 107 percent year-over-year increase in total revenue and hired approximately 200 employees, doubling the total number of employees to approximately 400. In addition to adding an office in Bradford County and expanding and relocating its office in Williamsport, Pa., RETTEW also added offices in Pittsburgh, Pa.; Canton, Ohio; and Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley, bringing the total number of office locations to ten. In 2011, the firm also ranked 12th on the list of Best Places to Work in PA among large companies.
RETTEW’s success has also allowed the firm to provide greater support to the community. The firm held a recent companywide food drive, which raised $16,000 and 6,000 pounds of food. Partnering with the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank enabled RETTEW to provide donations to Lycoming County. In addition, RETTEW raised and contributed a record $20,000 for the American Cancer Society through the firm’s Relay for Life Team. The firm also contributed $5,000 in relief aid for the 2011 flood events that affected many communities from the New York Catskills region through Central Pennsylvania. RETTEW employees also volunteer for the Central Pennsylvania Ronald McDonald House by preparing and serving meals.
In addition to regional offices located in Bradford and Lycoming counties, RETTEW has offices located in Lancaster, Lehigh Valley, Mechanicsburg, Pittsburgh and Schuylkill Haven, Pa; Canton, Ohio; and Liberty and Margaretville, N.Y.
