SSOE Group Named One of the Fastest-Growing Architectural, Engineering, Planning, and Environmental Consulting Firms in the U.S.

Firm Makes Significant Jump Over Last Year’s Results

TOLEDO, Ohio, June 28, 2024 – SSOE Group, an internationally ranked architecture and engineering firm, has again been named a “Hot Firm” by management consulting and research firm Zweig Group. SSOE’s new #26 ranking reflects an increase of 25 spots over the 2023 list results, signifying that SSOE is one of the fastest-growing architecture, engineering, planning, and environmental consulting firms in the U.S. and Canada. Firms are ranked by a score comprised of both dollar and percentage revenue growth rates over a three-year period. Established over 20 years ago, this ranking is the only list celebrating and honoring growth in the industry.

SSOE’s CEO Vince DiPofi, PE, commented on the ranking, saying, “Last year was SSOE’s most successful year in company history and 2024 is looking to top that. This growth, in part, is fueled by our diverse expertise across the automotive, chemical process, and advanced technology sectors. Our successful entry into battery manufacturing is a testament to our unique approach, blending our extensive project experience with a forward-thinking mindset. This past year has not only seen us expand further into the battery and electric vehicle space, but also in burgeoning markets such as solar, hydrogen, and pharmaceuticals. SSOE’s commitment to maintaining our market position and delivering quality work remains unwavering. As we continue to navigate the evolving landscape of the AEC industry, our focus is steadfast on our mission to provide unparalleled client value and to be a catalyst for advancement across all the markets we serve.”
