SSOE Group Recognized as one of the Fastest-Growing Architectural, Engineering, Planning, and Environmental Consulting Firms in the U.S.

TOLEDO, Ohio, June 15, 2021 – SSOE Group, a global project delivery firm for architecture, engineering, and construction management, has again been ranked as a “Hot Firm” by management consulting and research firm Zweig Group. This ranking signifies that SSOE is one of the fastest-growing architecture, engineering, planning, and environmental consulting firms in the United States. Firms are ranked by a score comprised of both dollar and percentage revenue growth rate over a three-year period. This ranking, established over 20 years ago, is the only list celebrating and honoring growth in the industry.

SSOE’s President and CEO Vince DiPofi, PE commented on the ranking, saying, “2020 was one of the most successful years in SSOE’s history. This success, and that over the course of the last few years, is attributed to how we have strategically diversified our business to serve different markets. While some of the markets we serve were negatively affected by the pandemic, others such as food manufacturing and semiconductors thrived and saw a huge increase in consumer demand and the need for engineering support. Additionally, we are seeing that the markets initially impacted by the pandemic have returned to pre-COVID normal and are on pace for a record-breaking year.”

“Celebration of purpose and performance has always been one of primary pillars of our annual conference. We are thrilled to be able to gather and celebrate growth after a year of so much uncertainty,” said Zweig Group CEO Chad Clinehens. “The 2021 Hot Firms are a confirmation of the vigor and resilience of the AEC industry.”

2021 Hot Firm winners will be celebrated at both virtual and in-person versions of the ElevateAEC Conference. The Virtual ElevateAEC Conference is a free event taking place September 13 – October 8, 2021. The in-person ElevateAEC Conference and Awards Gala will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Denver, Colorado on November 3 – 5, 2021.
