Today, February 1, 2016, marks the 70th anniversary of the establishment of Morrison Hershfield.
1946 was a pivotal year in the history of the world. World War II had just ended, and the post-war economic boom was just beginning.
1946 was also the year that Carson Morrison, Charlie Hershfield, Joe Millman, and Mark Huggins decided to pool their talents and form a partnership offering civil, structural, and mechanical engineering services.
Their new venture officially commenced on February 1, 1946, under the name ‘Morrison, Hershfield and Millman – Consulting Engineers’, and the company was off and running.
The firm has grown considerably since those early days. Today, the firm has an impressive track record of award-winning projects, numerous long-standing and exceptional clients, and market-focused services offered by talented staff. We have grown to over 900 employees with offices spanning all of North America.
“We have clearly come a long way over the previous seven decades, and imagine how far we will go, and the significant contributions that we will make to the communities we serve and society as a whole, over the next seven decades,” Anthony Karakatsanis, President & CEO, said about the achievement.
Morrison Hershfield is proud to celebrate 70 years in business. We look forward to celebrating many more years as a customer focused, employee owned business that continues to be our client’s first call for engineering solutions that make a difference.
