Jacksonville, FL — July 13, 2006 — Known as the industry leader for professional surveying and mapping services throughout Florida, Jacksonville-based Clary & Associates, Inc. is celebrating a remarkable 23rd year of service to its strong following of government and private sector clients.
With the past year marked by continued company growth; expanded staff and field crews; a growing company fleet; interior office renovations and new facility development; and equipment upgrades to the latest technology, its no surprise that Clary and Associates sets the bar for excellence in the local surveying and mapping profession.
Not only does the company remain dedicated to maintaining the high quality of its multitude of offered services, its long-time employees also remain dedicated to the company and its diverse clients. Many team members have been with Clary & Associates for more than a decade — some, from the company’s inception.
“It’s always great to collectively celebrate our continued passion for our profession. We look forward to each milestone year,” said Greg Clary, founder and president of Clary & Associates, Inc. “Our permanence is a tremendous testament to our team’s unwavering dedication to our valued clients, to this company and to each other. Our team is comprised of highly skilled professionals who approach their careers with integrity, a strong work ethic and a desire to grow with the company. This has been a phenomenal year, and it definitely is an outstanding team achievement.”
Founded in 1983, Clary & Associates broke into the local industry with only seven employees, a small office from which to work, and manual measuring tools that were “cutting edge” just over two decades ago. Headquartered in Mandarin, Clary & Associates now operates from a 6,500-square-foot facility. The company is in the process of constructing a second facility at its current location, which is planned for approximately 3,380 square feet. Each building will serve to house only the most advanced technological equipment, computer hardware, and software applications.
Currently, Clary & Associates is developing and maintaining the Clary Business Intelligence System — intelligent and scalable, enterprise-wide solutions that support the company’s business and technical needs, as well as its continuous rapid growth.
The company also uses only the most recent Global Positioning System (GPS) technology and AutoCAD/Softdesk, Microstation/GeoPak and MicroSurvey applications. Key team members use Bluetooth wireless communication technology by way of Blackberry Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs).
Clary & Associates also provides state-of-the-art surveying and mapping services by its use of a real-time GPS vehicle tracking system. This technology allows management to coordinate vehicle routes and operations via the Internet, which promotes timely completion of projects and a high level of employee production and safety.
With a keen sense of the surveying and mapping profession and its ever-changing technological advancements, Greg Clary is always mindful of valuable growth initiatives that serve his clients well and ensure that employees can be upwardly mobile within the company.

I can say, without a doubt, that my years with Greg Clary have been the most rewarding of my career,” said Dennis Elswick, executive vice president for Clary & Associates. “I wouldn’t want to work anywhere else.”
