SAM, LLC Celebrates 25 Years of Business

Austin, TX — April 18, 2019 — On April 18, SAM, LLC proudly celebrates its 25th anniversary. What was once a local, Texas company focused solely on land surveying services, has now grown into one of the largest, full-service, geospatial and construction-phase services firms in the country. The organization is now driven by 1,000 employees in 30 offices and achieved a company-record $181 million in revenue in 2018.

Headquartered in Austin, Texas and founded in 1994 by Samir “Sam” G. Hanna, SAM is most recognized as a technology powerhouse. With over $15 million in technological investments through 2018, the company has developed an attractive project portfolio to serve a wide array of markets in the architecture, engineering, and construction (A/E/C) industry.

Chris Solomon, SAM President and CEO, guides the organization’s strategic leadership and is focused on organic and acquisitive development. Over the past three years, SAM has experienced aggressive growth through both market and geographic expansion.
