Fehr Graham Recognized Again as Engineering News-Record Top 500 Design Firm

Picture1Rockford, Illinois (April 26, 2024) – Fehr Graham, a leading Midwest engineering and environmental firm, again secured a spot on the Engineering News-Record (ENR) Top 500 Design Firms list, ranking No. 474. The firm ranked No. 494 in 2022 and 471 in 2023.

This marks the third consecutive year the firm has been featured on the prestigious list, which ranks the largest engineering consulting firms in the United States based on design service revenue for the previous year.

Fehr Graham President Mick Gronewold is happy with the firm’s steady recognition.

“Every day, our team is committed to solving problems for clients,” Gronewold said. “Being named to the ENR list again doesn’t just recognize our firm’s capabilities – it celebrates the positive change we make in the communities where we operate and where our employees call home.”

Founded on Sept. 15, 1973, in Freeport, Illinois, by Al Fehr and Joe Graham, Fehr Graham has expanded from a single office with five employees to 15 offices across three states with 230 people. This growth includes a recent merger with Midwest Engineering Associates on April 1, and a strategic partnership with Trilon Group announced in May 2023.

“This recognition not only reflects Fehr Graham’s growth but the dedication and expertise of our employees who drive our success,” Gronewold said. “Their commitment to clients is all part of how we’re able to serve a larger footprint and bring our small firm feel with big firm capabilities to new areas. It’s a tribute to Al and Joe’s original vision.”
