New brand to build a foundation for future growth and success
Grand Rapids, Michigan, November 12, 2019 — Today, Fishbeck, Thompson, Carr & Huber (FTC&H) an engineering, architecture, environmental, and construction management firm, announced its new company name and brand. Moving to a name more affectionately embraced by its staff and clients - Fishbeck - reflects the current expansion and progression of the company. With locations in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana, the rebrand aims to create cohesion among all 14 offices with a name that represents the newest and most progressive ideas of the growing business.
“Over the last 20 years, our firm has experienced tremendous growth and expansion into new markets. It was time for a change to reflect this growth. As we continue to expand, we felt a name change would present a unified message that is more easily recognized in all the regions in which we provide our service,” said Jeff Schumaker, PE, President and Principal of Fishbeck. “This new brand represents the innovative work and minds we have at our firm.”
With an established history in Michigan since 1956, Fishbeck began opening additional offices outside of its home state in 2006, focusing on public infrastructure, public spaces, manufacturers, and higher education. Over the past 10 years, Fishbeck’s revenue has grown by almost 50%, with a staff increase of over 25%. With this extraordinary growth, Fishbeck has further advanced its Midwest expansion and grown its engineering and architectural services. In 2019, Fishbeck opened a new location in Indianapolis, Indiana and acquired the Ohio-based consulting firm, Northwest Consultants, Inc.
Fishbeck’s ownership structure remains 100% employee-owned. While the name change will provide new opportunities in additional markets, Fishbeck’s core services remain engineering, architecture, environmental sciences, and construction management.
Established in 1956, Fishbeck is a full-service engineering, architectural, environmental, and construction management consulting firm with over 450 employees. Fishbeck is one of the Top 500 design firms in the U.S. as ranked in Engineering News-Record.
