Coffman Engineers hits the Zweig Letter’s hot firms for 2012 list

Spokane's Coffman Engineers, Inc. is ranked 59 out of 100 on The Zweig Letter's “2012 Hot Firm List.”

The Zweig list tries to identify the 100 fastest growing architecture, engineering, planning, and environmental consulting firms in the United States and Canada. The rankings are based on surveys conducted by ZweigWhite and are based on the individual firm’s three-year growth rate in gross revenue.

Coffman, which does a broad array of engineering services and has been in business for 33 years, is the only Spokane area company on the list.

Portland firm Cardno USA is the No. 1 company this year. Others from the ara are Dade Moeller, from Richland, No. 10 on the list; Golder Associates of Redmond, No. 21; and MacKay Sposito, of Vancouver, Wash., No. 54.

The ranking is the based on Coffman’s continued growth over the past several years despite the difficult economy. 2011 marked the best year in the company’s history in terms of revenue and staff size. Company growth has continued in 2012, most notably with the opening of Coffman’s sixth office in Guam.

A press release included the statement: “Coffman Engineers has managed to thrive as a company despite the poor economy of the past few years. This is due to our diversity with our office locations, the markets in which we work, and the services we provided,” said Coffman Engineer’s founder and CEO Dave Coffman.
