Midwest Engineering Associates joins Fehr Graham

Midwest Engineering, a 34-person engineering firm based in East Peoria, Illinois, merged with Fehr Graham.

Midwest Engineering co-owners, Robert Culp, PE, CFM, and David Horton, PE, chose Fehr Graham because the two firms share a focus on providing value and innovative solutions to clients' problems.

"We wanted a partner with similar values and business acumen," Culp said. "Fehr Graham has grown over the years but has maintained a small firm feel by being attentive to clients, which resonated with our approach to client business."

For Fehr Graham, Midwest Engineering's established structural and transportation engineering services combined with expertise in mechanical and electrical engineering align with strategic growth objectives. Fehr Graham President Mick Gronewold, PE, appreciates how well the strengths of the people from both firms complement each other.

When we saw the level of services and expertise Midwest Engineering brought to the table, we knew they would be a perfect addition to our team. Their culture fits seamlessly with ours, and together, we're stronger."
