Donan Engineering Expansion Continues
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Dec. 30 /PRNewswire/ — Donan Engineering Co., Inc. today announced plans to expand their forensic engineering and fire investigation operations into Florida with openings in Orlando and Tampa. Donan will begin offering forensic investigative services from the new Florida offices beginning January 1, 2010. These new offices will provide the state of Florida with a local, single-source provider for forensic engineering and fire investigation services.
“Opening two offices in Florida simultaneously is a huge commitment and challenge for our organization, but it is one that we are extremely excited to take on,” says Lyle Donan, CEO and President. “Florida has always been known in our industry for its very unique business challenges. The state is obviously prone to natural disasters, especially during hurricane season, and we feel our firm can be a huge asset in the state for helping those affected with these types of events.”
“Over the past several years as we have continued growing into the southeastern United States, and along the way many of our clients have strongly encouraged us to open in the Florida market. They have repeatedly told us that there is always room for a firm that provides results in a timely fashion and at a reasonable rate. Now with our planned openings in Orlando and Tampa it is up to us to continue to deliver the type of exceptional service that we are known for throughout our footprint.”
Donan Engineering offers consumers a single source for forensic engineering investigations and fire origin and cause investigations. The firm offers a wide array of services falling under the main categories of structural engineering investigations, fire and explosion origin & cause investigations, roofing investigations, vehicle accident reconstructions, and component testing laboratory services.
Donan Engineering is a third-generation family-owned engineering firm that was founded in 1947 in Madisonville, Kentucky. From 1947 until 1999, the firm focused on providing mostly conventional engineering services (civil, structural, environmental, architecture, etc.). In 1999, with approximately 20 employees in four offices, the decision was made to focus exclusively on the forensic engineering and fire investigation industry.
The firm is now headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky. Including the two offices in Florida and one in Chicago opening January 1, Donan now has over 160 employees operating from 24 offices in 12 states. From these locations, the firm completed approximately 18,000 forensic investigations in 2009 for a client base consisting primarily of insurance companies, attorneys, commercial property owners and businesses, manufacturers, utilities, and homeowners.
