EMJ Corporation ranks #59 among the Top Contractors in the Southeast, according to recent rankings published in Engineering News-Record (ENR).
ENR annually ranks the Top 400 Contractors in the country according to their revenue in a calendar year. The Southeast rankings recognize work in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Puerto Rico and come a month after ENR’s overall rankings for the nation, in which EMJ ranks #86 in the U.S.
Building the Southeast
Founded in Chattanooga, Tenn., in 1968, EMJ has continually had a strong presence across the southeast, from hometown projects like Hamilton Place Mall and the Hunter Museum to repeat work for Shaw Industries Group, Inc., in Georgia and Alabama.
Our ranking this year is due to projects completed during fiscal year 2017, including stand-out projects such as Shaw Create Centre, Market City Center, Signal Mill, Lee Vista Promenade, FedEx Ground and programmatic work for Lidl, 7-Eleven, and more. Additionally, EMJ’s work on several hotels in Florida played a large part in the ranking.
With the recent completion of a Publix grocery and Ruby Falls in Chattanooga and other notable projects underway in Decatur, Ga., Wilmington, N.C., Andalusia, Ala., and Hobe Sound, Fla., the outlook for 2018 is bright as EMJ continues to build relationships in the Southeast and gain knowledge of the unique needs of the region.
Congratulations to our EMJ team on this ranking. Thanks for your continual hard work and dedication to service, and many thanks also to the clients and partners who helped us achieve this ranking!
