A civil engineering firm that is one of the largest private companies in Central Pennsylvania has expanded its midstate operations.
Herbert Rowland & Grubic Inc., based in Swatara Township, Dauphin County, said it has opened a new office in the CGA Professional Center at 135 N. George St. in downtown York.
Longtime community planner Tim Staub, a member of the Springettsbury Township Planning Commission, will run the new office.
HRG has eight offices across its footprint, including six in Pennsylvania and two others in Ohio and West Virginia. The York office will support future HRG projects in York County, which is becoming one of the fastest-growing areas for industrial development. New warehouse and distribution centers continue to rise along the Interstate 83 and Route 30 corridors.
HRG has provided land development services for several recent industrial projects in the county.
The Dauphin County firm also designed a helipad and improved parking and access at WellSpan York Hospital. The firm is currently working with the York County Planning Commission on a regional stormwater management plan.
Founded in 1962, HRG has grown to more than 200 employees. It finished 2016 with $27.9 million in revenue, according to Business Journal records, which put the firm at No. 90 on the publication’s Top 100/250 list. The list is based on total revenue.
