Garver acquires Wichita, Kansas-based firm
In a continued effort to spread its quality services, Garver announced today that it has acquired Ruggles & Bohm, an engineering and design services firm based in Wichita, Kansas. A trusted company with roots in Kansas for almost a quarter-century, Ruggles & Bohm has created its reputation by providing valued results based on sound relationships, which will only be enhanced by its transition into a Garver footprint that includes nearly 500 employees spread between 24 offices in 10 states.
Ruggles & Bohm’s 12 employees will transition immediately to Garver, while President Chris Bohm has been named Transportation Team Leader and will continue as point of contact for the Wichita office.
“As a founding partner, I can say that this is a great day for a firm that started with just four employees back in 1992,” Bohm said. “This transition combines our local expertise with a staff of nationally recognized engineers that will provide our clients with a level of service not before possible, and our employees with unparalleled benefits and growth opportunities.”
Since 1992, Ruggles & Bohm has provided its clients with civil engineering, land surveying, landscape architecture, and government services, growing with a philosophy rooted in valued results, clear answers, quality customer responses, and meaningful relationships. It has included the Wichita Airport Authority, McConnell Air Force Base, and the Kansas cities of Andover, Bel Aire, Maize, Newton, and Wichita, on its varied list of clients.
Garver, which is already working with the Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport, now has three Kansas offices – two in Wichita and one in Overland Park – among its 24 spread across the country.
