FORT WASHINGTON, PA, April 1, 2016 – McMahon Associates, Inc., a transportation engineering and planning firm, today announced the launch of a year-long celebration of the firm’s 40th anniversary. Started on the kitchen table at Joe & Peggy McMahon’s home in North Hills, PA, on April 1 in 1976, the firm has grown to 13 offices in 6 states along the East Coast with 150+ employees.
“When we sat down that day in 1976 and decided to go for it, we had no idea that forty years later we would be celebrating this incredible milestone,” said Joe McMahon, Chairman of the Board of McMahon Associates, Inc. “We started with the idea of creating a place that was great to work at. We have always focused on our people being our most valuable asset, along with sticking to our mission of providing exceptional client service. This has been the secret to our success and longevity.”
“This year is certainly a special one for everyone at McMahon,” said Joseph DeSantis, President of McMahon Associates, Inc. “I’ve been with the firm for nearly 30 years and I’m proud of our adaptability and tenacity in this always changing industry. When McMahon was originally founded, we focused on traffic services for the private sector, but over these past decades our services, and geographic areas, have grown exponentially into multiple markets and the public sector, which is now the majority of our projects.
We have truly morphed, through careful decision-making and strategic planning, into a full-service transportation engineering and planning company. We could not have accomplished this without the talents and dedication of our employees and our management team.”
McMahon is dedicated to providing the best environment for employees to reach great heights within the civil engineering world. The average tenure of project managers is 15+ years, which is nearly unheard of in the industry. Many remain part of the McMahon family from their early years in the co-op/ internship program, because they are continually challenged and supported by the entire organization to pursue their interests, which in turn grows the firm’s capabilities.
In 40 years, McMahon has had the privilege of serving more than 4,000 clients in the private and government/agency sectors on nearly 20,000 projects, ranging from studies through full design and multi-stage construction projects. It is a great testament to the firm’s capabilities and service levels that nearly 90% of new projects are repeat engagements from current clients.
Originally focused on traffic engineering & transportation planning, over four decades, McMahon has expanded service offerings to include signals/ITS, roadway design, transit planning, major highway and bridge design, surveying, pedestrian and roundabout design, multi-modal transportation planning and grant writing, and GIS & application development.
Whether it’s award-winning projects, or the satisfaction of delivering outstanding work to our clients, McMahon has enjoyed accolades and recognition for innovation at every stage of the firm’s growth.
McMahon’s achievements in the last 40 years have created the strongest foundation for growth. By sticking to its core values of unmatched service to clients, a dedication to providing an enjoyable and exciting environment for employees, and embracing innovation in new technology, McMahon is positioned for continued success and a bright, long future.
