Jacobs Engineering Group

Their history begins with the company's founding by Joseph J. Jacobs in 1947. Since then, they have gradually evolved from a one-man engineering consultant to the publicly traded Fortune 500 company they are today. About two-thirds of Jacobs' consistent growth comes from organic expansion as they serve the changing and growing needs of their customers. Because they partner with their clients and truly understand their business objectives, they work in the locations and industries where they need them to be; and they position themselves to serve their needs effectively. Another way Jacobs is able to continuously improve and grow is through acquisition. They have acquired more than 70 businesses, and each one has contributed to their reach and capabilities. Together, as Jacobs, they deliver the benefits of a fully integrated global organization. Their rich history guides their growth, and the possibilities are limitless in terms of the company they are yet to become. But a few simple things remain constant throughout times of change: their firm commitment to their relationship based business model; and their focus on safety, quality, and ethics are foundational to who they are.
