President’s Message: Navigating Growth and Market Conditions
As we prepare to enter a new year, Evans has many things to look back on and be proud of. Together, we achieved a lot and while 2021 challenged us, it also showed how strong we are as a company. We are ending this year, having had one of the most historic in our company’s history, and I want to take a moment to express my gratitude for everyone’s support and reflect on milestones accomplished.
2021 was a defining moment. Not only did we celebrate 20 years in business, but we will also close the year at nearly $1.2 billion in annual revenue. While achieving one billion is huge, this growth is sustainable and a reflection of both market conditions and a strategic, yet cumulative, effort from the top down to expand operations.
The year began by opening an office in Charlotte and Raleigh, NC – cementing Evans’ commitment to grow our business while having a local presence. The leadership and teams built in both locations are discovering new inroads and opportunities and I can’t wait to see where they take Evans next.
Our growth journey is further capitalized by outgrowing company headquarters in Alpharetta, GA and then building a space that would be ready in 2022. We accomplished this goal and start fresh in a new office, built by Evans, at 3050 Northwinds Parkway, Suite 200 on January 3rd. What a great way to welcome the new year with space to host business partners and clients alike.
I am particularly proud of how our team handled and communicated the shortages in supply chain this year. Navigating the complexities of steel, concrete, joist and deck, and roofing demands were not easy. We stayed educated on the economic climate and put measures in place that mitigated delays in schedules and the delivery of projects. While there is still some uncertainty ahead with products and their supply, our team will stay prepared to take advantage of any, and all, opportunities that come our way.
With 2021 successes, we have many expectations for next year. Our focus will continue to be on increasing the depth and breadth of projects in Advanced Technology, Life Sciences, and Manufacturing markets. We will also bring noticeable advancements in our service delivery, streamline communications, and further our safety program.
There are a great number of exciting things in the pipeline, with undoubtedly more obstacles to overcome, but we have the right team in place to succeed. Your commitment with Evans’ combined talents and strengths are what makes us a successful company.
Our defining year is defined by YOU!
