Artera Remains at #7 on the Top 600 Specialty Contractors List; #3 for Utility Contractors

Engineering News-Record (ENR) is regarded as one of the top publications for the construction industry, dating back more than 100 years. Each year, ENR publishes the Top 600 Specialty Contractor List, based on annual revenue. Artera remains in the top ten once again at #7. The list also captures the Top 50 Contractors in various sub-categories. Artera is listed in the Utility Contractor sub-category and notched up one level at #3!

“It’s great to continue to be recognized on the ENR’s Top 600 Contractor List,” said Brian Palmer, CEO of Artera. “While our ranking overall may not have changed year-over-year, with the addition of Feeney Utility Services Group, K.R. Swerdfeger Construction, and the creation of our newest operating company, Versiv Solutions, we have grown both in terms of team members and capabilities to be #3 on the Utility list. I’m really proud of our team.”

While 2020 was a challenging year for the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we never wavered on our commitment to customers and our focus on our core values of safety, quality, commitment, and reputation. We also responded to help communities impacted by numerous hurricanes, snowstorms, and other natural disasters.

As part of the Top Ten in the industry, Artera will continue to focus on growth and creating endless opportunities to make a lasting impact with our customers and the communities where we live and work.

The Artera story is still being written, but cementing our spot at #7 for the second year in a row on the ENR list is a great way to showcase our growth and achievements over the last year. More opportunities lie ahead and we’re excited to see where the remainder of 2021 and 2022 lead us.
