We’re excited to announce that Hope-Amundson has joined Coffman Engineers. Hope-Amundson is a full-service San Diego-based structural engineering firm with a deep bench of licensed engineers. They have built a celebrated legacy and reputation, and we are humbled to continue that legacy as they join the Coffman team.
When Coffman and Hope-Amundson began talking about the possibility of a merger, it was evident that the two firms have similar cultures committed to our team members’ well-being and are inspired by similar visions focused on the success of our clients.
Previously announced on August 31st, 2017, Hope-Amundson signed a letter of intent to merge with Coffman. Since that time, the firms have come to a merger agreement that aligns with Hope-Amundson’s goals to find a transition plan that works for their staff and clients, and was the right cultural fit.
“It was obvious that both firm cultures align closely and that was something very important to us,” said Chuck Hope, Principal, Hope-Amundson.
As a combined team, the merger presents very exciting things to look forward to:
“The best deals are the win-win. We will strategically help Coffman with their Southern California presence and for Hope-Amundson, this allows us to join a larger firm, offer our clients more services, and look for opportunities in other areas,” said Jim Amundson, Principal, Hope-Amundson.
We hope you will join us in celebrating this major milestone as it provides an exciting opportunity for YOU; our clients, partners, team members, and friends.
