HNTB is recognized as an industry leader in the planning, design, and construction of complex, long-span and movable bridges. Further, HTNB is ranked as one of the top 100 majority employee-owned companies in the U.S. by the National Center for Employee Ownership and has been employee-owned since 1999.

This project is an example of the high level of performance that the 3,500 employee-owners at HNTB are committed to. They recognize that the hard work they put into the company will reap rewards both for themselves and the company as a whole. In addition, HNTB’s employee-owners understand that revenue generated through collective achievements provides critical retirement savings through their ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan).

Congratulations to HNTB and its employee-owners on their award!
