Global engineering and infrastructure firm CH2M Hill has announced a rebranding and name change, with the company adopting the simpler name CH2M.
CH2M was established in Oregon, United States, nearly 70 years ago by three engineers and their professor to solve local water challenges. The company’s brand name is a nod to these founders “ Cornell, Howland, Hayes and Merryfield “ literally “CH2M”. “Through the years, CH2M has evolved from a regional engineering and consulting firm associated with first-of-a-kind projects to a global leader associated with some of the largest, best-known infrastructure programs for public and private clients,” said CH2M Chairman and Chief Executive Jacqueline Hinman. Hinman said that the time was right for CH2M to make this move. “The last time we rebranded the company was in the 1990s,” she continued. “Since that time, CH2M has grown from 5,000 to 25,000 employees, working in more than 50 countries and with annual revenues of almost $US6 billion.”
