JACKSON, Miss. – February 15, 2021 – Waggoner Engineering, Inc., a full-service economic development, program management, and engineering firm, is celebrating 45 years of service this year.

Established in 1976 by Joe Waggoner and his wife, Allison, Waggoner Engineering has grown to be one of the nation’s most-recognized civil engineering and infrastructure development firms.

In an interview with the Mississippi Business Journal in 2016, Waggoner said he can’t remember exact details of how he founded the firm, but he certainly knows why.

“I’m a third-generation engineer – my father and grandfather were engineers,” he said. “You might say I grew up thinking like an engineer and in an environment conducive to engineering.”

Today, Waggoner has expanded to 11 offices across five states with over 100 employees, who work to find solutions in civil engineering, transportation, water resources, coastal restoration, and community and economic development, among others. In 2020, Waggoner bolstered its growing utilities division with the acquisition of Applied Engineering & Science Consulting, LLC.

Emad Al Turk, PE, who previously served as Waggoner’s COO for 15 years before re-joining in 2017 as President, said he’s enjoyed watching the firm continue to grow in spite of the current pandemic.

“It is truly gratifying to be surrounded by many of those who played such a significant role in our success,” said Al-Turk. “We are honored to have such talented employees and individuals who have served the company throughout our history and work every day to serve our clients and help advance our efforts in the industry.” This anniversary is really a celebration of all the clients we have assisted along the way and the impact we have made to the communities where we work, live, and play!.”
