The Wooten Company, an engineering consulting firm celebrating its 80th anniversary this year, announced on Monday that it has opened a new Regional Office in the Old Salem Historic District of downtown Winston-Salem, NC.
Overseen by Regional Manager John Grey, PE, the office was previously located in Asheboro, NC, from where it served the towns, cities and counties of the Piedmont over the past 18 years. While The Wooten Company will always look back on its time in Asheboro fondly, the move was initiated as the firm continues to grow amidst strong economic momentum in North Carolina. The City of Winston-Salem was chosen for the new location as it offers a centralized location along several primary transportation corridors, as well as amenities of all variety for its citizens to enjoy.
Wooten’s Vice-President, Gary Hartong, said of the move, “We are proud of our reputation for designing critical infrastructure that supports the exciting economic growth in our state, and are equally proud of the close personal relationships that our employees build with our clients. For this office, we sought after the Old Salem area for its proximity to a vibrant downtown, its immediacy to the sister City of Greensboro, and its unequaled access to both our metropolitan and rural clients so that we can provide them our engineering and construction administration services promptly and reliably.”
The Wooten Company is celebrating its milestone anniversary by investing heavily in its geographic coverage to better assist communities in the Carolinas and Virginia as they address today’s demands and prepare for future growth. Since 1936, the firm has proudly provided critical infrastructure engineering to support the health and happiness of the families who call these communities Home.
