Garver Acquires Kansas Firm

Garver of North Little Rock announced Wednesday that it has acquired Ruggles & Bohm, an engineering and design services firm based in Wichita, Kansas.

Garver has named Ruggles & Bohm’s president, Chris Bohm,  as transportation team leader of the new Garver location. As Bohm serves as the firm's point of contact for the Wichita office, its 12 employees will transition immediately into a Garver footprint that includes nearly 500 employees at 24 offices in 10 states.

Garver President and CEO Dan Williams said in news release, “Bringing this accomplished team into the Garver family will only strengthen us both as we continue to expand our services and provide our employees with the quality benefits they deserve.”

Bohm said in the release, “This transition combines our local expertise with a staff of nationally recognized engineers that will provide our clients with a level of service not before possible, and our employees with unparalleled benefits and growth opportunities.”

Garver, which is already working with the Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport, now has three Kansas offices. It has two in Wichita and one in Overland Park.
