Dennis Group Named the Largest Food and Beverage Design Firm in the United States for Third Consecutive Year

Company maintains rank with strong focus on national and international growth

Springfield, Massachusetts July 12, 2017 – Dennis Group, a full-service planning, architecture, engineering and construction management firm that works exclusively with food manufacturers, was named the number one food and beverage design firm for the third consecutive year by Engineering News Record (ENR), the premier trade publication for the construction industry.

ENR’s Top 500 list ranks contractors, both private and public, according to revenue for design services performed in 2016. Dennis Group maintained the top spot in the food and beverage category for the third straight year.

“When constructing or renovating a facility, it is imperative that food processors work with a firm that understands the nuances of sanitary design” affirms Dennis Group’s CEO, Tom Dennis. “Food safety is always a top priority for our clients, and creating a hygienic space and processing systems that are optimized to prevent contamination starts in the earliest design phases.”

Celebrating its thirtieth anniversary, Dennis Group has provided professional services to most of the 100 largest food companies in the United States as well as hundreds of smaller private companies and start-ups. The company recently bolstered its expansion efforts with the opening of a new office in São Paulo, Brazil that will cater to the growing South American market.
