Landpoint Named As One of the Fastest Growing Land Surveying Companies

inc5000smBossier City, LA – For the third year in a row, Landpoint has been named to the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest growing privately-held companies. At number 769 and with more than 590% growth, the company has outpaced other land surveying companies across the nation.

Landpoint is one of Louisiana’s 49 privately held companies to make the list, coming in at number 9 in the state this year. The company has also been listed as the number 5 top engineering firm in the nation. By adding over 150 jobs in three years, Landpoint has demonstrated consistent organic growth.

“We are very excited to be included for a third year on Inc’s list of the fastest growing American companies,” said Chad Souter, Vice President of Landpoint. “While we are thrilled to have cracked the top 1,000 companies, we continue to see substantial growth opportunities for our company in the coming years with what we have built,” Souter added. “Our employees take pride in their ability to provide an exceptional service, and they are incredibly deserving of this recognition.”

The Inc. 5000 ranks businesses in a variety of sectors – from engineering and health care, to communications and finance. In these rankings, company revenue and growth are just two of the considerations.

In addition to being listed in the Inc. 5000, Landpoint was also ranked the number three fastest growing engineering services firm by ZweigWhite and was awarded Deal of The Year by the Association for Corporate Growth upon completion of two acquisitions in 2013 and the creation of a platform for future acquisitions.

“We are thrilled to have placed so high on this year’s list” says James Souter, CEO of Landpoint. “Our team has worked very hard to support and control the growth we’ve been experiencing.”

Landpoint has grown to more than 220 professionals, from land surveyors to licensed professional engineers, who are located across the nation.

The Hot Firm award is the most recent of several accolades presented to Landpoint for 2014. Earlier this year the Association for Corporate Growth awarded Landpoint with the “Deal of the Year” award after successfully creating and executing a long-term acquisition strategy and integration platform. In 2013 Landpoint completed transactions with King Surveyors of Windsor, Colorado and West Company of Midland in Midland, TX.

Landpoint Acquires Two Other Land Surveying Companies, Awarded “Deal of the Year”

Oil and Gas ProjectsLandpoint scored big at the annual D CEO/ACG Mergers & Acquisitions Awards event held May 6 in Dallas, winning the award for “Deal of the Year” in its category.  The award was based on the Landpoint’s recent acquisition of two other land surveying companies: West Company of Midland, LLC. in Midland, Texas and the Fort Collins, Colorado based King Surveyors, LLC., last year.

The company’s deals topped competitors in the category of similar transactions, worth up to $50 million. The company now has more than 220 employees and nine office locations in five states – including its new Midland, Texas regional office with a primary focus on oil & natural gas infrastructure development.

“We are honored to have caught the attention of D CEO and ACG’s Mergers & Acquisitions Awards panel,” said company Vice President Chad Souter. “We were very confident in our initial strategy and it’s exciting to receive recognition from leaders in the M&A industry.”

Landpoint’s strategy included diversifying its client base and geographical exposure through acquisitions that paralleled the organic growth strategy of the company. Landpoint has become a platform for future acquisitions and has automated many processes for integration and development plans. The combined land surveying companies of Landpoint, King Surveyors, and West Company of Midland now hold a significant market share for top production and midstream companies throughout the Eagle Ford and Permian Basin, as well as the Niobrara and Haynesville shale plays.

The awards, presented by D CEO and the Association for Corporate Growth, highlighted four different categories: small, midsize, large and mega deals, as well as a handful of dealmakers for businesses in the North Texas region. The North Texas economy and growth of mergers and acquisitions has come back strong in recent years. The awards focused on 38 deals with a total of $45.7 billion for 2013.
