Bergmann Associates acquires NC firm

Rochester-based Bergmann Associates has acquired Gantt Huberman Architects, a 26-member architecture firm in Charlotte, N.C.

The acquisition is Bergmann’s 12th regional office and its first in the Carolinas, bringing its total employee count to 375. Other offices are in Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio and Michigan.

The acquisition is consistent with Bergmann’s strategic growth plan, which calls for projected revenue of $100 million by the year 2018.

“Bergmann is planning smart and sensible growth with a goal of further developing our expertise and bench strength needed to better compete with larger global firms,” said CEO Tom Mitchell. “It is the plan that the Charlotte office will expand its current services to include both the retail market as well as the research-and-manufacturing market in the short-term, and eventually into the transit-and-transportation industries.

The acquisition is the second in three years for Bergmann Associates. In 2010, the firm added the Ledy Design Group to its Lansing, Mich., office.
