GE Johnson joined the DPR Construction family of companies. This offers both companies strategic growth and employee development opportunities. GE Johnson will continue to further its presence in the Mountain States by leveraging DPR's global customer relationships. At the same time, employees of both firms will see increased career and growth opportunities.

For customers, it will be business as usual with GE Johnson. GE Johnson and H.W. Houston will maintain their brands, and GE Johnson will continue to operate as its own contracting entity. President & CEO Jim Johnson will remain in his role along with other GE Johnson leaders.

“Even as we’ve grown successfully into new markets, we wanted to engage with a global firm that supports our culture and people and aligns with our values,” Johnson said. “We are elated to announce that we are joining the DPR family of companies. This will provide long term financial assurance, continued leverage of our self-perform capabilities, career opportunities for staff and craft, and access to the latest in technology and delivery methods.”

“We welcome GE Johnson to the DPR family and are excited to be able to better support our customers in the locations where GE Johnson has established itself as one of the best builders,” said George Pfeffer, who serves on DPR’s management committee. “Both our firms see ourselves as builders first. It’s exciting to know that our talented people at both companies will have more opportunities to share their passion for building.”
