We both have talented people who strive to deliver excellence in everything they do, and now we have the opportunity to accelerate our growth delivering excellence together,” said Joe McKee, CEO of PARIC Corporation.

The two companies initially will focus on increasing business in Iowa and on the development of HENNING|PARIC as a company which will serve a number of key market segments.

Together, the two businesses intend to blend their technology, expertise and experience to enhance what they can offer to construction projects in the region. “Both firms have talented and dedicated teams focused on exceeding their clients’ expectations and we intend to continue enhancing that experience together,” said Kevin Walker, President of Henning Companies.
