LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Donan Engineering Co., Inc. today announced plans to open a new office in Fargo, North Dakota. Donan will begin offering forensic investigative services from our new Fargo office on May 1, 2012. This office will represent the firm's first foray into the state of North Dakota.
"North Dakota is an underserved market where many of our customers struggle to find qualified, local experts," says Kevin B. Abell, Donan Engineering's chief sales and marketing officer. "Our goal is to eliminate that issue by having a local office that provides our complete array of services. We are very excited about the prospect of having an office in North Dakota, as it's a natural transition for us from our current location in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Our confidence level that we will be able to consistently provide exceptional customer service and turnaround throughout North and South Dakota is extremely high."
Abell went on to say, "We are passionate about listening and responding to the business needs of our customers. Our opening of a North Dakota location is proof positive that we are not only listening, but that we are taking that information and working to create solutions."
Donan Engineering offers consumers a single source for forensic engineering investigations and fire origin & cause investigations. The firm offers a wide array of services falling under the main categories of structural engineering investigations, fire and explosion origin & cause investigations, roofing investigations, and component testing.
Donan Engineering is a third-generation, family-owned engineering firm that was founded in 1947 in Madisonville, Kentucky.

In 2005, the firm relocated its company headquarters to Louisville, Kentucky.
With the addition of the new Fargo office, Donan Engineering will have 48 offices located throughout 26 states. Currently, the firm has approximately 210 employees, and that number is anticipated to grow to near 280 employees by the end of 2012.
