Profitable Growth in 2020

Nexus grew its annual revenue 12% in 2020 and celebrated a successful 15th year in business despite headwinds from COVID, continuing to deliver exceptional service and support for its clients in oil refining, petroleum midstream, manufacturing, chemicals, and energy. In 2020 the company expanded its energy expertise with a number of strategic hires and added to its portfolio of offerings for clients producing and using electrical energy. Energy Services are a priority for Nexus in 2021, as it meets the growing demand for project support around decarbonization efforts, modernization of electrical infrastructure, sustainable design, cogeneration, renewables, and the growing importance of energy storage systems.


Strategic Hiring and Expansion

In 2020, Nexus grew its team by more than 20% across disciplines and expanded its offices in Toledo to better serve a growing number of clients in Northwestern Ohio, Central Michigan, and the Detroit metropolitan area. The firm’s multi-year growth in revenue and hiring in the state helped fuel the company’s upward movement on Crain’s list of Northeast Ohio engineering firms.


“Nexus grew profitably in 2020 while investing in the talent and new capabilities that will ensure ongoing success in the years to come,” said President Jeffrey Herzog. “We are proud of our momentum in Crain’s rankings, and we are honored by the trust our clients continue to place in us.”
