Wightman & Associates, Inc. Changes Its Name to Wightman
Wightman and Associates, Inc., with Michigan offices in Allegan, Benton Harbor, and Kalamazoo, has announced a streamlined name change to that of Wightman. The name change is part of a larger refresh of the firm’s brand that includes a new logo and updated web site domain.
“We have used our upcoming 75th anniversary in 2021 as an opportunity to strategically reflect on the tremendous growth Wightman has experienced and to look forward to the expanding future of our firm,” states Wightman President Matt Davis. “We have evolved from a small, regional survey and engineering enterprise into a multi-disciplinary firm serving clients in several states. The updated corporate name and logo aligns better with who we are today while still staying connected to our roots.”
The company was founded in 1946 by G. L. Wightman in St. Joseph, Michigan, specializing in land surveying and civil engineering. Over time, the solo proprietor business grew in size, scope, and geographic reach. Today, the full-service consulting firm employs over 120 professionals who analyze, advise, design, and deliver successful projects in partnership with Government, Education, Commercial and Utility sectors throughout Michigan and the Midwest.
The new Wightman logo includes the tagline, “It’s all about people,” to reflect the company’s mission, values, and goals to serve people and the communities in which it operates.
“The tagline sums up the purpose and culture of Wightman. It aligns with our long-standing emphasis on personal relationships and improving people’s lives through the work we do,” states Davis.
Wightman provides architecture, civil engineering, environmental, and land surveying services through a team of licensed industry experts. Additional complementary services Wightman offers are planning, GIS, landscape architecture, and interior design, as well as newly added high definition laser scanning and drone imaging.
Other recent expansion activities Wightman has completed include a new expanded Allegan office opened in the fall of 2017, and a new, larger location in Kalamazoo opened in November 2018 with grand opening activities scheduled for after the first of the year.
The website and email domain has been changed to gowightman.com. Those wishing to learn more about the firm or to contact a member of the Wightman team are invited to visit the website or call 269.927.0100.
