BL Companies is honored to announce that it has been named one of the Best Places to Work in PA for 2013. BL Companies is an employee-owned, multi-disciplinary architecture, engineering, environmental and land surveying firm providing services to public and private clients.

Companies from across Pennsylvania entered the two-part process to determine the 100 Best Places to Work in PA.

Best Companies Group managed the overall nomination and survey process and determined the top companies and the final ranking.

“To have been selected as a best place to work truly reflects the commitment of our employee-owners to serve our clients,” remarked Mark Koellner, Director of Environmental Sciences. Mike Lozanoff, Director of Engineering, Mid-Atlantic Region, added, “It is this continued dedication and enthusiasm which is reinforced throughout a supportive workplace environment that sets BL apart.”

“I couldn’t be more proud of our employee-owners throughout the company and especially pleased to win this recognition in Pennsylvania,” said Carolyn Stanworth, President and Chief Executive Officer.
