History

Fluor was founded in 1912 as an engineering and construction firm in the western United States. In the 1920s, Fluor expanded into the realm of oil & gas, building factories and refineries and patenting new technologies. During World War II and the 1940s, the company experienced rapid growth and added power and chemical fields to its arsenal. Fluor continued to develop these industries and worked on many large projects such as the Alaskan pipeline in the 1970s and held Engineering-News Record’s number one engineering and construction company title in 1987. Since the 1990s Fluor has seen great international expansion fueled by petrochemical, infrastructure, and environmental projects.

History

Exp Global was conceived in 2011 when the family of companies formerly known as Trow Global was renamed. Trow Global began its engineering history in 2005 when Northland Engineering, a company in Ontario, joined Trow. The firm added structural engineering in 2005, expanded land development and energy services in 2006, several firms specializing in mechanical, electrical, civil, and environmental engineering in 2008, and two consulting firms in 2009 . These acquisitions have expanded the range and variety of its engineering services. To date the firm is still focused primarily in Canada and the United States, but also has offices in Brazil, Vietnam, and Algeria.

It continued to grow in these fields of engineering and expand to new realms and acquired its first US office in Phoenix, Arizona in 1991. Since opening it has opened many more offices and broadened its work to include all aspects of civil engineering.
