On Friday, December 30, 2022, Sunrise Engineering acquired the Richfield-based firm, Savage Associates Engineering (Savage). Sunrise and Savage have successfully teamed on projects in central Utah for several years. The firms merged to build upon the strengths of both companies and enhance the services offered to their clients. “We are excited to be teaming up with Sunrise. We feel this merger gives us all, as one entity, more resources to serve our clients better,” said Ryan Savage, President of Savage Associates Engineering. The new employees from Savage will continue to work from their current Richfield location, which has also been acquired by Sunrise, resulting in two Sunrise offices in Richfield. Mark Huntsman, President & CEO of Sunrise Engineering, is very happy about the acquisition, saying, “We’ve greatly enjoyed our relationships with Savage and their employees in the past and we look forward to continuing to build those relationships and working together in this new capacity.”
Savage Associates Engineering was started by Ryan and Troy Savage as Savage Surveying in 2005 after nearly 15 years of performing engineering/land surveying services in the Intermountain West. These two brothers were born and raised in Central Utah but trained and operated in multiple areas throughout the western United States. The company was established to satisfy community and corporate needs for growth by providing dependable surveying and development services throughout Utah. The company then evolved into a multi-disciplinary firm managing various fields of engineering services.
Savage was successful in providing South Central Utah the best value of engineering services in the area. The former company consisted of two owners who both managed projects and were thoroughly involved with the projects proposed, and eight full-time employees who perform a number of tasks in a variety of fields. They knew that by having the owners of the company personally work on their clients’ projects, they could ensure that the clients were receiving the attention necessary to start and finish their project, from obtaining sufficient financing to closing out the final inspection. Savage brings many disciplinary fields of engineering services to the Sunrise team, including civil infrastructure, water resources, road design, and construction (airports), energy, land development, land surveying, architectural design, and construction management.
