Olathe, Kan. — Terracon ranks as the 45th largest majority employee-owned company in the U.S., according to the Employee Ownership 100, a list published by the National Center for Employee Ownership (NCEO).

Since 1965, Terracon has grown from a small Iowa geotechnical firm to a large, multifaceted national firm. Terracon has experienced tremendous growth over the last 10 years thanks to the hard work and dedication of its employee-owners. Today, more than 96 percent of our employees are owners.

The list is compiled annually by the NCEO, a private, nonprofit membership and research organization in Oakland, Calif. The 2014 Employee Ownership 100 list includes the nation’s largest companies that are at least 50 percent owned by an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) or other broad-based employee ownership plan. The companies on the list employ approximately 710,000 people worldwide, up from 674,000 in 2013.
