Today, we’re announcing our plan to combine Bernhard’s local New Orleans offices and establish our national corporate headquarters in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Bernhard has called Louisiana home for more than 100 years. We have experienced tremendous growth during this time, expanding from a local plumbing contractor into a national, engineering, contracting, and energy solutions firm. As our firm continues to grow, Bernhard’s leadership sought a new headquarters location that would provide increased access and convenience for our team.
“This is an exciting growth period for Bernhard,” says Chief Executive Officer, Ed Tinsley. “This move will help us continue building the next 100 years of Bernhard in Louisiana as we advance our historical lines of business and simultaneously invest in the future of energy technology, efficiency and related services.”
Bernhard will be based in The Galleria building in Metairie, a suburb in the New Orleans metropolitan area. The new office will employ approximately 250 local team members with expectations for continued growth in the coming years.
“New Orleans meets the criteria we sought for our new headquarters,” says Bernhard MCC’s President Philip Catanzaro. “This move will consolidate our growing New Orleans area workforce in one location to allow for greater collaboration and innovation and serve as an essential asset for our continued recruiting efforts.”
The move will take place in late 2019, with Bernhard’s new office expected to open in Metarie beginning in early 2020.
