ROWE celebrates Golden Anniversary

FLINT — ROWE Professional Services Company is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

In 1962, a young Dave Rowe founded Rowe Engineering and Surveying Services. Ironically, one of Dave’s first offices was within a few blocks of ROWE’s current headquarters in downtown Flint.

Dave’s original philosophy of doing what’s best for the client in the long term, getting involved personally, and giving back to our communities still stands today.

ROWE truly appreciates the opportunity to team with fantastic clients for the past five decades and ardently looks forward to providing “large firm resources with personal attention” throughout the 21st century.

ROWE is a full-service professional firm specializing in civil engineering, surveying, aerial photography/mapping, landscape architecture, planning, and land development.

The company’s headquarters is in Flint; additional offices are located in Lapeer, Mt. Pleasant, Grayling, and the tri-cities area, and Myrtle Beach, SC. — G.G.
