SINCE 1947, THE DONAN NAME HAS BEEN SYNONYMOUS WITH INTEGRITY

The seeds of Donan were planted in 1947 with the small company John G. Donan, P.E., Civil and Mining Engineering. Soon after, John Donan Sr. partnered with his brother David to form Engineers Drilling Co., which would provide geology and exploratory work for the growing mining industry in Indiana and Kentucky.

IN 1964, DONAN'S FOOTPRINT CONTINUES TO GROW

The company grew both physically and in reputation. In 1964, John Donan Jr. joined his father’s business, specializing in soil and foundation investigations. Throughout the next two decades, Donan’s footprint grew. Today, several large structures and infrastructures designed by Donan can be found throughout the Midwest.

 

IN 1987, DONAN ENGINEERING'S LARGEST CLIENT BOUGHT THE COMPANY

John Donan Jr. negotiated to keep a small satellite office with six employees and moved his offices to a small house in Jasper, Indiana. Shortly after, business took off, and more space was needed to grow. In the late 1990s, Donan opened another office in Evansville, Indiana, as well as new offices in Louisville and Indianapolis, that would focus solely on forensic investigations.

THE FORENSIC ENGINEERING BUSINESS ACHIEVED UNPARALLELED SUCCESS

John Donan Jr.’s son Lyle, himself a forensic engineer, came to work for his father in Louisville in 2000. As he paid his dues working in the field, the forensic engineering business achieved unparalleled success. This boom allowed Donan to expand its offerings to include fire investigation and component testing, both of which became integral parts of its key business.

DONAN IS EXCITED FOR THE FUTURE

Lyle Donan, who took up the mantle of President and CEO from his father, has continued to grow Donan into an innovative company that evolves with a changing industry. The last decade has seen technological advancements in investigations, integrations providing service and process solutions, and partnerships influencing the entire industry of property services. We look forward to what the future brings!
