Huge crowd at the Poplar Bluff boil
Things were hot and spicy at the Poplar Bluff office with Schultz Surveying & Engineering hosting a Cajun Shrimp Boil Thursday night. Over 300 business and community leaders from the region attended the festivities.

Owner Stan Schultz said, “Business continues to grow in our Southeast Missouri offices. Just 15 years ago we started off in a one-room building down the road, and now we are giving back to the folks who have been with us and supported our efforts all of these years. We love working in rural Missouri and to have so many community leaders show up and help us celebrate another great year of business was exciting.”

The festivities started at 5:00 pm with several people already waiting for the first batch of shrimp to finish cooking. “The SSE folks sure know how to cook Cajun style. They put on a great party with some outstanding food,” added State Representative Steve Cookson

While the slow economy has negatively affected many Missouri businesses, SSE was just recognized as one of the fastest growing companies by Inc. 500|5000. Marketing Director Rodney Jetton says they are bucking that trend, “Because our company listens to the needs and concerns of community leaders, we don’t try to tell them what to do. Our engineers know the rules and are used to working with USDA and DNR officials. They are experts at finding funding and designing projects that meet the community’s needs at the lowest possible price. Our projects consistently meet the short and long range government requirements while saving taxpayers money.”

their food.  Looks good!
Schultz took a few moments to introduce two of the new engineers at SSE. David Stinson and Tim Southards recently left the Missouri Department of Nature Resources and joined SSE. Schultz recognized them and mentioned how helpful their backgrounds will be to the communities needing help with water and sewer systems in Southeast Missouri.

The night’s activities also included several door nice prizes including a Remington 870 shotgun, a bionic fishing pole and an Apple iPad. Judy Davis from the Ripley County Water District # 1 won the iPad, while Sandra Bates from Eagle Wings Construction walked away with the fishing pole and Kim Hill from Contech took home the shotgun. SSE Engineer Tim Southards commented, “Seeing folks enjoy the food, and having fun made the whole party a success! 2012 is shaping up to be our biggest year ever and getting to say thanks to all our customers and visiting with our elected officials was very enjoyable.”
