Hafer Acquires Illinois Firm

As part of our overarching plan to pursue business expansion, we have acquired hmb ARCHITECTS LLC, an architecture and interior design firm located in Carbondale, Illinois.

The acquisition will empower Hafer to reach new markets and serve new clients with the level of design excellence, client care and employee satisfaction they have prioritized throughout their 43-year history.

Founded in 1995, hmb ARCHITECTS LLC boasts a long reputation of excellence, as evidenced by their impressive suite of clients spanning the United States. With a strong presence in the workplace, civic, education and retail markets, and a meaningful relationship with the federal Army & Air Force Exchange Service, hmb ARCHITECTS LLC has solidified their place in the industry and their role in their community.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for everyone at hmb ARCHITECTS to broaden their services with new skills and an expanded team of design professionals in three additional locations,” said Harlan Bohnsack, founder of hmb ARCHITECTS LLC. “We are thrilled to see what the future offers with this new relationship.”

Hafer President Jeff Justice echoed Bohnsack’s sentiments, saying that he is thrilled to add such skilled professionals to the team.

“We are pleased to forge this partnership with the hmb ARCHITECTS and to welcome them to the Hafer family. Their proven commitment to service and community aligns beautifully with our company culture, and we’re confident that their demonstrated skills and expertise will complement our philosophy for the future.”

The new office will continue to do business as hmb ARCHITECTS LLC as a subsidiary of Hafer, retaining their existing premises and employees.
