Arora Engineers: The #1 Minority-owned Business in the Philadelphia Metro Area
Arora is very excited and proud to be ranked #1 on the Philadelphia Business Journal’s Minority-owned Businesses list for 2019! This is Arora’s 5th consecutive appearance on this list of Ethnic Minority-owned Businesses in Greater Philadelphia ranked by their previous year’s revenue, and our first time in the top spot.
“This is an amazing recognition of my family’s personal and professional journey in this industry and in US business,” says Manik K. Arora, President & CEO. “We have grown considerably over the past 33 years as a minority and family-owned business and we have our sights set on the opportunities and innovations that will bring us continued growth in the future.”
Arora Engineers, Inc. was founded in 1986 by Manik’s father, Manohar (Mike) Arora, MS, PE, shortly after immigrating to the United States. Mike’s first office was in the family’s basement and he initially only specialized in electrical engineering. Additional services were added quickly as we grew, including mechanical, plumbing, fire alarm and suppression, and security/special systems engineering. Under Manik’s leadership, becoming President & CEO in 2006, the company has expanded to 14 offices across the United States, over 200 employees, and three subsidiary companies, Arora Systems Group, LLC®, Arora Technology Group, LLC®, and Electronic Data, Inc. (EDI).
Congratulations to all the businesses that were recognized this year!
