Commonwealth Associates Inc. has expanded to Central Ohio with an office in Gahanna.

The Jackson, Mich.-based engineering firm, which specializes in electric power delivery design, said it has hired eight employees for the office and the employee-owned firm is looking to recruit others.

⿿We combine the experience and capacity of a large firm, with the energy, attentiveness and accessibility of a startup because of the ownership,⿝ Michael Riggins, a senior project manager in the Columbus office, said in a press release.

The office is at 670 Morrison Road, Suite 240. The phone number is 614-935-1010. An open house is slated for this Thursday.

⿿While we operate nationally, we also think locally, which is why we are especially proud to demonstrate our continuing commitment to the Midwestern economy by opening our second Ohio office,⿝ Commonwealth President Dennis DeCosta said in the release.

Commonwealth Associates also has offices in Mount Vernon, Wash., Atlanta, Dayton and Roanoke, Va.
