Big news from our Florida Chapter this month. KMI International is proud to share that they are a 13th Annual GrowFL Florida Companies to Watch Honoree! From 71 Finalists, 50 Honorees were selected based on growth, innovation, response to adversity and community involvement. GrowFL Florida Companies to Watch honors impressive second-stage companies from throughout the state for developing valuable products and services, creating quality jobs, enriching communities, and broadening new industries throughout Florida.

KMI is an early-stage ESOP company with 25 employees, founded in 1999. From project and construction management, to cost estimating and scheduling, to property condition assessments, KMI helps clients deliver successful construction projects from concept through completion as a trusted partner. They start by identifying your budget and project goals through their extensive estimating process, providing cost clarity and potential alternatives for savings. From there they manage projects to success by acting as an extension of the client, keeping schedules on course and projects out of the “money pit” category, thus providing a means for higher return on investment.

In a recent interview by GrowFL, KMI International CEO John Manning describes what the future holds for KMI, now celebrating 25 years in business. “Our focus is to continue to expand and double or more in size by growing not only in Florida but globally. We are currently pursuing work across the United States and in the Middle East as our experience in themed entertainment cost estimating has pulled clients to us who need our expertise. The ongoing growth of our ESOP is starting to pull some great talent that will only fuel our growth in multiple areas."
