Originally from Wayne County, in northeastern Pennsylvania, Founder and Owner Joseph Hunt spent the early part of his professional career in the expanding suburbs of Philadelphia, performing land surveying, civil and environmental engineering, and construction inspection and management. The bulk of his design experience was in designing post-construction stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs), Erosion and Sediment Pollution Control BMPs, public sewer utilities, wastewater treatment plants, Act 537 sewage facilities planning, NPDES and Part II water quality permitting, sanitary sewage pumping stations, septic system design, and drip and spray irrigation effluent disposal systems.
In 2008, Mr. Hunt left employment as Vice President and Manager of Land Development Services at a 50-person firm headquartered in West Chester, Pennsylvania, and entered into a sole proprietorship business with one executed contract and only a verbal commitment of work. In May 2009, Joe and his family moved back to Northeastern Pennsylvania and that same month formed Joe Hunt & Associates.
The company grew rapidly, mostly due to the needs of customers in the natural gas drilling industry. Since 2008, Joe expanded his professional licensure to New York, West Virginia, and Ohio. By 2012, Joe Hunt & Associates was 60+ employees strong and was licensed to do business in Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio and West Virginia. Joe Hunt & Associates became known as JHA Companies.
