GATE Featured in Houston Chronicle

For Grant Gibson, Founder and CEO of GATE Inc., it's hard to believe that it has been 15 years since GATE was started on Michigan Street in Houston with a plastic table and desktop computer from Sam's Club.

"I was 28 years old with a Nokia phone, AOL dial-up, and the price of oil was about $15/BBL. My mom loaned me the money to start GATE and she doesn't let me forget it either, even to this day," Gibson said. Fifteen years later, GATE is an award-winning oil and gas engineering consulting firm offering numerous services in the areas of commissioning, engineering, marine services and marine construction around the globe.

GATE Advances in the Hot Firm Rankings

GATE has been awarded joint 3rd place the prestigious ZweigWhite Hot Firm Competition for the 2010 to 2013 period. Hot Firm is a competition that ranks the top 100 engineering, consulting and architecture companies in the US in terms of their growth over the previous three years. The rankings identify firms that have outperformed the economy and competitors to become leaders in their chosen fields. This is evaluated as a function of percentage and dollar growth to normalize across smaller and larger companies.

GATE Ranked #19 in the Zweig Letter Hot Firm List for 2013!

GATE is ranked #19 in the Zweig Letter Hot Firm List for 2013! This contest recognizes the top 100 fastest growing consultant firms (architecture, engineering & environmental) in the country. The firms that compete are ranked based on revenue growth (percentage and dollar) over a 3-year period.

In the coming days, The Zweig Letter will publish a special Hot Firm Issue that will include the complete list of the 100 firms which will kick-off a national press campaign promoting the award.

This award is a testament of the effort, dedication and contribution of everyone at GATE to our success.

We feel proud of this achievement and ensure that the good work is continued, and strive for more success in the future!
