Scrolling through PSMJ’s website I found an article about A/E Profit Margins and how these margins have been on the rise for the three consecutive years. 2014 saw average profits of 14.3%, the highest they have been in six years.
While this is good news, I don’t get too excited about a 14.3% net profit and prefer to see profits in the upper teens or low to mid 20’s. Remember that this is the average of firms and the average is simply “the best of the worst and the worst of the best”.
Founder and CEO of PSMJ Resources Frank A. Stasiowski, FAIA, also believes that the 14.3% shouldn’t “…be an acceptable profit margin at all for an A/E firm,” “There are plenty of A/E firms that can and do deliver profit margins far higher than this.”
So does your firm measure up? How are you performing compared to the rest of the world? Do you want to reach higher profit margins? Of course you do.
