Going forward, Cajun CEO Jacob sees significant room for growth for the firm in the industrial sector. "We've proven that we can handle larger projects," he says. "We see opportunities as both a prime contractor and being able to take on larger packages of work or combination packages."

To help expedite that growth, Jacob says the company's business trajectory has set it on a path to consider merger and acquisition opportunities in the near future to help expand its range of capabilities and geographic footprint.

"So far, our growth has been mostly organic, but we have the means today to accelerate that growth [through mergers and acquisitions]," he says.
