MYR Group went public in 2008, joining the NASDAQ under the symbol MYRG. Facing the challenging marketing at that time, MYRG avoided the traditional process of offering its shares via an initial stock offering and instead registered for resale nearly 20 million shares of its common stock held by principals. It began trading at $16 per share.

MYR Group was originally traded on the New York Stock Exchange from 1996 to 2000, but was then acquired by GPU Inc., which was then bought by FirstEnergy Corp. ArcLight Capital Partners took control of the company in 2005, but exited its majority ownership in 2007[5].

MYR Group’s oldest subsidiary, The L.E. Myers Co., was founded in 1891. But MYR Group itself was not established until 1995 when L.E. Myers joined Sturgeon Electric and Harlan Electric to form the corporation.

In 2000, MYR Group acquired Great Southwestern Construction, followed by E.S. Boulos[6] and High Country Line Construction in 2015, Western Pacific Enterprises in 2016[7], Huen Electric in 2018[8], and CSI Electrical Contractors in 2019[9]. MYR Energy Services, Inc. was created in 2009 under the name MYR Transmission Services, Inc. and rebranded to its current name in 2020[10].
