Twin brothers named party chiefs at engineering and surveying firm

James and Richard Seal have been promoted to party chiefs at D.R. Griffin & Associates, an engineering, land surveying and drafting firm in Grand Junction.

The twin brothers are in charge of collecting survey information from oil and natural gas fields.

The Seals joined D.R. Griffin & Associates in May 2008. They both attended Western Colorado Community College and earned associate’s degrees in computer-aided drafting.

The two have worked together since they were 8 years old, including stints with family owned day care and plumbing and heating businesses in Fruita.

Richard Bullen, survey manager at D.R. Griffen & Associates, praised the Seals. “I’m amazed with the maturity of the twins and the dedication they show to their jobs. It is unbelievable how well they get along with each other.”
