PEPM Group, an engineering services firm based in Tulsa, is relocating its Fayetteville office to a larger building.

The company paid $2.35 million for the 10,000-square-foot building at 1088 E. Millsap Road. Fayetteville-based company Slim Chickens was the previous owner. Slim Chickens housed its corporate offices in the building until relocating to a larger office building on East Millsap last year.

Cameron Clark with Bennett Commercial Real Estate in Rogers represented the buyer. David Erstine and Hunter Groce with CBRE in Fayetteville represented the seller.

PEPM Group’s previous Fayetteville office was in leased space at 300 N. College Ave. Founded in 2010 by owner Yi Zhang, the company focuses on designing meat and poultry processing plants and working in the oil and gas industry. Its services include engineering, 3D modeling, detailed drawings and project management. The company opened a Fayetteville office in 2021.

“As The PEPM Group expands and broadens our business portfolio, we are excited to contribute to the financial growth and strength in Northwest Arkansas,” said Zhang, the company’s president and CEO.

PEPM Group has about 20 employees. The Fayetteville office on East Millsap will initially have seven engineers with more jobs added later this year.
