Kansas engineering firm acquires Va. Beach geotech company
Terracon adds to mid-Atlantic presence with Virginia Beach’s GET
On Tuesday, Kansas-based consulting engineering firm Terracon Consultants Inc. announced that it had purchased GET Solutions Inc. for an undisclosed amount.
GET is a geotechnical, environmental and materials testing firm serving public- and private-sector clients throughout the mid-Atlantic. In addition to its Virginia Beach headquarters, GET has another Virginia office in Williamsburg and North Carolina offices in Elizabeth City and Jacksonville. Its services include in-house drilling capabilities and soils and concrete testing laboratories.
“GET has built a strong presence in Virginia and throughout the mid-Atlantic, based not only on technical expertise, but on a strong commitment to outstanding client service,” said Gayle Packer, Terracon president and CEO, in a statement. “Adding GET as a part of Terracon increases our regional bench strength to continue providing nimble, responsive support for our clients’ projects.”
GET’s 95 employees will immediately become part of Terracon, an employee-owned company. The firm will continue to operate locally as GET Solutions Inc., a Terracon Co.
GET joins three other recent Terracon acquisitions in the mid-Atlantic: TAM Consultants Inc. of Williamsburg, in 2021; Skelly and Loy of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, in 2020; and GeoConcepts of Ashburn, in 2017.
Terracon has more than 5,000 employees providing environmental, facilities, geotechnical and materials services from more than 150 offices.
