PRLog - June 14, 2011 - Green Bay, Wis. – Engineering and environmental consulting firm GAI Consultants expands its Midwest operations by acquiring Wisconsin-based EnPower, LLC.
GAI acquires EnPower in Wisconsin
GAI’s latest acquisition extends its services to a total of 21 offices across 10 states in the Midwest Northeast, and Southeastern U.S. Currently a 750-person, multidiscipline firm, GAI has more than tripled its presence in the United States during the past decade, serving clients in the energy, transportation, real estate, water, municipal, government, healthcare, education, and industrial markets.
“GAI and EnPower are a great fit of clients, staff, and cultures,” offers Andrew Nelson, former EnPower president and Senior Director of GAI’s Wisconsin Operations. “The Midwest is a vibrant region with a lot of opportunity, and I’m excited to share our experience and bring new capabilities to our clients.”
Located in Green Bay and Mayville, Wis., EnPower is an energy and environmental firm whose key clients are involved in electric transmission and generation. With staff now in Wisconsin – an area with significant demand for energy infrastructure development – GAI plans to pursue electric transmission, gas pipeline, petroleum, and renewable energy work.
“I am committed to growing our environmental services and support in the Midwest Region by bringing in new energy work, especially in states where GAI hasn’t worked in the past,” explains Thomas Cicero, P.E., GAI Vice President and Midwest Regional Manager.
In response to GAI’s growing Midwest operations, the firm expects to hire new staff and relocate GAI-Green Bay and GAI-Mayville to new office spaces in the next few months.
