Atlas Technical Consultants (“Atlas”), a leading, world-class infrastructure engineering, testing, inspection and program management firm, and ATC Group Services LLC (“ATC”), a leading integrated environmental engineering consulting firm, today announced their plans to merge. The merger brings together the companies’ talented teams, complementary service offerings and national footprints to create the premier provider of infrastructure-based engineering, testing, inspection, certification and compliance services in the country. Both Atlas and ATC are currently backed by Bernhard Capital Partners Management LP (“Bernhard Capital”), a services-focused private equity management firm based in Baton Rouge, LA.
Together Atlas and ATC have a nationwide footprint located in more than 40 states with more than 140 offices and 3,200 employees, serving a variety of public and private sector clients. The combined company, which will retain the Atlas name and be led by current Atlas Chief Executive Officer, L. Joe Boyer, is well-positioned for growth as the merger provides added capabilities in engineering, materials testing, inspection, certification and environmental services, a wider operational footprint and the ability to deliver a more comprehensive suite of services to its diverse client base.
