They are highly regarded by their clients and peers in the industry, and they are simply good people,” said Sanjay Agrawal, PE, SE, President and CEO of AG&E. “The acquisition of SDLLC and Balata represents the culmination of one of our long-term goals of providing structural design of steel buildings that is seamlessly integrated with structural steel detailing and fabrication packages. The value this will bring to our clients nationwide will be tremendous.”
