Lexington-based Fuller, Mossbarger, Scott & May Engineers (FMSM) has been acquired by Stantec, a design and consulting firm that has some 7,500 employees operating from more than 100 locations throughout North America.
FMSM has more than 300 employees, most of whom are located in Kentucky. The company also has offices in Ohio, Missouri, Indiana, Georgia and Tennessee.
Financial details of the deal have not been disclosed.
The addition of FMSM will create a new region for Stantec in the area of Kentucky and Tennessee as well as a new practice area in geotechnical engineering, both of which will be based out of the Lexington office.
“FMSM adds expertise in several specialty engineering areas, including dams, levees, and underwater structures that complement our existing services,” said Stantec President and CEO Tony Franceschini. “In addition, FMSM enhances our water resource capabilities and provides improved access to U.S. federal clients such as the Corps of Engineers and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).”
FMSM offers a wide scope of services in civil, environmental, geotechnical, structural and water resources engineering as well as specialized and targeted areas in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), particularly in floodplain mapping. The firm also has an integrated materials testing laboratory and drilling operation to support its engineering projects.
