ORLANDO, Fla. — Kleinfelder is pleased to announce the acquisition of LPG Environmental & Permitting Services, Inc., a firm headquartered in Orlando that offers a diverse set of environmental consulting services. The transaction closed on Dec. 31, 2010, following a due diligence process, respective board approvals and integration planning involving employees from each firm.
‘We are pleased to join forces with a company that has such a strong reputation and record of excellence,’ said Bill Siegel, PE, president and CEO of Kleinfelder. ‘LPG's wealth of knowledge in environmental planning and permitting as well as their reputation for environmental responsibility will only serve to strengthen Kleinfelder's ability to deliver turnkey services to clients across the nation.’

Kleinfelder will provide our clients global resources and a diverse set of services, knowledge and experience. As partners, we will work synergistically to continue providing the innovative solutions our respective clients have come to expect.’
LPG employs 20 people in three Florida locations: Orlando, Jacksonville and Lakeland. Their offerings include a diverse set of environmental planning and permitting services that are key to Florida, such as endangered species evaluations and wetland consulting. LPG will now operate under the Kleinfelder name, providing additional capabilities and resources that will foster growth in the southeast.
