SAN DIEGO, California – The Kleinfelder Group, Inc., a leading engineering, design, construction management, construction materials inspection and testing, and environmental professional services firm, announced today that it has acquired Poggemeyer Design Group (PDG) and its subsidiaries. The transaction, which closed on October 13, 2020, bolsters Kleinfelder’s existing service offerings and accelerates growth in new geographic areas.
“We are excited to expand our business in the Midwest and strengthen our existing operations in Nevada with the acquisition of PDG,” said Kleinfelder President and CEO Louis Armstrong. “In addition to adding technical expertise to core Kleinfelder services such as design, engineering, and construction management, PDG’s strong reputation and longstanding client relationships will accelerate Kleinfelder’s growth in strategic geographies and position the firm for expansion in new markets.”
Founded in 1968, PDG provides a full suite of design services and disciplines, including engineering (water and wastewater, transportation, civil, structural, forensic, mechanical, and electrical), surveying, architecture, planning, environmental operations services, construction management, and project finance consulting. PDG is well positioned in the federal, state, and private infrastructure sectors and has continued to achieve robust growth as a result of excellent project delivery, a diverse client portfolio, and a leading team of technical experts. The acquisition is the culmination of discussions that began in 2019.
With the close of the transaction, PDG and its subsidiaries will operate as one Kleinfelder division under the direction of PDG Board Chairman Jack Jones and the current management team. After a successful integration period into Kleinfelder, PDG’s Nevada and Midwest operations will merge with Kleinfelder’s Central Division and East Division operations, respectively.
“Kleinfelder is an industry leader with integrated service offerings that complement PDG’s strong technical capabilities,” Jones stated. “I’m optimistic about the momentum our combined strengths and resources will generate as we continue to deliver exceptional services to our existing clients and provide employees with new opportunities for professional growth.”
Kleinfelder’s Growth Continues
Led by Louis Armstrong, the PDG stock purchase is Kleinfelder’s third acquisition within the last year, following the acquisitions of substantially all assets of Garcia and Associates and the environmental, geotechnical and construction materials and testing service lines of Advantage Engineers. Kleinfelder remains focused on driving a strategic plan centered on significant growth through acquisition and organically, with the goal of providing solutions that improve clients’ transportation, water, energy, and other private infrastructure.
