Brand Energy & Infrastructure Services (Brand), a leading global provider of specialized services, announced today it completed the acquisition of multi-craft industrial services provider Gregg Industries, Inc. (Gregg) and its affiliate companies.
Gregg and affiliates, including Merico Abatement Contractors, Inc., started as insulation, asbestos abatement, and heat tracing service companies. Their addition to Brand will strengthen its capabilities as a specialty services contractor, while adding a new service to Brand's portfolio, electrical heat tracing. Gregg's trained professionals provide turn-key design and installation of heat trace systems nationwide.
"A privately-owned operation, Gregg Industries has successfully grown into a strong business in our industry and with the same focus as Brand--which is to consistently deliver clients with safe, reliable and quality solutions and outstanding customer service," said Brand Energy Solutions, LLC President Mark Neas.
"The addition of Gregg will be a great support to our goals and I believe the combination of the services will create value for both companies' existing client bases."
