GPI announces merger with N.J.-based Keller & Kirkpatrick

Babylon, New York-based Greenman-Pedersen Inc. announced on Monday a merger with Keller & Kirkpatrick Inc., a Morris Plains-based civil engineering firm.

Under the deal, K&K and its 35-person team will merge into the GPI organization. GPI first acquired the firm in 1997 and since then, K&K has been providing local private development, municipal, county and state engineering services as well as survey and mapping services throughout New Jersey.

K&K’s Matthew L. Martini, president, will become the executive vice president and branch manager of GPI Morris Plains.

“This merger brings additional depth and strength to our office’s ability to serve our clients and continue our long-term relationships,” Martini said.

“The parent company-subsidiary relationship has worked well for many years performing related, but somewhat different, services to a diverse client mix,” Christer Ericsson, CEO and president of  GPI, said. “This merger allows GPI to continue to grow geographically while providing diversification in the depth of services that we can offer throughout New Jersey, now under the same brand.”
