Highly-Reputable Companies Join Terracon

Terracon welcomes three engineering companies to our operations in the Southeast—Gallet & Associates, Inc., Aquaterra Engineering, and WPC, Inc. The acquisitions allow the company to further expand its service offerings and geographic presence to clients in the Southeast.

All three companies will retain their names and employees but will operate as part of Terracon. With this significant expansion, Terracon now has a total of 35 offices serving the states of North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi, and more than 100 offices nationwide providing geotechnical, environmental, construction materials engineering and testing, and facilities services.

Gallet & Associates, Inc. is a 20-year-old company headquartered in Birmingham, AL. They have 148 employees and 13 offices, located in Alabama, Tennessee, Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi.

Aquaterra Engineering, with roots back to 1961, is headquartered in Baton Rouge, LA. They have more than 100 employees and five offices in five states (Louisiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, and Alabama).

Founded in 1993, WPC, Inc. has grown to five offices and more than 140 employees. They are headquartered in Charleston, SC, with offices in South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.

As a result, clients will experience enhanced benefits of working with Terracon, including significantly more resources in the Southeast that provide the ability to quickly mobilize staff to support changes in workload and project demands. Additionally, it provides the ability to take on larger and more complex assignments in the Southeast, including multiple sites simultaneously.
