In July 2020, TGC Engineering, LLC was acquired by Davey Resource Group, Inc. (DRG), a wholly owned subsidiary of The Davey Tree Expert Company. Founded in 1880 in Kent, Ohio, The Davey Tree Expert Company is the country's premier provider of arboricultural, horticultural, and environmental services.
The firm and DRG have a longtime partnership in place and have worked together on multiple projects spanning nearly 10 years.
“We are excited for the employees of TGC as we welcome them into the Davey family,” said Ken Joehlin, vice president and general manager, DRG Environmental Consulting. “TGC has been a leader in the field and their experience, combined with Davey’s scientific and technical leadership, strengthens Davey’s commitment to our clients across the region. This acquisition also expands the range of services we can offer to our clients.”
As part of DRG, TGC will continue providing civil site engineering, water resource engineering, construction surveying and topographic services in Ohio and surrounding states.
TGC founder and owner Travis Crane will stay on to lead DRG’s engineering services in Ohio and the Midwest and to ensure a successful transition of employees and clients to DRG.
Crane said both DRG and TGC share a passion for creating an excellent client experience and employee development.
“We know the people at DRG really well, and it is a great opportunity to help us grow our business segment under the DRG umbrella,” Crane said. “Our teams also share a strong work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit that makes this partnership a great fit.”
