SEATTLE, April 25, 2019—SoundEarth Strategies, Inc. (SoundEarth) has acquired EHS-International, Inc. (EHSI). Both companies offer environmental consulting and engineering services. The acquisition is the latest in SoundEarth’s execution of its growth strategy, focused on expansion into new markets through recruitment and acquisitions.
“Our firms really complement each other very nicely,” said Al Davis, CEO at SoundEarth. “Both companies have built success around providing excellent client service, and that will continue to be our top priority.
“EHSI has a strong reputation with the federal government, schools and public agencies. We look forward to growing our partnership in these and other market sectors.”
“It was important for EHSI to find a partner that shares our company values and vision,” said EHSI President Larry Toimil. “This acquisition ensures the long-term future for EHSI. As EHSI graduates from the minority disadvantaged program with this partnership, we look forward to providing more service lines and expanding our reach as a small business.”
The companies will continue to function as separate entities and will continue to operate with their clients, employees and systems.
In addition to pursuing government and public agency work via its acquisition of EHSI, SoundEarth has increased its focus on the industrial sector through strategic hiring from industry and by opening an office near the Tideflats in Tacoma, Washington.
“We certainly anticipate more of these types of transactions in our future,” Davis said. “There are a number of areas where we’ve identified opportunity to diversify our service offerings, our client base, our geographic reach—we’re beginning to develop services in wetlands and climate change, and expanding our stormwater program. Opportunities for adding an office in Portland, Oregon, are very interesting to us.”
Both headquartered in Seattle, SoundEarth and EHSI provide environmental consulting services throughout the Puget Sound region and Pacific Northwest states. Their service offerings include site investigations and remediation, regulatory advocacy and permitting, hazardous materials surveys, due diligence, litigation support, stormwater management and compliance, industrial hygiene services, construction management, air quality, and health and safety planning.
