Davey Resource Group, Inc. (DRG), a subsidiary of The Davey Tree Expert Company, has purchased the assets of EEE Consulting, Inc. (3e), of Virginia.
Founded in 1998, 3e operates in the Richmond and Blacksburg areas and provides environmental and engineering services to the public and private sectors. The acquisition was made by Wetland Studies and Solutions, Inc. (WSSI), which is a subsidiary of DRG. The 3e offices in Mechanicsville and Blacksburg, Virginia, will become new offices for WSSI, also based in Virginia.
“3e brings a broad range of expertise and experience partnering with municipal and government clients that will enhance the environmental consulting services WSSI offers to clients in Virginia,” says Ken Joehlin, vice president and general manager, DRG Environmental Consulting. “This acquisition also strengthens Davey’s commitment to providing diverse consulting solutions to our clients.”
Like Davey, 3e has been employee owned. Davey has been employee owned since 1979, and is the ninth-largest employee-owned firm in the U.S. 3e has 36 employees working out of offices in Richmond, Blacksburg and Newport News. All employees will continue employment under the WSSI brand. Andrew Kassoff, president of 3e, will continue as director of WSSI.
