Thompson Engineering, a multi-disciplined engineering firm with offices in eight Southeastern states, announced today the acquisition of Barry A. Vittor & Associates. Vittor & Associates is a nearly 20-person environmental research and consulting firm known for its laboratory services in benthic ecology and its broad experience in wetland assessment and restoration.
“The Vittor team is one of the most sought-after firms in the nation for projects involving bottom-dwelling invertebrates, and is highly regarded along the Gulf Coast,” said John Baker, CEO of Thompson Engineering. “In addition, the Vittor team’s talents in wetland delineation, permitting, and restoration will enhance our environmental service lines, particularly in the industrial and transportation markets where we’re seeing significant growth.”
Vittor and Associates was founded in 1977 and like Thompson Engineering, is headquartered in Mobile, Ala. The acquisition was effective November 1.
“We’ve been partnering with Thompson Engineering for more than 45 years and in that time, have come to know Thompson as a high-quality organization that cares for its clients and employees,” said Barry Vittor, owner of Vittor & Associates. “Joining Thompson will bring incredible value to our staff and clients and I’m excited about the opportunities ahead.”
Thompson Engineering is part of Thompson Holdings, which acquired Meyer Engineers of Metairie, La. and the Alabama operations of Burk-Kleinpeter in 2022. Thompson Holdings is also parent company to Watermark Design, an architectural firm, and Thompson Consulting Services, a disaster recovery services firm.
