LJB Makes Strategic Acquisition in Louisville, KY

Ohio-based consulting firm expands its geospatial and site design services

DAYTON, Ohio – January 17, 2019 – LJB Inc. is pleased to announce the acquisition of Evans/Griffin, a highly respected civil engineering and surveying firm that has been serving the Louisville/Jefferson County Metro area for more than 30 years.

The addition of the Evans/Griffin team bolsters LJB’s national presence in providing geospatial and site design services for a variety of private and public sector clients.

“We’re thrilled to add the technical knowledge and relationships fostered by Evans/Griffin since their founding in 1987,” said Rod Sommer, CEO of LJB Inc. “We’ve been close to Jim Griffin for a number of years, and we’re proud to be able to continue his legacy as he transitions into a well-deserved retirement.”

This new business relationship will enable the Evans/Griffin team to grow in both size and capabilities as the firm expands services throughout the Louisville/Jefferson County Metro area, western Kentucky and southern Indiana.

LJB has been executing a specific growth strategy in the geospatial, survey and civil engineering space for a number of years. The firm holds professional engineering registrations in all 50 U.S. states and maintains offices in the Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Southeast and Gulf Coast regions, with plans to open a West Coast office in early 2019. In addition, LJB is a national leader in structural engineering, transportation and services that protect workers at heights.

“It makes the decision easy when we come across an acquisition opportunity that not only completely supports LJB’s strategy, but also meets all the needs of the other firm,” Sommer added. “We’ll only do a deal that is a true ‘win-win’ for both parties.”
