Merrick buys collaborator, targets Southwest market


San Antonio-based K.M. Ng merges with Merrick & Co.

U.S. engineering and geospatial technologies firm Merrick & Company said Friday it acquired K.M. Ng and Associates, Inc. The two firms have teamed together on public and private projects for the past 20 years.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed and the company declined to provide a purchase price when reached by email. Headquartered in Greenwood Village, Colo., Merrick has about $116 million in annual revenue and maintains 17 offices worldwide, serving clients in the energy, national security, life sciences and sustainable infrastructure markets.

San Antonio, Texas-based K.M. Ng has about $4.5 million in annual sales and will merge its operations with Merrick’s San Antonio office.

Merrick said the acquisition allows it to expand its structural, civil and mechanical and electrical engineering services in Texas and throughout the Southwest with the ability to take on public and private infrastructure and water projects.

“With this team of experts, Merrick will enhance its capabilities in engineering and continue to offer outstanding, comprehensive design solutions,” said Merrick CEO David Huelskamp.

Aside from their history working together, both Merrick and K.M. Ng have long provided services to the Department of Defense.

From 2000-2012, Merrick was awarded 160 DoD contracts worth over $107 million, including a $10 million contract in 2011 for architecture and engineering services.

K.M. Ng’s experience with DoD contracts is not as extensive, but the company was awarded $20.5 million in contracts from 2000-2012, most recently one for $3.2 million last September from the U.S. Corps of Engineers.
