Mount Prospect-based mechanical and electrical engineering consulting firm Amset Technical Consulting Inc. has been acquired by Rimkus Consulting Group Inc. for an undisclosed amount.
Houston-based Rimkus is a global provider of forensic engineering and consulting services that operates more than 60 offices across the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom with a consulting network staff of more than 500. The Amset's purchase follows Rimkus' acquisition of Brashear Construction Consulting Inc. earlier this month, which the company said will broaden the scope of its technical expertise.
"Amset shares our commitment to customer service -- always putting the client first, providing reliable answers based on scientific precision and delivering cost savings that our customers count on," said Robert Kocher, president and CEO of Rimkus Consulting Group.
Founded in 1995, Amset provides electrical and mechanical engineering consulting and investigative services to law firms, corporations and insurance companies.
"Rimkus' global infrastructure will enhance our ability to deliver in the areas where our clients consistently turn to us, including fire and explosion investigations, mechanical or electrical failures and other technical losses," said Frank Seter, Amset president and owner.
Rimkus Century Equity Partners acted as the exclusive financial adviser to Rimkus on the transaction.
