Virginia Firm McKim & Creed Acquires Florida Company
January 3, 2019

McKim & Creed, Inc., which has an office in Norfolk and is one of the largest engineering and geomatics (surveying) firms headquartered in the Southeast, announced recently that it has acquired Pensacola-based Jehle-Halstead, Inc., also known as JHI.

JHI provides civil engineering and surveying services for land development and infrastructure projects in the Florida Panhandle, South Alabama and Gulf Coast areas of the U.S. “Jehle-Halstead is a strong, team-oriented, well-established firm that shares McKim & Creed’s commitment to superior quality, responsiveness and dependability,” said John T. Lucey, PE, president and chief executive officer of McKim & Creed. “Combining McKim & Creed’s strengths with those of Jehle-Halstead enables us to provide more specialized and advanced technologies — such as hydrographic surveying, unmanned aerial systems, and sustainable energy solutions — in the dynamic Florida Panhandle and Gulf Coast areas. We are excited to add our tenth Florida office and expand the McKim & Creed footprint into this region of Florida.”

JHI began its professional practice in 1987 and employs 17 people. The company works within the commercial, educational, government, medical, military and residential arenas.

Jehle-Halstead President Glenn P. Halstead, PE, and Vice President / Operations Manager D. Patrick Jehle, Jr., PE, will oversee the Pensacola office, which will go by the name McKim & Creed, Inc. “By joining forces with McKim & Creed, we are significantly expanding the services we provide to our clients, and can now offer a deep and wide pool of resources from which to draw,” said Mr. Halstead.

“We will continue to drive local business and be an integral part of the Pensacola community,” added Mr. Jehle. “As a part of McKim & Creed, our staff will remain in place and our client relationships will continue. The only difference is that now we can offer more opportunities, resources and services for our clients.”

The acquisition of Jehle-Halstead, Inc. by McKim & Creed, Inc. was closed January 2, 2019, and terms were not disclosed.
