IMEG Corp. acquires Michigan and Illinois firms

IMEG Corp. has acquired Process Results, Inc., a process engineering firm with offices in Ann Arbor and Utica, MI, and Whitney & Associates, Inc., a geotechnical engineering firm in Peoria.   

Process Results, Inc. (PRI) was founded in 1991 with a focus on the process and chemical industry and now offers comprehensive services in the commercial and industrial sectors. It provides chemical process, mechanical, electrical, and civil engineering design, along with structural, commissioning, automation and control, construction management, forensic engineering, and energy conservation services.

"We’re very excited to have PRI join our firm and expand our expertise," said IMEG President/CEO Paul VanDuyne. “Their proficiency in the chemical, pharmaceutical, specialty process, industrial, and consumer product industries is a fantastic addition, and their client-driven focus mirrors IMEG’s approach. ” VanDuyne added that PRI’s capabilities not only complement IMEG as a whole but also provide added synergy in the Michigan region, where IMEG has two existing offices in the Detroit area.

Former PRI President D. Kevin Bingel and Vice President Dale W. Niethammer have become IMEG principals and will continue to lead the offices. “We’re thrilled to join IMEG and looking forward to being able to expand the services we offer our clients,” said Bingel. “We’re also excited to bring our expertise to IMEG, which includes the vast skills needed to complete complicated and technically demanding projects including chemicals, viscous liquids, solids, flammables, explosives, and corrosives.”

Founded in 1966, Whitney & Associates has served central Illinois for more than 50 years, offering geotechnical engineering services, subsurface and ground water investigations, field and laboratory testing and inspection of construction materials, as well as other specialized technical services.

"We are extremely pleased to welcome Whitney & Associates into our company," said VanDuyne. “By blending both firms’ geotechnical engineering and materials testing expertise with IMEG’s full-service engineering portfolio we create a strong synergy for future growth.”

Whitney & Associates President and CEO Douglas Whitney said his firm is looking forward to being part of IMEG, which has a civil engineering team of approximately 250 professionals. “This merger brings together decades of experience, enhances our passion for delivering quality work, and allows us to continue developing strong client relationships across the Midwest and beyond.”

Both firms joined IMEG July 1 and are doing business as PRI, now IMEG, and Whitney & Associates, now IMEG. They will continue to operate out of their existing locations with the same personnel.
