Alpha Terra Acquisition Strengthens Fehr Graham's Service Portfolio

Fehr Graham has taken advantage of an exciting opportunity that will bring a strong environmental and safety presence into our wide range of ever-growing services. Earlier this year, Fehr Graham acquired Alpha Terra Science (ATS) of Plymouth, Wisconsin. Alpha Terra has been a leading environmental and safety consultant in the State of Wisconsin since 1992. Combining Fehr Graham’s existing environmental and safety consulting service lines in Illinois and ATS’s client base and strong professional staff in Wisconsin, this acquisition is expected to be a recipe for success.

Founded in 1992 by Don Becker, Alpha Terra Science has an established presence in Wisconsin and throughout the United States. ATS serves clients with environmental, remediation, and safety consulting services for industrial, commercial, professional and the public sector. ATS has grown from two employees to a staff of fifteen over the last twenty years.

“We are a small town company with huge talent and service. Alpha Terra just strengthened our position in both the safety and environmental markets while giving us an inroad to engineering jobs in Wisconsin,” says Ken Thompson, Fehr Graham Managing Member.  “In early discussions, it became clear that the core values and company cultures of our firms were paralleled and our operations would complement one another,” said Thompson.  “It’s exciting to team up with such high quality people.”

Becker commented, “Our personnel have been the key to our growth. They are a group of experienced professionals that take service to another level.” Added Becker, “Our core values of Family, Teamwork, Accountability, Ethics and Commitment meld well with those of Fehr Graham. We look forward to strengthening and growing the Environmental Compliance division of Fehr Graham through collaborative efforts.”
The acquisition positions Fehr Graham with ten Midwest offices. ATS is now the second Wisconsin office, adding to the established Monroe office.
Alpha Terra’s approach is focused on an experienced and professional staff coupled with targeted niche-based businesses. These niche-based businesses listed below will combine well with Fehr Graham’s established specialties.
          - Remediation Division – PECFA, DERF, ACCP, Phase I & Phase II ESA’s and Brownfields.
          - Environmental Compliance Division – Development and implementation of electronic                         Environmental Management Systems through the use of the SHAREPOINT software                          program.
          - Safety Compliance Division – One of the top providers of Public Sector Safety services in                 the State of Wisconsin
