“S&L’s environmental and engineering expertise and long-time regional presence allows us to further strengthen our service offerings and geographic resources in Pennsylvania and the Mid-Atlantic,” said Gayle Packer, Terracon President and CEO. “By joining forces, our shared capabilities and focus on outstanding client experience allows us to bring even greater resources to clients regionally and nationally.”

S&L’s 150 employees will become part of Terracon, serving clients from offices in Harrisburg, Pittsburgh, and State College, Pa.; Hagerstown and Hunt Valley, Md.; and Morgantown, W.Va. The organization will continue to serve clients locally as Skelly and Loy, A Terracon Company.

“We are proud of the strong relationships we have built over our 50+-year history, and that our commitment to outstanding expertise and client service has created this opportunity,” said John Gunnett, P.G., president of S&L. “This merger allows us to join forces with Terracon’s national network, so we can bring even greater resources to our employees and clients.”

The new acquisition is supported by Terracon’s existing offices in the Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. metro areas, Charleston, W.Va., and others throughout the region.
