Engineering and interdisciplinary consulting firm DMT announces expansion of its portfolio to include the provision of geotechnical systems for infrastructure projects through its acquisition of Wesemann.
Essen-based technology service provider DMT says the acquisition will increase its market access, as well as adding new expertise in the geo-engineering and exploration sector. Wesemann primarily operates in the civil engineering fields of pipeline construction, engineering surveying and industrial surveying, geo-information systems (GIS) and documentation with Computer Aided Design (CAD). Wesemann will remain an independent company within the DMT group, retaining both its current sites in Herne and Hamburg in Germany.
Wesemann has been providing long-term support to big-name customers in both the Ruhr area, and in northern Germany, in the form of documentation and development of digital pipeline registers as well as the planning and implementation of pipelines and supply systems.
"DMT is well-established as a provider of first-class specialist services and high-precision surveying in the engineering surveying market, whereas Wesemann offers a comprehensive and established portfolio of GIS/CAD applications and analyses plus specialist know-how in pipeline engineering," said Professor Eiko Rakers, CEO at DMT.
“New economic prospects for both companies will arise through access to common customer potential," added Rakers.
DMT is a group of engineering and consulting firms with more than 30 offices around the world, providing interdisciplinary services in the Oil & Gas, Mining, Civil Engineering & Infrastructure and Plant Engineering markets. Wesemann was founded in 1967 and currently employs 42 staff.
