Keller's Geotechnical Construction Companies to Combine

Written by  TheStructuralEngineer.info
Keller’s geotechnical construction businesses in North America are joining together as one unified company, and rebranding to Keller, effective January 1, 2020. Keller’s geotechnical construction businesses in North America are joining together as one unified company, and rebranding to Keller, effective January 1, 2020.

Effective January 1, 2020, North America Keller companies McKinney Drilling, Bencor, Case Atlantic, Case Foundation, Hayward Baker, HJ Foundation, Keller Canada, and Moretrench will join together and rebrand to Keller.

Keller was founded in 1860 and is the largest geotechnical specialist contractor in the world with ongoing operations in over 40 countries across six continents. With a North American presence of over 70 years, Keller operates as the market leader with over 50 offices throughout the US and Canada.

"We have a very proud history of success and market leadership in North America," explains James Hind, President, North America. "Combining our capabilities will strengthen our position and give us the platform for further growth and success into the next decade."

"We are making this announcement well in advance to ensure the transition is planned and executed smoothly and January is a logical starting point," says James. "In the meantime, everyone remains firmly focused on continuing to win and execute work safely and successfully day to day."

Prior to January 1, clients will see no change. The current companies will continue to bid and secure work and existing projects will continue as planned. Clients will continue to work with our same people in the existing businesses.

After January 1, the new company will bring benefits to both customers and Keller. "Primarily we are making this change for our clients. Operating as one company in each local market, offering all products and services, we'll be easier to understand and engage with," explains James. "Clients can be confident they're getting the best, most competitive solutions, especially when these involve multiple techniques."

Keller's non-geotechnical construction businesses Moretrench Industrial, Suncoast Post-Tension, and Cyntech will stay as separate businesses within the Keller North American organization and retain their brands. GEO-Instruments, the instrumentation and monitoring company, will keep its brand.
