Kent, Ohio – Davey Resource Group, Inc. (DRG), a subsidiary of The Davey Tree Expert Company, has announced the acquisition of certain assets of TGC Engineering, LLC., (TGC) based in Sharon Center, Ohio.

Founded in 2001, TGC offers civil, municipal and environmental engineering services to clients in the private and public sectors. The firm and DRG have a longtime partnership in place and have worked together on multiple projects spanning nearly 10 years.

“We are excited for the employees of TGC as we welcome them into the Davey family,” said Ken Joehlin, vice president and general manager, DRG Environmental Consulting. “TGC has been a leader in the field and their experience, combined with Davey’s scientific and technical leadership, strengthens Davey’s commitment to our clients across the region. This acquisition also expands the range of services we can offer to our clients.”

As part of DRG’s Environmental Consulting services division, TGC will continue providing civil site engineering, water resource engineering, construction surveying and topographic services in Ohio and surrounding states.

The firm employs 24 employees, all of whom will continue employment with the company. TGC founder and owner Travis Crane will continue with Davey as engineering area manager to lead DRG’s engineering services in Ohio and the Midwest and to ensure a successful transition of employees and clients to DRG.

Crane said both DRG and TGC share a passion for creating an excellent client experience and employee development.
