Berger Group Holdings Inc. has acquired Hawthorne Services Inc. with the intent of growing operation and maintenance support services in the aircraft and military base industries.
Washington Technology reports the transaction closed Dec. 28 for an undisclosed amount and adds a fourth division to Louis Berger Group, a subsidiary of Berger Group Holdings.
Hawthorne, based in South Carolina and having nearly 350 employees, provides aircraft fuel and facility support services to government agencies and includes Fort Bragg, N.C. as among its bigger clients.
Steve Townes, Louis Berger president, said Berger Group made the acquisition because it sees growth opportunities with the Defense Logistics Agency.
Nicholas Masucci, CEO of the Louis Berger Group, said Louis Berger is aiming to grow its support for government operations, maintenance, transportation, fueling services, airfield operations, facilities services and technical services.
