Atwell acquires Delaware engineering firm

SOUTHFIELD–In its second acquisition of the year, the Southfield engineering services firm Atwell LLC has acquired Karins and Associates, an engineering, surveying, and planning firm with locations in Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. This acquisition continues to strengthen Atwell’s resources and capabilities in the Mid-Atlantic, building upon the acquisitions of Bay Engineering in 2023 and Ben Dyer Associates in 2022.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Operating in the Mid-Atlantic since 1973, Karins prides itself on serving a diverse group of clients with their more than 50 employees. The addition of Karins will expand Atwell’s engineering and surveying services within land development, transportation, water resources, and public works throughout the region.

“The core values of Karins and Atwell are well-aligned,” said Karins President Dev Sitaram. “We’re focused on providing clients with the highest standards of quality and service. We look forward to working closely with our new teammates at Atwell, to expanding our capabilities, and providing improved services to our clients and new opportunities to our employees.”

“We both have a client-centric approach, making the addition of Karins to Atwell a great fit,” said Bill Anderson, Atwell’s senior vice president of real estate and land development in the eastern United States. “By leveraging their decades of experience within the Mid-Atlantic, we’ll be able to provide our clients with even more capabilities. We look forward to working with the Karins team to help our clients reach their goals.”

This acquisition follows a year of expansion through organic growth and strategic acquisitions across the United States for Atwell. The acquisition of Karins follows Atwell’s most recent acquisitions of Banks Engineering, an engineering and surveying firm based in Fort Myers, Florida; Summit Engineering, a civil engineering and land surveying firm in Heber City, Utah; and Mead Gilman & Associates, a land surveying firm located in Woodinville, Washington.

Atwell is a national consulting, engineering, and construction services firm with more than 1,800 professionals located across the country. Creating innovative solutions for clients in industries such as real estate and land development, power and energy, hydrocarbons, and infrastructure, Atwell provides comprehensive turnkey services including land and right-of-way support, planning, landscape architecture, engineering, land surveying, environmental compliance and permitting, natural resources consulting and project and program management.
