ESTERO — J.R. Evans Engineering acquired Mitchell Engineering Group in Naples, in an effort to expand the firm's land development services.
Estero-based J.R. Evans has developed a reputation for helping building owners and landowners remove their properties from newly drafted federal flood-zone maps. Mitchell's specialty is land development and entitlement.
The acquisition will give J.R. Evans an office in Naples and Chris Mitchell, president of Mitchell Engineering, is now a principal with J.R. Evans. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“The merger provides the opportunity to offer greater depth of expertise and resources for our land development clients,” says Josh Evans, president of J.R. Evans Engineering, in a statement. “Chris brings new client relationships and significant industry expertise. This is a great addition to our growing company.”
