IRVINE, Calif. / ORLANDO, Fla. — January 4, 2020 – Montrose Environmental Group, Inc. (the “Company,” “Montrose” or “MEG”) (NYSE: MEG) today announced the acquisition of MSE Group (“MSE”), a leading provider of environmental assessment, compliance, engineering, and design services primarily to the U.S. federal government. MSE’s leadership team, including President Miyoung Squire, will join Montrose, and the business will be integrated with the Company’s Remediation and Reuse Segment. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Based in Orlando, Fla., with 3 additional offices and satellite locations nationwide, MSE’s portfolio encompasses more than 160 federal and non-federal customers nationwide.
