SESI is pleased to announce the acquisition of Quality Engineering Services, Inc. (QES). QES is a Mississippi based small business, providing engineering consulting and construction materials testing. The acquisition of QES’s Long Beach, Mississippi, office brings SESI’s office total to 12 across Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, and now Mississippi.

Founded by John P. Oliver, III, QES has been a family-owned and operated business serving the Mississippi coast since 1993. Oliver, along with most QES staff, will stay on with SESI. “We have enjoyed a great working relationship with SESI since we began and this acquisition just made sense for us as I look toward the future and eventual retirement,” shared Oliver. SESI President, Lewis Copeland, Jr., added, “we are very excited to welcome John and the QES team into the SESI family. We anticipate this to be a very smooth transition as we have shared many of the same clients working as a sub for QES providing additional services they didn’t offer.”

“We look forward to serving QES clients with the same level of service and integrity they have come to know. We are also excited to be able to offer them expanded services and reliability through the support of our experienced staff and multiple office locations,” Copeland shares.

Southern Earth Sciences, Inc. Mississippi office is located at 626-D West Railroad Street, Long Beach, MS, 39560, and can be reached at 228-868-6618.
