According to BME president Peter Vars, “the recent acquisition of Clark Surveyors of Geneva opens a wealth of new possibilities for clients of both firms — and for potential new clients, as well.”
Vars noted that the central Finger Lakes area “has been experiencing strong growth across a number of business categories, and we expect this trend to continue. Through our increased work in this region, we will establish relationships with local municipalities and agencies that, in turn, should help BME clients considering expansion or other projects in the central Finger Lakes.”
Over two decades in business, Clark Surveyors has completed land surveys and mapping for thousands of clients in the Finger Lakes region. “Now,” said Vars, “these same firms will have easy access to all that BME offers including site engineering, full-service surveying, landscape architecture, and wetlands expertise.”
Beyond the current clients of Clark and BME, Vars said the acquisition “offers one-stop shopping” to any company looking at development opportunities in the central Finger Lakes. “We are eager to establish a strong presence in the area,” he said.
Vars also confirmed that BME would retain and staff the Clark Surveyors offices at 324 W. North Street. “Maintaining a physical location in the area is important,” he said, “and we are pleased that founder David Clark will stay with us for a six-month transition period.”
The acquisition closed on January 18.
