UES Welcomes GFA International to the Family

Universal Engineering Sciences (UES) has grown to become a leader in our industry in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic over the last 56 years. Over the last couple of years we have continued to expand our footprint outside of Florida to include D.C. Metro and the Carolinas. These offices joined our offices in Tifton and Atlanta, Georgia. In a move to further strengthen our dominant geographical footprint in the State of Florida we are very excited to announce the recent merger of GFA International (GFA) and Universal Engineering Sciences (UES). GFA International is a complementary company providing similar core services to UES including geotechnical engineering, environmental consulting, construction materials testing and inspections, building code compliance, and facilities consulting. The combined company resources include 26 offices and 1,200+ highly skilled professionals ready to service clients throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.

In the near term the two companies will operate separately, but will be integrated during 2020. Seymour Israel, Mark Israel, Frank Frione, and Fred Kaub will continue to lead the combined company.

This strategic merger allows us the ability to provide our clients and their projects access to some of the best engineering talent and resources available in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic region. The company leaders and teammates are committed to the same core values and level of service that have made both firms successful for decades! For the immediate future it is business as usual for our clients. Please continue to reach out to your current points of contact for new projects and services.

We sincerely value our client’s faith and trust in us and look forward to continuing to provide industry leading consulting, inspection, and testing services on your projects! Please contact us if we can assist you with any of the following services:
