A company that has been around Gainesville for more than 50 years has announced they are selling to a national organization. Rochester & Associates is known for providing private and public entities with civil engineering, land surveying, project management, and infrastructure services. They have locations in Gainesville and in Fayetteville and are known throughout the southeast.
The company announced Thursday that they have been acquired by DCCM, a national provider of design, consulting and program and construction management services based out of Houston, Texas.
A press release from Rochester & Associates states that several key figures will continue on with the new group. Darrell Rochester, will continue his role as CEO, while Brian Rochester will also stay in his current position as Executive Vice President.
Both had positive words to say about the acquisition.
“We are extremely happy to join the DCCM family of companies as the next step of our company’s evolution and growth,” said Darrell Rochester. “Bringing excellent products and services to this market is a major cornerstone of our family business, and our clients will continue to enjoy the responsive, trusted service they’ve come to expect, along with access to DCCM’s national presence and resources.”
“After 55 years of success, Rochester & Associates is looking forward to the opportunity of benefiting from DCCM’s resources and scale,” said Brian Rochester. “DCCM’s capabilities will also undoubtedly strengthen Rochester & Associates’ holistic approach to business. There’s a real synergy between the two companies and the complimentary services we provide.”
The DCCM group agreed that the two companies share a similar mission and vision and will partner well together moving forward. “We’re delighted to welcome Rochester & Associates into the DCCM family,” commented Jim Thompson, CEO of DCCM. “This is a tremendous step for DCCM in expanding our reach east, and we couldn’t have found a better partner to lead the way. As we’ve gotten to know the Rochester team, it’s clear there is tremendous alignment in the way we operate, serve clients, and care for our people, and we can’t wait to combine our efforts and build towards our shared vision together.”
