Nov. 2, 2020

Garden Grove, CA – Southland Industries today announced that it has acquired Burns Mechanical, a mechanical contractor based in the greater Philadelphia region.

This acquisition is aligned with Southland's strategy to expand into new geographic areas to better serve their clients and continue to expand industry influence towards design-build and collaborative delivery, which will directly benefit customers in the Pennsylvania and Northeast markets.

"Philadelphia fits within our Mid-Atlantic Division's current footprint and is nearly adjacent to the Washington D.C./Baltimore market. Being this close to each other will allow for close collaboration and will allow Burns to leverage Southland's capabilities. I am excited to welcome Burns Mechanical to the Southland Industries family and look forward to what we will accomplish together," said Ted Lynch, Ph.D., CEO of Southland Industries.

Dan Kerr, PE, President of Burns Mechanical, said, "This acquisition is consistent with our strategic plan of market disruption and will help broaden our financial resources and capabilities in many key areas, including BIM, prefabrication, Lean methods, integrated engineering, and building automation systems."

Together, Southland and Burns will leverage their combined expertise to better serve their customers and seize unique opportunities to achieve success through design-build and other collaborative delivery approaches.
