With the purchase, the Metiri Group extends its geographic presence further across the Great Lakes and into the Mid-Atlantic region and adds capabilities to better serve clients.
The Metiri Group announces its purchase of CWM Environmental, a Kittanning, PA-based provider of water and wastewater laboratory services, treatment plant operations, and field services to clients across Pennsylvania and Ohio. Over 200 municipalities and corporate clients rely on CWM for essential operations and support.
The Metiri Group, with laboratories in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and California, and service locations in Hawaii and Alaska, brings complementary analytical capabilities to support CWM’s clients. With accreditations and certifications from the NELAC (National Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Conference), State and Federal agencies, the Metiri Group brings broader water, soil, and air testing capabilities, including specialty capabilities such as PFAS (including draft Method 1633), TO-15, and dioxins.
“I’ve long admired the business that CWM Founder/President, Dave Kohl, and his team have built,” says Metiri Group CEO Cabot Earle. “We’re thrilled to have a great fit between our two organizations where we can expand the services we offer our clients and the geography that we’re able to serve through an expanded footprint.”
“CWM extends Metiri’s strength further across the Great Lakes region and into the Mid-Atlantic marketplace.”
The purchase of CWM Environmental supports Metiri’s ambition to be the first choice for environmental analytical laboratory services. Achieving this goal requires a commitment to nimble and responsive service, a broad scope of capabilities, and an ability to deliver top-quality results.
The CWM team joins a growing family of Metiri employees in pursuit of this goal.
“We’re excited to partner with Metiri for the next phase of our growth,” says Mr. Kohl, who will continue on with the business post-acquisition. “Metiri really understood our clients and business, our culture as an organization, and our focus on service. They also demonstrated a firm commitment to Western Pennsylvania. We couldn’t be more excited to launch forward with them.”
