SAM Companies Acquires Carolina Surveying Services Inc.

AUSTIN, TX — SAM Companies (SAM), a provider of professional geospatial and inspection solutions to customers across the utility, transportation, and broader infrastructure industries, announces that it has acquired Carolina Surveying Services, Inc. (CSS), a professional geomatics solutions company.

Headquartered in Lexington, South Carolina, in the Columbia metropolitan area, CSS has client relationships with national and regional architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) firms, commercial and residential developers, and municipal and government agencies. SAM's acquisition of CSS further strengthens its presence and strategic initiatives in the Carolinas and Southeastern markets.

As part of the acquisition, the entire CSS team, including President Dennis Johns, will join SAM. Johns will continue to focus on business development and operations, supporting SAM's strategic growth plans.

"We're very excited to join SAM's industry-leading organization," Johns said. "The technical capabilities, resources, and expertise across complementary service lines will pave the way for new, value-added solutions to our clients across the Carolinas."

SAM continues to pursue a bold strategic growth strategy, both organic and through acquisition, with an emphasis on strengthening its technical capabilities, client solutions, and geographic expansion. This acquisition represents SAM's 16th acquisition in the past seven years.
