Schnabel Engineering Acquires Deere & Ault Consultants, Inc.

GLEN ALLEN, VA — Schnabel Engineering, based in Glen Allen, Virginia, announces the acquisition of Deere & Ault Consultants, Inc. (D&A), a water resources, civil, and geotechnical engineering services firm with locations in Longmont, Colorado, and Boise, Idaho. The addition of these two locations will expand Schnabel’s national presence, increasing the companies’ capabilities, and benefit clients and partners.

Deere & Ault is known for water resources, geotechnical, dam, tunnel, and mine reclamation expertise. The company provides investigation, analysis, and design solutions for projects. Deere & Ault brings a diverse portfolio of clients to Schnabel’s footprint, expanding the company’s skill set and encouraging new opportunities for the combined firms within the Rocky Mountain and the Western regions for Schnabel, as well as the East coast for Deere & Ault.

“I have known and respected Schnabel Engineering for many years. Over that time I have admired their technical and business capabilities and their many project accomplishments,” said Don W. Deere, Chairman of the Board at Deere & Ault. “I am excited at the merger of our two fine organizations."

Schnabel Engineering provides specialized expertise for the planning, study, design, and construction of geotechnical, dam, and tunnel engineering projects in the United States and abroad. The company has worked in more than 140 countries since its founding in 1956.

“Occasionally something comes along that just feels right from the onset,” said Schnabel Engineering’s CEO Walter Rabe. “The merger of our two firms is one of those occasions. ... Together as one bigger and stronger firm, we will work side by side with our clients to improve many lives in the communities in which we work.”
