DIGS Associates, Martin Engineering Company strike partnership
Two Illinois-based companies, Martin Engineering Company (MEC) and DIGS Associates have struck a partnership as of July 30. The partnership will focus on the development drainage solutions.
Both companies have expertise in agricultural drainage. DIGS primarily serves as a third-party consultancy for landowners, utilities, investors, contractors and more, while MEC specializes in professional civil engineering and land surveying services. Together, the two companies plan to provide drainage, irrigation and nutrient loss reduction solutions at the field and watershed level. In addition, necessary permits from regulatory authorities will be addressed directly by the partnership.
“From our standpoint, this is a win-win. We are teaming up with experienced, professional, good guys that have been servicing the agricultural drainage industry for over 25 years,” said MEC president, Phil Martin, in a statement. “We feel this is a path to additional market exposure, both for our professional engineering expertise as well as our land surveying expertise. We provide USDA Certified Technical Service Provider (TSP)/Licensed Professional Engineering Certification (PE) to the team.”
