GPD Expands Services with Acquisition of Timmerman Geotechnical Group

July 31, 2017

GPD is thrilled to announce that Timmerman Geotechnical Group, based out of Akron, Ohio, has joined our team.

Since 1972, Timmerman has served clients across Ohio and in parts of Pennsylvania and West Virginia with a wide array of engineering and material testing services. Timmerman has considerable experience as a trusted provider of subsurface explorations, laboratory analyses, construction materials testing and much more.

For GPD, this union will allow us to strengthen our existing geotechnical team by adding invaluable years of experience in the industry. The addition of Timmerman’s employees and their wide range of expertise will give GPD the manpower to provide full geotechnical services throughout the region. Darrin Kotecki, President of GPD, explains that the teaming of the companies will “enable us to provide expanded drilling services to a larger geographical footprint and provide a wider array of CMT services to our existing client base.” Further, this will allow GPD to provide services to new market sectors in which Timmerman Geotechnical Group has years of extensive experience.

As a part of the transition, Timmerman will relocate their offices to GPD’s corporate headquarters located in downtown Akron.
