Apex Companies Expands Southeast Presence with Acquisition of Tampa-based A2L Technologies, Inc.
ROCKVILLE, MD (MMD Newswire) January 8, 2013 -- Apex Companies, LLC - a leading national energy, water resources and environmental consulting and engineering firm - announces the acquisition of A2L Technologies, Inc. (A2L), which as of December 31, 2012 began operating under the Apex name.

An environmental consulting, engineering and remediation company specializing in real estate and financial institutions, A2L is a privately held firm headquartered in Tampa, FL. Apex is a portfolio company of Tailwind Capital, a private equity firm focused on investing in growth-oriented middle market companies. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

"The merger will allow both entities to benefit," says Peter Young, Chairman of Apex. "A2L will expand our Firm's reach into the robust southern market, while Apex's growing breadth of resources will allow A2L to better service new and existing clients nationally."

"Due to the commonality of our respective goals and cultures, it was quickly made apparent that a business relationship would be mutually beneficial," says Larry Schmaltz, Principal of A2L. "We are confident that this new bond will bring about great opportunities for both Apex and A2L."

Focused on minimizing environmental liabilities and hurdles to maximize client's business opportunities, Apex continues to expand its service capabilities, geographic footprint, and client base through organic growth and acquisitions. Apex was recently named a Top 200 Environmental Firm and Top 500 Design Firm by Engineering News-Record Magazine (ENR Magazine).
