22 February 2024 1 min. read

Pape-Dawson Engineers, a San Antonio-headquartered civil engineering consulting firm, has acquired Maxwell-Reddick, a Statesboro, GA-based engineering consultancy.

Founded in 1964, Maxwell-Reddick provides services in planning, civil engineering, hydrology, environmental science, and surveying. The firm has over 20 employees, according to LinkedIn, and offices in Statesboro and Atlanta.

Pape-Dawson’s acquisition of Maxwell-Reddick will expand the Texas firm’s presence into Georgia.

The deal is the company’s third since a minority investment by Palm Beach Capital in April 2023. Pape-Dawson in September acquired Costello, a Houston-based engineering consultancy with 195 employees, and in October expanded into Florida through the acquisition of Poulos & Bennet, an Orlando- and Jacksonville-based civil engineering firm.

The Maxwell-Reddick transaction will grow Pape-Dawson to more than 750 people across 12 offices in Texas, Florida, and Georgia.

“This acquisition supports Pape-Dawson’s long-term strategy to expand our markets and services through thoughtful partnerships with leading firms across the nation,” said president Gene Dawson. “Maxwell-Reddick’s technical expertise coupled with their leadership’s commitment to employee satisfaction make the firm a strong addition to the Pape-Dawson family.”

Pape-Dawson was founded in 1965 and provides civil engineering, environmental, and surveying services for development and critical infrastructure projects.

“Maxwell-Reddick and Pape-Dawson share similar values, not only in our work but also in our people,” said Charles “Joey” Maxwell, president of Maxwell-Reddick. “Joining Pape-Dawson allows us to offer expanded resources for our clients and increased opportunity for our employees to grow with us. We’re excited for the future together.”
