"With their addition, we're thrilled to expand services in Kentucky and Ohio and the surrounding areas," said Pat Donovan, head of the Midwest region at UES. "CSI's team of experts and suite of engineering and testing services complements our own, and together as Team UES, we will achieve our goal to be the premier engineering consultant in the nation."
