Bolton & Menk, Inc., a leading provider of public infrastructure consulting services in the Upper Midwest, announced today that it has completed the asset purchase of ColeJenest & Stone of Charlotte, NC. This asset purchase expands Bolton & Menk’s geographic reach and brings its innovative product and service offerings to ColeJenest & Stone’s well-established footprint in the Southeast. With offices in Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina, ColeJenest & Stone provides planning, landscape architecture, civil engineering, and urban design solutions.
“This asset purchase is part of Bolton & Menk’s growth strategy to expand our client-focused approach to new reaches of the United States,” said Bolton & Menk’s Chief Executive Officer, Bradley DeWolf. “ColeJenest & Stone is a highly-respected professional services firm in North Carolina. We feel a close fit from a values and culture perspective and couldn’t be more excited to bring our teams together to continue building safe, sustainable, and beautiful communities.”
The ColeJenest & Stone asset purchase demonstrates Bolton & Menk’s commitment to communities by identifying and acquiring a firm that was founded on the same principles and emphasizes a client-first approach. Established in 1988 as a full-service site design firm, collaboration has been the key to their success throughout the Carolinas and Virginia.
Bolton & Menk, Inc. was founded in 1949 by two hard working Midwesterners. Their commitment to communities has remained throughout their 71-year history. Their goals are simple – make progress by listening to what people want, finding the best solutions for their needs, and treating them right. This acquisition increases Bolton & Menk’s employee base to over 675 engineers, planners, landscape architects, surveyors, and other professional staff supporting public infrastructure in communities throughout Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
The ColeJenest & Stone Team is now part of the Bolton & Menk Team and located at 200 South Tryon in Charlotte and 131 ½ S Wilmington in Raleigh.
