SEPTEMBER 1, 2015 —Seattle-based naval architecture and marine engineering consultancy Glosten has acquired Noise Control Engineering, LLC (NCE), an acoustical engineering firm specializing in noise and vibration control for marine, industrial, and commercial environments.
Glosten says that the acquisition brings together two industry-leading firms, both with a proven record of integrating rigorous analytical and experimental approaches with practical, cost-effective solutions for their clients.
"For over 55 years, Glosten has grown carefully, responding to the unique and challenging needs of our clients," said Glosten President Jay Edgar. "Joining with NCE is an exciting next step. We are adding resources and capabilities that will allow us each to offer a more comprehensive scope of services while maintaining our individual identities and industry focus."
President and founder of NCE Ray Fischer said the transaction ensures the success of NCE over the long term.
"We are very excited for the two companies to come together. We have collaborated with Glosten for over 20 years on many fascinating projects. It's great to join an organization that shares our client-focused culture," he said.
As a Glosten subsidiary, Noise Control Engineering, LLC will continue to operate under that name, will maintain its current offices in Billerica, MA, and Mobile, AL, and will serve its clientele as an independent group within the Glosten organization.
