Orleans, Indiana-based Reynolds Inc., a Layne Christensen Co. (Nasq: Layn), recently announced the acquisition of W. L. Hailey and Co., Nashville, Tenn.
Hailey was founded in 1925 and has been an industry leader focused on water and wastewater construction, primarily in the Southeast. Hailey also specializes in marine construction, as well as hard rock and soft ground tunneling.
This acquisition will complement the Reynolds activities in the Midwest, Southeast and the Rocky Mountain states.
“When this opportunity presented itself, it was an easy decision on our part,” stated Mark Accetturo, Reynolds executive vice president of construction operations. “The legacy and culture of both firms created a natural fit and will result in a more diverse group with unsurpassed experience. Our intent is to maintain the structure and management of W. L. Hailey, while we grow our geographic and product line capabilities.”
“We are excited to be part of the Layne Christensen and Reynolds Inc. family of companies,” said Dan Ackerman, president of W. L. Hailey. “With the resources and support Hailey has access to now, our ability to grow is stronger than ever.”
