Elliot Engineering, a member of the Davis H. Elliot Company Family of Brands, and Wells Engineering today announced that Elliot Engineering has acquired Wells Engineering, a power systems engineering firm based in Florence, KY. The acquisition of Wells Engineering will expand Elliot Engineering’s current services and open additional opportunities to each of their existing customers. Combined with the Davis H.

Additionally, Well’s Engineering will have access to Elliot’s robust procurement operation, material buying power, and utility construction services to offer new and existing clients. 

“We set a goal as part of our company’s strategic plan to expand our engineering services. As we evaluated the industry for potential opportunities, we could not have found a company more aligned with our culture and vision than Wells Engineering,” said David Haskins, President/CEO of Elliot. “Their approach to design, quality, and innovation set them apart from other power system engineering companies, but what truly makes the difference for them is the people. We could not ask for a finer group of people to become members of our Elliot Family.” 

President of Wells Engineering, Patrick Wells, stated, “We have been in a growth mindset at Wells Engineering in recent years and were seeking a strategic partner to help us achieve our goals.
