Essen, Germany, 29.09.2015. With the purchase of the Dr. Wesemann engineering firm on 21.09.15, the Essen based technology service provider DMT GmbH & Co. KG has expanded its service portfolio to include the provision of geotechnical systems for infrastructure projects.

The acquisition of Wesemann will increase market access for DMT as well as the expertise of its “Geo Engineering & Exploration” division. Wesemann primarily operates in the fields of pipeline construction (civil engineering), engineering surveying and industrial surveying, geo-information systems (GIS) and documentation with Computer Aided Design (CAD). Wesemann will remain an independent company within the DMT group, keeping both its current sites in Herne and Hamburg.

“DMT is well-established as a provider of first-class specialist services and high-precision surveying in the engineering surveying market, whereas Wesemann offers a comprehensive and established portfolio of GIS/CAD applications and analyses plus specialist know-how in pipeline engineering,” explains Prof. Dr. Eiko Räkers, CEO at DMT, when summing up the status quo of the two firms. “Our customers will be able to benefit from the extensive and attractive service range of the DMT group as we prepare for the upcoming decentralisation and network expansions in the energy sector.”

Wesemann has been providing long-term support to big-name customers in both the Ruhr area and northern Germany in the form of documentation and development of digital pipeline registers as well as the planning and implementation of pipelines and supply systems. DMT is also confident that the acquisition will provide further valuable competence in the field of industrial surveying, including the specialist areas of measuring ship deformations and documenting ship hulls. For years DMT has been rendering rope and product testing as well as fire protection measures and expert reports on fire safety for the shipbuilding industry. Wesemann will complement DMT’s services providing as-built-documentations and deformation measurements for damage surveys.

“New economic prospects for both companies will arise through access to common customer potential,” adds Räkers with certainty. “In fact, intercompany cooperation is already underway.”
