Lexington, Ky.-based design-build firm Gray Construction acquired Norcross, Ga.-based Spencer Bristol Engineering, a consulting design engineering firm. According to Gray, the similar values of the companies brought them together to complement each other’s business interests.

Spencer Bristol Engineering will continue its work in the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection and process piping design industry under the leadership of its principals Morley Spencer and Doug Bristol.

“After meeting with Gray Construction and personally witnessing its commitment to customers and team members, I was 100% ready to sign on,” Spencer said.

Bristol added: “Joining forces with Gray is simply a great opportunity that will provide us with more tools to better serve our customers and team members.”

Spencer Bristol has more than 20 years of experience with customers such as Delta Airlines, Lockheed Martin and the Georgia Board of Regents.

“We are excited to welcome all of Spencer Bristol Engineering to Gray,” said Stephen Gray, president and CEO of Gray Construction. “We firmly believe the joint companies will provide added value to all our customers, which serves as a great fit to everyone.”
