SALINA, N.Y. — Barton & Loguidice, D.P.C. (B&L) announced it has acquired a New Jersey company as it seeks to grow its waste-management business.

Cummings & Smith, Inc. of Fairfield, New Jersey is a civil-engineering firm specializing in the solid-waste management sector, servicing clients in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, per a B&L news release.

The acquisition closed on June 14, John Brusa, Jr., president and CEO of Barton & Loguidice, tells BJNN in an email. The local firm didn’t release any terms of its acquisition agreement.

The transaction represents its fourth acquisition since April 2018, B&L said.

B&L is a Salina–based engineering, planning, environmental and landscape architecture firm with more than 270 employees throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.

Gary Smith, president and co-founder of Cummings & Smith, has joined B&L as a senior managing engineer in the solid waste practice area. Smith is based in the firm’s New Jersey office. Three staff members, formerly with Cummings & Smith, have also joined B&L.

“With this acquisition, B&L is able to expand our solid waste expertise as we continue to build and invest in services for our clients,” Brusa said in the release. “We are excited to bring Gary and his team into our B&L family. Our two companies align well in terms of quality service, culture and value which will provide synergistic growth and opportunity for both firms.”
