The Palmerton Group, which is headquartered at 6296 Fly Road and also has offices in the Buffalo and Pittsburgh areas, will become part of Norwood, Mass.–based GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc.

The group’s entire staff will be joining GZA. Its founder and CEO, David Palmerton, will become a vice president at the Massachusetts firm.

“We are pleased to join with a company that shares our values and mission in successfully evaluating and meeting our clients’ needs, and we look forward to providing an expanding range of services,” he said in a news release. “In joining GZA GeoEnvironmental, we gain the resources of a larger firm while maintaining our hands-on approach with each client.”

The companies didn’t disclose financial terms of the deal.
