Osmose Utilities Services Buys Utility Consultant McLean Engineering

Feb. 19, 2024
McLean is an engineering firm serving electric utilities on T&D design, pole attachments and other issues related to the joint use of utility structures.

Osmose Utilities Services, provider of inspection, maintenance and restoration services for electric utility and critical infrastructure in the U.S., acquired the principal assets of McLean Engineering Co.

McLean, based in Moultrie, Ga., is an engineering firm with over 85 years of experience serving as consultants to electric utilities on transmission and distribution (T&D) design, pole attachments and other issues related to the joint use of utility structures.

The acquisition serves to supplement Osmose’s structural engineering with T&D electrical engineering capabilities. The merger expands the provision of end-to-end joint use turnkey consulting and management services to electric utilities and telecommunications providers and adds depth to Osmose’s technical engineering services.

As the demand for electric energy and broadband continues to grow, managing joint use, pole attachment and make-ready issues has become crucial to maintain infrastructure integrity, comply with regulations, reduce costs, protect the environment and ensure the reliable delivery of services.

“Osmose’s acquisition of McLean Engineering positions us to better support customer efforts, providing a full suite of electrical engineering, pole attachment support and joint use services,” said Mike Adams, CEO of Osmose Utilities Services, Inc.

McLean Engineering was founded in 1936 to support the growth of co-op utilities in the Southeastern U.S.  Since then, the firm has developed a national footprint and a reputation for engineering excellence serving a broad range of electric utilities.
