SSOE announced recently that it has acquired EOM Ltd., a 60 year old multi-disciplined engineering firm that provides a broad range of technical services to the glass, power generation, and manufacturing industries. EOM has become part of SSOE’s Industrial Process strategic business unit. The acquisition will result in increased technical resources and services, and will allow the newly expanded team to provide more robust in-house expertise to current glass and power industry clients such as Owens Corning, St. Gobain Containers, Johns Manville, Pilkington, American Electric Power, Consumers Energy, and First Energy.
Tony Damon, CEO of SSOE stated, “In January, SSOE acquired Orbital Technical Solutions (OTS), a firm widely known for its work in the power industry. That acquisition expanded our capabilities in the power market. The EOM acquisition will not only bring additional expertise to that market, but our glass industry clients will also benefit from the increased furnace design capabilities that EOM brings to the table.” Damon describes both acquisitions as further evidence of SSOE’s growth and commitment to the glass and power industries as well as to the State of Ohio. EOM’s two Ohio locations will bring SSOE’s total number of offices in its home state to six.
