Glosten Acquires Noise Control Engineering
Seattle-based naval architecture and marine engineering consultancy Glosten, Inc. has acquired Noise Control Engineering LLC (NCE), a consulting firm specializing in ship noise and vibration control.
NCE, now a wholly owned subsidiary of Glosten, will continue to operate from its Billerica, Mass. and Mobile, Ala. offices as an independent group within the Glosten organization and will retain its corporate name and staff. There will be no disruption to current projects or changes in staff at either firm.
“For over 55 years, Glosten has grown carefully, responding to the unique and challenging needs of our clients,” said Glosten president, Jay Edgar. “Joining with NCE is an exciting next step. We are adding resources and capabilities that will allow us each to offer a more comprehensive scope of services while maintaining our individual identities and industry focus.”
NCE’s president and founder, Ray Fischer, said this transition ensures the success of NCE over the long term, “We are very excited for the two companies to come together. We have collaborated with Glosten for over 20 years on many fascinating projects. It’s great to join an organization that shares our client-focused culture.”
