Posted on December 15, 2022 By

Benchmark is pleased to announce the transaction between Huco Consulting, Inc and Montrose Environmental Group, Inc. The reasons for targeting were strategic expansion and the added value that Huco would bring to the table.

Founded in 2008, Huco is a team of EHS & ESG data management system consultants based in North America. Going beyond software, Huco supports clients from a variety of industries with the content, work processes, integrations, outputs, reporting, and change management processes needed to sustain an information management system, enabling them to better monitor their environmental impacts, including carbon footprint, improve employee safety, and decrease compliance risk while reducing costs, improving efficiency and creating value.

Montrose is a leading environmental services company focused on supporting commercial and government organizations as they deal with the challenges of today and prepare for what’s coming tomorrow. With more than 2,500 employees across over 75 locations around the world, Montrose combines deep local knowledge with an integrated approach to design, engineering and operations, enabling the company to respond effectively and efficiently to the unique requirements of each project. From comprehensive air measurement and laboratory services to regulatory compliance, emergency response, permitting, engineering and remediation, Montrose delivers innovative and practical solutions that keep its clients on top of their immediate needs – and well ahead of the strategic curve.

“As environmental reporting needs increase for companies, the demand for systematic compliance and data aggregation is growing fast,” said Mark Hall, Senior Vice President of Advisory and Specialty Services at Montrose. “With the addition of the experienced Huco team, we enhance our data offerings, expanding support for the compliance and ESG/Sustainability needs of our clients as we continue to pioneer real-time environmental monitoring and consolidated reporting. We welcome the Huco team and are excited to join talents with one of the top consulting firms for integrating EHS & ESG data.”

Huco's co-founders Ron Huijsman and Sameer Vyas added: "We are thrilled to be joining Montrose, as our consulting businesses are highly complementary, and we work with many of the same clients today. Our passion is creating and sustaining data management systems that not only manage compliance, risk, and sustainability but also create value for our client's organization, customers, people, and other stakeholders. As part of the larger Montrose platform, we will be able to reach many more clients with our partners and do so with an organization that is fully committed to supporting our development, people, and client solutions. We are excited to hit the ground running together in 2023."

The sellers were very motivated to get a deal done and worked the process from start to finish. In the end, we were able to obtain and move forward with a great offer that was more than two times what the sellers were originally expecting. Benchmark wishes both parties the best moving forward with their new partnership.

Transaction Associate Haden Buckman commented, “This deal was a prime example of motivated sellers utilizing the Benchmark International Process to achieve a deal that rose beyond their expectations. The buyer was seamless to work with as well and worked diligently up until the finish line. We wish all the best to both parties and hope their relationship flourishes for years to come.”
