CLEVELAND, OH – Mazzella Companies is pleased to announce the acquisition of PE Alliance Engineering Services out of North Lima, OH. This acquisition further strengthens Mazzella’s in-house engineering capabilities and provides its teammates and customers access to:

  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Structural Engineering
  • Piping Design
  • Electrical Engineering
PE Alliance

“PE Alliance has been a partner to Mazzella for over three years and over that time, our relationship has grown stronger and more solid. They are a good group of people, they understand how to communicate, and they’ve built a solid system of processes we can implement. We expect their model to improve our paperwork, drawings flow, and approvals processes—which will improve turnaround time and provide a better customer experience. I’m excited to welcome the PE Alliance team into the Mazzella Companies organization,” said Matt Mazzella, Executive Vice President of Engineered Products.

“There’s a lot to be excited about right now – they bring a lot to the table. They have a team of PEs, mechanical, structural, civil, and electrical engineers, which is really key. Their team has a strong background in everything from overhead cranes to structural components, and even automotive and mill experience. They offer a number of services that will be of interest to our customers: reverse engineering, crane upgrades and runway surveys, 3D modeling and CAD / SolidWorks, conceptual design to detail, project management, equipment inspection, among others,” said Trevor Shubel, Operations Manager of Process Cranes and Modernizations.

Over the next six months, these new capabilities will be rolled out to Mazzella’s internal business units, and information will be available to educate Mazzella’s customers about the new engineering offerings. Some of Mazzella’s businesses that will see an immediate benefit from this acquisition are: Process Cranes and Modernizations, Below-the-Hook, Crane Contracts, Crane Service, Fall Protection, and Warehouse Solutions.

Mazzella also intends to leverage the knowledge and experience that PE Alliance brings to the organization and develop an in-house Engineering Co-Op program. As an Employer of Choice, the goal is to develop a pool of engineers and provide them with real-world experience, training, and an opportunity to career-path into a focused role with one of their Vertical Business Units.

“This acquisition gives us a solid engineering look, with PEs on staff, and their reputation is awesome. This establishes us as an engineering company, on top of everything else that we do, and we’re now fully-rounded, in my opinion. Nobody else in the country has all of this under one umbrella,” said Kenny Wright, Vice President of Process Cranes and Modernizations.
