Stell and QRI – Working Together to Better Meet our Clients’ Needs

I am pleased to announce Stell’s upcoming acquisition by Quaternary Resource Investigations, LLC, (QRI). QRI and Stell have executed a binding letter of intent; the closing of the acquisition is expected to occur prior to the end of calendar year 2020. Following the acquisition, QRI will be doing business as “QRS”.

Stell began its professional practice in 2004. Our growth over the past 16 years has been predominantly internal, stemming from referrals of our client base and the professionals we work with. The growth and development of our professional staff have evolved in a similar manner. We have attracted high quality, committed professionals and invested in their training and development. As a result of those efforts, we have experienced respectable business growth over the past several years.

QRI was established in 1986 and is headquartered in Baton Rouge, LA. Known for its environmental and consulting services, QRI has become a significant provider of environmental remediation, geophysical assessments, emergency response, construction services, and environmental subject matter expertise with a proven track record of success and experienced leadership that will benefit the new organization.

We have decided to join our companies and capabilities to enable a greater depth and breadth of services and better serve you. As you know, identifying and retaining excellent people is a constant challenge. A larger organization will also mean our employees will benefit from working together, with even stronger career opportunities.

Partnering with QRI has exceeded our expectations; it is a firm we can combine with and continue the tradition we have for excellent service, deep expertise, and an environment our clients and employees want to be a part of. QRI shares our values, and we are excited to move forward with the combined strengths of each organization.

We will be able to provide you many new services and areas of expertise in the future and look forward to discussing those in more depth soon. As a component of this process, we will be updating all our agreements, as appropriate, to reflect the new organization.

There are several things I want to highlight that will not change:

  •  We will continue to be a small business under our primary NAICS codes (e.g., 541330, 541620, 541720, 562910).
  •  We will continue to be a woman-owned small business and disadvantaged business enterprise.
  •  We will continue to provide our full range of services and the exceptional quality you deserve.
  •  You will continue to maintain current working relationships with those in our firm, as all our employees are being retained in their present roles.

If you have any questions about this exciting news, please contact me any time. I look forward to introducing you to our new partners. I am grateful to you for the continued opportunity to provide you with ongoing services and am confident that our increased capacity will serve us all very well.

Julie Erickson, PMP
President and Chief Executive Officer
