RMA Companies, an OceanSound Partners-backed provider of laboratory testing, inspection and quality management services for public and private infrastructure assets across government and commercial end markets, has acquired A.J. Edmond Co., a provider of inspection, sampling and analytical services.

Founded in 1965, A.J. Edmond offers inspection, sampling and laboratory testing for producers and resellers of solid fuels and petroleum byproducts that are used in the production of materials and other industrial end-markets. A.J. Edmond is focused on the analysis of raw materials such as petroleum coke, coal and carbon. The company’s team operates out of laboratory facilities located near ports in Long Beach, Calif., Concord, Calif. and Longview, Wash.

“Their strategic positioning in ports and refineries adds new clients in the petrochemical industry to supplement our range of laboratory testing services for critical infrastructure end-markets, following our previous acquisition of PRI,” comments Ed Lyon, CEO of RMA. “We look forward to providing these services and driving cross-sell opportunities across the RMA companies.”
