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 PRI Group, a provider of testing, product development, validation and certification services to the asphalt, transportation and building materials end-markets.

Founded in 1990, PRI offers third-party testing, evaluation and other technical services for several infrastructure end-markets, including asphalt/bitumen, transportation, building materials, chemical and energy. Through these services, PRI helps its clients test, validate and certify the materials and products that are used in infrastructure and construction projects.

“The addition of PRI supports our strategic expansion into the Southeast and bolsters our TICC (testing, inspection certification and compliance) portfolio,” comments Ed Lyon, CEO of RMA. “In addition, their materials testing expertise adds to our range of building envelope services, enabling RMA to provide comprehensive services across both product and project lifecycles.”
