Miller Pipeline announced its acquisition of Hamlet Construction, based in Ocala, Florida. The acquisition expands Miller’s territory in Central Florida.
Founded in 1973, Hamlet has grown from a small family business to an organization known for its detail-oriented project planning and execution. Hamlet specializes in natural gas mains and services, water and sewer lines, fire hydrants, and reclaimed water lines. Miller is a leader in providing a comprehensive range of pipeline contracting and rehabilitation services for natural gas, liquids, water, and wastewater pipelines.
“For several years we have wanted to expand our natural gas operations in Florida, and the opportunity to join forces with Hamlet’s top-notch team is a huge step in that direction,” said Chad Davis, vice president of South Region Construction for Miller Pipeline. “Their core values of honesty, hard work, doing a quality job and building long-term relationships align closely with Miller Pipeline’s four core values of safety, quality, commitment, and reputation. We feel our companies could not be a better match for one another.”
For Miller Pipeline, the acquisition adds 100 construction professionals to an existing roster of 3,300 employees across the country. Day-to-day operations will continue to be coordinated by Harvey Vandeven, general manager of Florida Operations, who will report to Davis.
“Hamlet is consistently viewed as a top contractor around central Florida, and we are excited to have them join our team,” said MVerge CEO Doug Banning. “The Florida gas construction market is a relatively new market for us. The Hamlet team brings local expertise and resources to help us expand our customer base. We are committed to providing the same level of customer service, safety, and quality work to customers. We look forward to the new employees adopting our culture built around our core values, making safety personal, and our core purpose of ‘Building Infrastructure; Building Relationships.”
Miller Pipeline, an MVerge Company, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of CenterPoint Energy. Based in Indianapolis, Miller Pipeline is comprised of highly trained and skilled employees totaling more than 3,000, with office locations in over 20 states around the United States.
