Houston. The Board of Directors of Raba Kistner, Inc. (RK) has announced that as of October 1, 2018, Timber Creek Environmental (TCE) has joined Raba Kistner. Based in Conroe and with additional offices in San Antonio and Dallas, TCE will become part of RK’s environmental division.

Led by Charles “Dude” Hall, TCE was established in 2013, with the core competencies of Environmental Compliance, Geosciences and Natural Resource Management.

“TCE is well respected in the environmental field due to their experienced, committed staff, strong client relationships, and innovative project solutions that they have provided to their clients. Their growth in five years is nothing short of phenomenal,” said Tom Burr, Senior Vice President and COO of Raba Kistner’s environmental division. “They are a great cultural fit for Raba Kistner, as a result, and will support multiple components of Raba Kistner’s strategic growth plan.”

As part of Raba Kistner, TCE staff will help to expand Raba Kistner environmental services in the Houston, DFW and San Antonio marketplaces, as well as bring a regional/national presence through services provided to a select number of large industrial clients. Leaders from both companies are excited about this new affiliation and feel it gives Raba Kistner a substantial platform for further growth of our environmental services.

“TCE’s background with the manufacturing/industrial sector and with major national clients strengthens our position in this sector,” said Joe Irizarry, CMO and Senior Vice President of Raba Kistner, Inc. “We have served industrial clients for almost 50 years. TCE expands our range of environmental services and gives us even more ways to provide solutions for our clients.”

“For TCE staff, this means we will have an expanded client base to serve,” said Charles “Dude” Hall, founder and President of TCE. “Raba Kistner has offices throughout Texas and also in Utah, Nebraska, Mexico, and project offices throughout the United States. We are able to bring some critical new environmental services to assist with their client base. In addition, we can expand the suite of services we offer to TCE clients by including geotechnical engineering, construction materials testing, and program management services.”

Raba Kistner’s innovative approaches and experienced professionals have also been widely recognized within the profession. They are the largest privately owned firm of their type in the Southwest part of the United States. For 23 years, the company has ranked as a “Top 500 Firm” by Engineering News-Record, and has been consistently ranked as one of the top firms for both Engineering and Environmental services in the Southwest.
