GeoPoint Surveying Acquires North Florida Surveying Firm, Emerald Coast Associates

TAMPA, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#crewcultureGeoPoint Surveying is proud to announce the acquisition of Emerald Coast Associates, Inc. (ECA) to its growing corporate footprint in the southeast U.S.

ECA’s location in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida made it an ideal addition to GeoPoint as the company has been growing its north Florida business for the last three years after opening an office location in Panama City Beach in 2020 to support a long-term contract at Latitude Margaritaville Watersound. In addition, the experienced team at ECA had been providing excellent service to the area for more than 40 years which was desirable to GeoPoint who had been seeking to expand their work force to meet demand in the panhandle.

“The opportunity to bring the ECA team under the GeoPoint Surveying brand was not only great timing for our growth strategy, but also uniquely personal for me,” said David Williams, President of GeoPoint Surveying. “ECA leaders gave me my first job as a rodman in the early 90s, and with their exceptional training I later became a Crew Chief, which ultimately set me on the career path that led to today.”

Seventeen employees were added to the GeoPoint team through this acquisition, including three individuals who will take on leadership roles as part of the transition: Dexter Lundy, Assistant Director of North Florida Operations; Daryl Burgis, Project Manager; Ray Howard, Chief of Crews.

Awarded the ‘Best Places to Work’ (2022, 2021), Tampa Bay 200 (2022) and ‘Fast 50’ top growing companies by the Tampa Bay Business Journal, GeoPoint has developed a premier reputation in the Florida survey industry, setting the standard for high performing staff, and access to forward-thinking technology and leading-edge equipment.

One of the largest land surveying companies in the Southeast, GeoPoint Surveying, Inc. provides standard-setting survey services including subsurface utility location, remote sensing/LiDAR, construction support and land development services, hydrographic surveys and geographic information systems for residential, commercial, energy, industrial, and various other public and private projects. GeoPoint is licensed in Florida and Texas, and currently has seven offices located in Tampa (2), Orlando, West Palm Beach, Panama City Beach, Santa Rosa Beach and Hudson.
