Seattle Firm Acquires Noise Mitigation Company

By Mark Edward Nero

Seattle-based naval architecture and marine engineering consultancy Glosten has acquired Noise Control Engineering, a Massachusetts-based acoustical engineering firm that specializes in noise and vibration control for marine, industrial and commercial environments.

Glosten revealed the acquisition Sept. 1.

Noise Control Engineering, which will continue to operate under that name, is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Glosten and will maintain its current offices in Billerica, Massachusetts and Mobile, Alabama and continue to serve its clientele as an independent group within the Glosten organization.
For over 55 years, Glosten has grown carefully, responding to the unique and challenging needs of our clients, Glosten President Jay Edgar said. Joining with NCE is an exciting next step. We are adding resources and capabilities that will allow us each to offer a more comprehensive scope of services while maintaining our individual identities and industry focus.

NCE President and founder Ray Fischer said this transition ensures the success of NCE over the long term.

We have collaborated with Glosten for over 20 years on many fascinating projects, he said. Its great to join an organization that shares our client-focused culture.
