Expanding Services

McCarthy Holdings Inc. completes acquisition of Castle Contracting LLC and CastleGPS LLC to meet client demand for enhanced specialized civil and underground solutions.

McCarthy Holdings Inc. recently finalized the acquisition of St. Louis-based Castle Contracting along with its subsidiary CastleGPS.

Additionally, Castle’s leading-edge GPS technology provides industry-leading subsurface 3-D utility mapping. Castle is now a subsidiary of McCarthy and will continue under the Castle brand name.

Announcing the deal in August, McCarthy Central Division President Scott Wittkop commented, “Civil and infrastructure needs in our communities continue to grow. Together, McCarthy and Castle now offer enhanced specialized civil and underground solutions for clients looking for these services. Our new partnership is a win-win for both organizations and enables us to better fulfill a need for these services that our clients are requesting.”

Castle Founder Julie Ledbetter concurred, “The demand for the services Castle delivers is strong. Since its founding, Castle’s success has been built on outstanding employees focused on delivering exceptional client results. Under the McCarthy umbrella, the opportunities to grow and shape the business further are unlimited.”

Mike Myers, a 13-year Castle veteran and the newly named vice president of operations responsible for day-to-day Castle operations, added, “The commitment and capabilities of our employees has placed us on the edge of truly remarkable possibilities. With the closing of this acquisition, we are excited to move forward with our new McCarthy partners together.”
