Barton & Loguidice Announces Acquisition of Pennsylvania Firm

May 16, 2022

Barton & Loguidice welcomes AJC Professional Services, LLC (AJC). AJC, with offices in Pittsburgh and Harrisburg, PA, specializes in Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) consulting engineering services to private, institutional and public sector clients in the Mid-Atlantic. This acquisition takes place a year after acquiring Traffic Solutions in Maine.

With the move, B&L will add an office in Pittsburgh, PA, with AJC Founder, Eric Horvat, P.E., serving as Vice President and Branch Manager. AJC’s existing Harrisburg office will integrate into B&L’s existing Camp Hill office, giving the firm a total of 17 offices in six states and 350 professionals.

Horvat has more than 20 years of experience in the design, construction and commissioning of mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems for industrial, municipal, commercial, educational and government building facilities.  He has worked on multiple LEED projects, designing, analyzing and reviewing systems focused on minimizing energy costs, life cycle cost analysis and operational efficiency. Licensed in eleven states (PA, VA, MD, NJ, NY, OH, WV, DE, DC, CA, FL, TX), Horvat has developed a robust list of clientele over his career, from Federal Government, Army Corps of Engineers and The Pennsylvania State University to numerous private clients. “We look forward to all the opportunities this combined effort will bring in the areas of client service, project development and staff growth,” said Horvat. The acquisition of AJC will bring six additional technical staff to B&L’s growing presence in the Pennsylvania and Mid-Atlantic markets.

“This acquisition fortifies our depth in servicing B&L’s Mid-Atlantic clientele, while continuing to expand our geographic footprint into western Pennsylvania,” said B&L President & CEO John F. Brusa, Jr., P.E.  “We are excited to have AJC join our growing B&L team.”
