Haag Global, Inc., announced today that it has purchased Firensics, Inc., of Midlothian, Texas, to expand its fire origin and cause service offerings.
"I am excited to have Firensics join the growing Haag team," said Justin Kestner, P.E., President and CEO. "Firensics supplements and expands our existing origin and cause investigation services. Firensics' team, reputation, and mission are a great fit, and mirror the quality and integrity that we value so highly at Haag."
Firensics' team of fire origin and cause investigators currently is based in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, but available for fire and explosion investigations in Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma. Firensics is dedicated to constant and clear communication, in-depth investigations, and thorough and expedient reports. In addition to origin and cause investigations, Firensics provides HAZMAT investigations, evidence collection and storage, burn testing, code and research analysis, and expert witness testimony.
Firensics will join Haag Technical Services, which offers specialized consulting services including laser scanning and related services, geographic information systems (GIS) services (including cost-saving survey validation), and inspections by small unmanned aerial vehicle systems (sUAS) to Haag's clients.
