While attending the Pennsylvania Land Surveyor’s Conference, Bill Beitler, PLS (owner of Beitler Land Surveying) discussed his plans to retire with an acquaintance, who handed him the business card of Joe Hunt, owner of JHA Companies. Shortly thereafter, Bill reached out to Joe to discuss the possibility of selling his business, and the rest is history. Excited with the acquisition, Bill said, “It’s amazing how the plan came together.” Beitler’s current staff will join the JHA team, and includes Dean Zimmerman, PLS, Scot Dietrich, PLS, Chris Molloy, and Wanda Fretz. Bill Beitler will provide as-needed consultation service to JHA, ensuring a smooth transition for all, and will also begin his transition into retirement after 41 successful years of professional service.

Joe Hunt reports, “The acquisition of Beitler Land Surveying is a strategic move to expand our core business into southeast Pennsylvania where I began my career. Having this local presence in the Lehigh Valley, we will most effectively serve clients in Berks, Lehigh, Northampton, Schuylkill, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery Counties. I am thrilled to announce that George White, Senior Project Manager and Environmental Specialists, will lead our new office location in Fogelsville. George has worked for JHA since 2011 from a home office in Lehigh County, and he looks forward to serving our new team of professionals in Fogelsville.”

JHA Companies has immediate plans to hire a licensed professional engineer with land development experience to serve as a Senior Project Manager and a Land Surveying Technician with 1-5 years of experience with at least an Associate’s Degree in Land Surveying.
