A long-time Sanborn partner, Tri-State Consulting Services is a mapping company whose primary business focus is cadastral mapping, annual maintenance, aerial photography, custom applications software, and web-based map solutions. The recent growth of the company's business brought an increased need for additional resources. Tri-State chose Sanborn's San Antonio office for its stable market focus, on-site production capabilities and applications. After the acquisition, Tri-State's Texas office will do business as Williams-Stackhouse, Inc.
The sale is part of Sanborn's ongoing efforts to refine its overall business strategy and market focus. Sanborn and Williams-Stackhouse will continue to team up to pursue new opportunities for aerial mapping services.
"This agreement is a win for both companies," said Copple. "Most importantly, the transaction further strengthens our model, which is client-focused. We are delighted to have the opportunity to partner with Tri-State Consulting in this transaction. Tri-State has experience and a growth- oriented long-term approach to building value in our industry. With the two companies as partners, both companies' market coverage is improved."
"This transaction will enhance our competitive position and provide us the ability to operate effectively in this region," said Jeff Cooke, Tri-State's president. "We look forward to working with Sanborn and building on our strategic plan to focus on our core technologies and business processes."
