Kappa Mapping Inc. in Bangor and Cornerstone Energy Services, based in Worcester, Mass., have reached an agreement to consolidate their companies.

Terms of the deal, which was announced in a news release last week, were not disclosed.

The partnership “will enable clients in the energy, municipal and environmental industries to take advantage of a wide variety of mapping, surveying, engineering and land services,” the companies said in the release.

Kappa Mapping, whose founder and President Claire Kiedrowski was honored by Mainebiz as a “Woman to Watch” in 2013, will continue to operate from its Bangor office, but now will be able to offer mapping services from all the Cornerstone locations throughout the United States. 

"Cornerstone is a great fit for Kappa,” Kiedrowski said in the news release. “Our team looks forward to diversifying our mapping services and expanding our geographic reach by taking advantage of their national reputation in the energy industry."

The combined companies will have a workforce of 95 employees located in nine states.

In addition to Worcester, Cornerstone has offices in Plymouth, Mass.; Plantsville, Conn.,; Hailey, Idaho; South Portland; Groveton, N.H.; Manchester, N.H.; Millstone Township, N.J.; Houston, Texas; Odessa, Texas; Vancouver, Wash.; and Morgantown, W.Va., Mainebiz’s sister publication, the Worcester Business Journal, reported on Friday. 

Founded in 2012, Cornerstone provides engineering, survey and real estate services to the energy infrastructure industry. Kappa, founded in 2003, provides a wide range of aerial photography, photogrammetry and digital mapping services for clients that include architects, engineers, surveyors, developers, airport planners, utility firms, municipalities and government agencies.

“We have known Kappa for many years and have always appreciated their high-quality services,” said Steve Sawyer, vice president of Cornerstone. “We are delighted to have them be part of the Cornerstone family.”
