EverLine Announces Acquisition of C&M Regulatory Pipeline Consultants, Expanding its Utility Operation
EverLine, a leading provider of compliance and technical energy services, today announced that it has completed the acquisition of C&M Regulatory Pipeline Consultants (“C&M”). C&M is owned by Michael Comstock and Robert Miller, utility industry experts, who will join EverLine as Principal Advisors in EverLine’s expansion into the utility market.
EverLine added Michael Bradley (Director of Utility Services) to its team in early 2022 and has since built a unique strategy for assisting utility customers of all sizes. By offering fully integrated compliance, integrity, SCADA/IT, control room, and security services, EverLine is able to offer smaller municipalities and larger utilities alike access to high-quality, unique solutions at a fraction of the cost of performing the services internally. The acquisition of C&M further advances EverLine’s strategy by adding deep expertise and trusted customer relationships, allowing EverLine to continue its growth trajectory while ensuring that customers remain the top priority.
“EverLine is honored to team with Michael Comstock and Robert Miller to advance safety and compliance in the utility industry. Their knowledge and experience are unmatched, and I am confident our internal team and customers will benefit greatly from this combination.”
Louis Krannich, President of EverLine
“Speaking on behalf of C&M, we are very excited about joining the Everline team. It is our sincerest belief that together, Everline and C&M will be able to provide a level of service to regulated, and currently unregulated, utilities that until now was not available, or affordable, to small and midsize pipeline operators.”
Robert Miller, co-founder of C&M
"C&M’s focus on safety and integrity toward compliance with regulatory and operational requirements for utilities is clearly united with EverLine’s commitment to the same. Together the strategic alignment of EverLine and C&M will provide a positive impact and standard of success for utilities that utilize the distinguished offerings both companies currently deliver.”
Financial details of the transactions were not disclosed.
