BALTIMORE, Md. — Structural Preservation Systems, a division of Structural Group, announced the acquisition of Salem Contracting, a leading repair and restoration company primarily serving the Southeast United States.

Structural Group is the largest specialty repair and restoration company in the United States and has divisions in Europe and the Middle East. Structural primarily focuses on construction problems related to concrete, steel, masonry, wood and foundation soils. The company provides engineered construction services and technologies that solve problems and improve investments for its industrial and commercial clients, globally.

Peter Emmons, CEO of Structural Group, shared that “the addition of the Salem Contracting team further strengthens our ability to provide extraordinary service and value for our clients in the Southeast. This highly experienced team of professionals brings additional capabilities and provides superior solutions for water intrusion and structural damage for the entire building envelope.”

Gary Moore, President of Salem Contracting, commented that “becoming part of the Structural team now allows us to provide services unmatched in our industry. We continue to be exceptionally responsive with local service, but now have access to global resources, capabilities and technologies that expand our ability to help clients solve problems and improve their investments.” Moore will be a key leader driving continued expansion of services locally, regionally and nationally.

Structural utilizes a proprietary approach and capabilities that solve the most common root causes of construction issues. This includes insufficient structural strength to achieve performance requirements, inadequate moisture control which causes deterioration, and structural vulnerability to natural disasters and security threats. The company is known for innovative solutions that improve investments including value engineered systems that lower installed costs, preventative maintenance that reduce overall expense and life-cycle extension to reduce lifetime expenditures.
