Mason Dixon Energy, OGM Land and Percheron Merge, Form a Nationwide Land Services Company

Texas Business reports: HOUSTON—Three land services providers – Mason Dixon Energy, OGM Land and Percheron –are merging to form Percheron LLC, a fully-integrated land services provider capable of serving clients coast-to-coast. 

The combined organization will be headquartered in Houston, but will have the geographic reach and staff capacity to serve the entire country through its team of more than 1,000 working out of 43 offices in 17 states.

“Our clients with complex large-scale land projects are seeking land service providers with the capabilities to expertly manage all aspects of these projects,” said Asa Bowers, chief executive of West Virginia-based Mason Dixon Energy, in a prepared statement. “This merger brings together market leaders with the necessary specialized expertise in land, right of way, surveying and environmental services to handle large-scale projects anywhere in the United States.”

Each company will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Percheron LLC with leadership and client relationships remaining intact.  For a transitional period, the companies will continue using their existing names, while leveraging opportunities for operational efficiencies and sharing resources and best practices.

“We're confident this merger will greatly benefit current and future clients as the best practices of each of these market leaders are combined,”said Mike Fleniken, chief executive of Simonton, Texas-based OGM Land, in a statement.   “This merger will allow for ongoing investment in people, systems, processes and new specialties, driving greater efficiencies, a deeper resource pool, access to more skilled workers and the ability to handle projects of all shapes and sizes from coast to coast.”

Percheron LLC will be governed by a board of directors made up of current management from each of the companies.

“As a result of this merger, Percheron employees will enjoy new professional growth and advancement opportunities, access to best practices and high-level training, improved benefits and competitive compensation, as well as additional relocation opportunities due to a vastly expanded geographic footprint,” said Trent Oglesby, chief executive of Houston-based Percheron Acquisitions, in a statement.  “Percheron employees can also expect enhanced job stability as part of a larger, stronger organization focused on continued growth.”
