Barr acquires Marquez Environmental Services, Inc.

May 2, 2019

Barr has acquired Marquez Environmental Services Inc., a Denver-based woman-owned small business providing environmental management consulting services. The acquisition expands Barr’s capacity to provide environmental permitting and compliance services to the upstream and midstream oil and gas industry as well as to other industries in Colorado and surrounding states. 

Lori Marquez, the firm’s owner, noted that, “We’ve been working with Barr on projects in the western US and have seen that there’s a good fit between our companies—we work well together.”

Formed in 1998, Marquez Environmental Services Inc. has provided air quality, engineering, and management services and has built long-standing relationships with federal, state, and local government agencies. Twenty of the firm’s employees joined Barr.

Barr’s CEO John Lee said, “Joining forces with Marquez Environmental Services enables us to expand the range of environmental services we offer clients and prospective clients,” adding that “we’re also pleased to establish a Denver base with a team of experienced colleagues.”
