CRS Consulting Engineers of Salt Lake City has acquired Kellco Engineers Inc., a 16-year-old Ogden consulting firm. The merger is effective Nov. 1 and brings the CRS staff to 25 professional engineers and support personnel in the two Utah offices and an office in Las Vegas.

Paul Hirst, CRS president, said the addition of Kellco as the Ogden branch of CRS allows the company to better serve the engineering needs of the Wasatch Front. Mike Kelley, Kellco founder who has worked on golf course irrigation pumping systems and road and utility work, will manage the Ogden office.
