Engineering design consultancy continues acquisition spree with third deal

Bristol headquartered engineering design, energy and sustainability consultancy Hydrock has made its third acquisition in a year after buying SPLtrack, a Leicestershire-based environmental consultancy.

Founded in 2013, SPLtrack has earned a reputation for delivering real-time noise, vibration, and air quality monitoring data that has made them the leader in supporting industries such as motorsport, live music and construction to achieve strict regulatory compliance.

Led by Chris Beale, SPLtrack’s monitoring solutions provide live insights into environmental data due to integrated connectivity and intelligent power solutions.

Ric Hampton, regional director and director of acoustics and air quality at Hydrock, said: “This is a fantastic addition to the acoustics and air quality division. We’re over the moon to have the opportunity to add such specialist expertise to our already high-performing team. With clients such as Silverstone and MSV circuits, we’re able to accelerate our capabilities in real-time environmental monitoring and play an important role in addressing the public health crisis and meeting new WHO guidance.”

Beale said: “SPLtrack has taken the leap from a small but successful independent company to join the wealth of skill and experience that is Hydrock. The SPLtrack team are excited to work with new colleagues to unlock the strength of our technologies, the ADAhub platform, and to bring new opportunities to the group. Personally, I am delighted to be working alongside engineers that I have known for many years within a company I greatly respect.”

SPLtrack represents Hydrock’s third acquisition in 2022, following the successful integration of 3E Consulting Engineers and CDP.
