APRIL 2023 Newsletter

has joined with THE MANNIK & SMITH GROUP

From our humble beginnings more than 30 years ago, AFFILIATED RESEARCHERS is proud to announce that our services and capabilities have been acquired by the Mannik & Smith Group, a premier multi-disciplined consulting firm with offices in Michigan and Ohio (https://manniksmithgroup.com).

Since 1990, AFFILIATED RESEARCHERS has provided high quality environmental and technical services in the Great Lakes Region and nationwide, for municipalities, public utilities, environmental-engineering firms, oil and gas companies, land and water development companies, Fortune 500 companies, and the State and Federal agencies to include the DOD, DHS, NOAA, USACE, USEPA, and USFS.

The Mannik & Smith Group will continue providing AFFILIATED RESEARCHERS’ high-quality services from our facility in East Tawas, Michigan. The Mannik & Smith Group will also provide additional resources to support a greater range of environmental and engineering services.

Rollin Reineck, with his 40+ years of experience, will continue in a semi-retirement capacity as a consultant with the Mannik & Smith Group to help ensure a smooth, seamless transition for our clients. Rollin will also continue to manage the smaller and limited AFFILIATED RESEARCHERS entity if needed to facilitate any previously existing contracts.

Shannon Reineck, with her 30+ years of experience with AFFILIATED RESEARCHERS, will become a full-time employee at the Mannik & Smith Group and continue to serve as the Manager at the East Tawas facility.

AFFILIATED RESEARCHERS’ excellent staff will become Mannik & Smith Group’s staff and continue as before in providing excellent service.

The Mannik & Smith Group will expand and increase AFFILIATED RESEARCHERS’ previously offered services by means of its larger support team and capabilities. The compatible cultures of these two firms will further ensure a smooth transition for all involved.

This is an exciting development which will enable AFFILIATED RESEARCHERS to pass on its legacy to the trusted hands of the Mannik & Smith Group, who will continue offering our same specialized services.
