Danvers, MA, March 19, 2021 — Hancock Associates, a leading provider of land surveying, civil engineering and wetland science services, proudly announces they have acquired Sherman & Frydryk, LLC, a land surveying and civil engineering firm located in Palmer, Massachusetts. Sherman & Frydryk, with roots dating back to 1950, has an impeccable reputation for quality work and great client service. Their long list of prominent and long-standing clients includes residential and commercial developers, municipalities, service utilities, MassDOT, hospitals and more throughout Hampden, Hampshire and Worcester counties and the surrounding areas.

Sherman & Frydryk will operate as a division of Hancock Associates. Don Frydryk, PE, PLS will serve as Regional Office Manager and the current staff will continue to be part of the Sherman & Frydryk team.

The acquisition assists Hancock in expanding services to Central and Western Massachusetts. It also adds historical survey records from W.H. and H.W. Brainerd, John Casey, Nathaniel Clapp, Charles Dingman, R.O. and G.F. Dingman, Kenneth Sherman, Sherman and Woods, Sherman & Frydryk, Richard Stowe and Arthur Sullivan to Hancock’s impressive collection of land surveying and civil engineering resources.

“Hancock Associates had been looking to expand services to Western Massachusetts and having Sherman & Frydryk as a division checked all the boxes. Our type of clients, quality work and work ethic are very much in sync. I grew up and currently live in the area so it’s a bit of a dream come true for me to assist in the transition and be based in the Palmer office,” said Greg Gould, PLS, Hancock Vice President and Associate.

“Wayne Jalbert, the President of Hancock Associates, and I have known each other since we were at the University of Lowell, now known as the University of Massachusetts Lowell. When we first discussed a possible acquisition, we quickly discovered how much our firms had in common. By becoming a division of Hancock Associates, we’re able to continue providing the highest caliber land surveying and civil engineering work, expand our wetland science services and provide security for our clients and employees,” said Don Frydryk, PE, PLS. “We’re excited about the future.”
