Artera completes acquisition of K.R. Swerdfeger Construction

Artera Services, a provider of integrated infrastructure services to natural gas and electric industries, has completed the previously announced acquisition of K.R. Swerdfeger Construction (KRSC). The acquisition will expand the former’s expansion of gas distribution services into Colorado and New Mexico while strengthening its existing water and wastewater service offerings.

Brian Palmer, CEO of Artera, said: “Extending our footprint westward has been a strategic priority for Artera. With the addition of KRSC, we’ve found the right partner to add to the Artera family and we’re excited for the collective opportunities this creates for our businesses.”

KRSC will operate as a new Mountain region within Miller Pipeline, an Artera gas distribution business unit. Raymund Swerdfeger, president of KRSC, will continue to lead KRSC, reporting to Dale Anderson, president of Miller Pipeline.

“This is a great moment in our company’s history and I’m excited to partner with Dale to continue to grow Miller’s business in the west. Our team members are thrilled to be part of a larger, growing company with new opportunities for career growth,” Swerdfeger concluded.
