Artera Services acquires 1127 Construction

Artera Services, one of the nation’s industry-leading providers of essential infrastructure services to the natural gas and electric industries, acquired the operating assets of 1127 Construction. 1127 is a strong strategic fit for Artera, expanding its core gas distribution services in northeast Ohio.

“We look forward to welcoming Jeff, Nick, and the entire 1127 team to Artera,” said Brian Palmer, CEO of Artera. “Joining our current gas distribution operations in the area with 1127 is a great way for us to expand our footprint and service capabilities in the region.”

Located in northeast Ohio, 1127 is a family-owned company founded in 2005 providing natural gas distribution and related infrastructure services. The acquisition will expand existing operations in the Ohio Region of Miller Pipeline, an Artera gas distribution business unit, and build on the core service offering of maintenance, replacement, and upgrade (MRU) services. Jeff and Nick Smith will continue to lead business operations and will be overseen by Jim Wilson, Miller Pipeline vice president of construction over the Ohio Region.

“When my brothers and I started 1127 back in 2005, we did so because we had a passion for the construction industry and wanted to build and improve our underground infrastructure," said Jeff Smith. "We are exceedingly proud of our strong safety record and the relationships we have built over the last 17 years. Joining forces with a respected business like Miller Pipeline is the logical next step in that journey.”
