“Looking to retirement, I knew I wanted to find a firm that I could trust to take care of my valued clients and 40 years of important surveying records. I’m thrilled to have found Hancock Associates and will be assisting in the transition to ensure it is seamless for every client,” said Bruce Malcolm, PLS, owner of Land Surveys, Inc.

“Hancock has always been a leader in preserving records so that they may be available for use in perpetuity. In fact, we have a full-time archivist on staff whose sole responsibility is to digitize and catalog thousands of historical records as well as the new ones that are continually being created by the firm. This acquisition helps us continue that tradition and expand Hancock’s land surveying, civil engineering and wetland science services to the South Shore,” said Hancock president, Wayne Jalbert.
