AXIS GeoSpatial acquires Mapping Resource Group, Inc.


US: AXIS GeoSpatial, LLC, a national geocapture firm headquartered in Maryland, has recently acquired Mapping Resource Group, Inc. (MRG GEO), a geospatial solutions company with locations in Florida and Virginia.  MRG GEO began providing professional geospatial services in 2001 as Southern Resource Mapping, Inc., later rebranding as Mapping Resource Group, Inc. in 2015. Since inception, MRG GEO has experienced steady growth by continuously leveraging professional knowledge and cutting-edge technologies to expand and improve its service portfolio, geographic reach and new markets.  The firm has a particularly strong presence in the Southeastern U.S. and the Caribbean.

Like MRG GEO, AXIS GeoSpatial also began providing geospatial services in 2001, and has grown from a staff of three since its inception to presently employ over 40 individuals across three locations in Maryland, Delaware and Colorado. AXIS has maintained a strong foothold in the Mid-Atlantic and North Eastern regions of the U.S. In 2014, CEO and co-founder Justin Lahman formed Maryland-based aviation company of then three, but presently 11 employees, AXIS GeoAviation; making AXIS a full-service geospatial data collection, processing and mapping firm. AXIS retained MRG GEO’s sales, map production, and aviation personnel in the merger, expanding its geographical reach to the entire eastern region of the U.S. and adding additional map production capacity to better serve its clients.

AXIS CEO, Justin Lahman shared “This acquisition benefits all parties in that it delivers additional geospatial services to existing MRG clients, a greater geographic reach for existing AXIS clients, and the combined knowledge and experience of both firms as an asset moving forward.”

AXIS GeoSpatial sought the merger to capitalize on both firms’ reputations of technical excellence, quality service and on-time delivery. The merger allows AXIS and MRG’s clients greater access to leading-edge High-Definition LiDAR and imagery acquisition and processing, orthoimagery processing, topographic mapping, 3D-Modeling, and geospatial map production services outside of both firms’ respective footprints in the Eastern U.S. MRG GEO will undergo a rebranding in the next several months, where it will transition into conducting business as AXIS GeoSpatial under the parent company’s brand.
