Aperture announces the acquisition of Scientific Analysis, Inc.

Aperture, LLC, a Trinity Hunt Partners (THP) portfolio company, announced its partnership with Scientific Analysis, Inc. (SAI) today. SAI, founded by Steve Irwin in 1990, is a premier provider of accident reconstruction forensic engineering services based in Dallas, Texas.

“We are excited to welcome our new SAI colleagues to the Aperture team,” said Robert E. Joyce, Jr., President and CEO of Aperture. “It is a true privilege to partner with someone of Steve’s professionalism and experience, as well as to have the opportunity to work with a group as talented and experienced as SAI. This is a major milestone in our evolution, and we are looking forward to unleashing the full client value creation potential of our combined organizations.”

Steve Irwin, President of SAI, said, “Our partnership with Aperture, Wexco and THP is the next step in our continued maturation as a company. Our partnering has created a larger organization in which SAI’s team members can continue their own growth and provides them a larger company in which to pursue a wider array of professional interests. The Aperture leadership has zeroed in on providing excellent service to the client base we’ve worked the last 30 years to create, and the SAI team looks forward to helping this larger group achieve its goals.”

Pete Stein, THP Managing Partner and Chairman of Aperture, added, “Aperture’s partnership with SAI is a perfect example of our intention to build a diversified, forensic engineering services leader with a passionate focus on exceptional service quality for our clients and extraordinary work experience for our employees.”
