FMI Capital Advisors is pleased to announce the merger of Carolina Environmental Contracting, Inc. (CEC), a construction firm specializing in stormwater solutions, with RES, the nation’s largest environmental services operating company providing ecological restoration and water resource solutions to the public and private sector.
