COLUMBIA, MD (January 3, 2016) – Structural Group, Inc. has acquired four of the operating units within the TOPCOR Companies, LLC group through an asset acquisition. Those operating companies are: TOPCOR Services, LLC, TOPCOR Offshore, LLC, TOPCOR Augusta, LLC and TOPCOR Mechanical, LLC. 

Founded in 1989 and based in Baton Rouge, LA, TOPCOR, provides structural restoration and protection services to the chemical, petro-chemical, pulp and paper, power, municipal and federal markets. 

"TOPCOR will increase our capabilities, resources, and presence in the gulf coast and the southeastern region of the United States," said Peter Emmons, President and CEO of Structural Group. "By adding TOPCOR, we have strengthened our team and will have more than 230 additional experienced technicians providing services throughout the industrial and power markets with focused expertise in chemical processing and pulp and paper. TOPCOR’s commitment to quality and safety, approach to customer service and dedication to employee training are a great match to Structural Group’s mission, values, and operating principles.”

“Peter and his group have built a very impressive organization. Their ability to integrate technologies engineering and construction is a great added benefit to TOPCOR’s specialized contracting service,“ said James Baker, CEO and founder of TOPCOR Companies. “We at TOPCOR have always looked to Structural Group as the leader in this industry.”

STRUCTURAL has a strong presence in the south, with offices in Houston, Lake Charles, and Baton Rouge. The combination of STRUCTURAL’s strength in the refining industry and TOPCOR’s strength in the chemical processing industry and pulp and paper provides a great complement of expertise and industry knowledge that will allow us to better serve all our clients.

James Baker will join STRUCTURAL as Vice President of a new division that will include the previous TOPCOR’s offices in Baton Rouge, LA, Augusta, GA, and Charleston, SC, as well as STRUCTURAL’s current Baton Rouge office. 

Two remaining entities from the TOPCOR Companies group, US Fusion, LLC, and US Railroad, LLC, will continue to operate separately and will not be associated with Structural Group.

The transaction was completed on January 1, 2016.  For more information, go to or
