LONGVIEW, TX; January 22, 2013 – Bass Engineering Company, “The Reliable Name in Cathodic Protection” for over forty years, has acquired Corrosion Technical Services LLC (CTS) of Baton Rouge, LA. CTS customers will receive services without disruption and with the benefit of support from Bass Engineering. Founded by Mark Jarreau in 1991, CTS provides cathodic protection services in Louisiana, Texas, Alabama and Mississippi.

With this acquisition, Bass Engineering continues its geographic expansion and adds additional proven, expert resources. Bass services include technical expertise for the design, installation, and maintenance of all types of CP systems, as well as induced AC mitigation systems, cathodic protection material sales and corrosion failure analysis. The company provides a complete catalog of CP materials, including electrical parts, anodes, remote monitoring hardware and more via online store.
“By acquiring CTS, we’ll be able to keep pace with increased demand for cathodic protection services regionally, and position ourselves for future expansion,” said Clay Brelsford, President of Bass Engineering. “Mark has a track record as a leader in the industry and will strengthen our management team with his insights and experience. We are happy to have him on board.”
“Bringing CTS and Bass together was a natural fit. Both companies share a vision of bringing excellent service and materials to oil and gas companies in the Southern US and beyond,” added Jarreau. "I am excited about continuing to serve our customers as well as taking on new opportunities with Bass.”
