GE buys MJ Harden

Pipeline GIS specialist MJ Harden will be subsumed into GE’s Oil and Gas unit—combining engineering with application software and data management.

GE Power Systems has acquired pipeline GIS specialists M.J. Harden Inc. (MJH). The company will integrate the UK-based pipeline integrity division of GE’s PII Pipeline Solutions unit—part of GE Power Systems’ Oil & Gas business.


GE Oil & Gas president Claudi Santiago said, “The acquisition combines PII’s engineering knowledge and best practices for pipeline integrity management with MJH’s software and data management capabilities. This will offer enhanced decision support and greater efficiency in our clients’ pipeline maintenance operations and planning.


MJH president Ron Domsch added, “This acquisition is a merger of strengths. Adding our expertise and experience to GE’s resources will create one of the pipeline industry’s most comprehensive packages of integrity management products and services.” MJH offers consulting, database design, data conversion and integration, software application development, photogrammetry and digital mapping. Primary industries served include oil and gas transmission, oil, gas and municipal utilities, pipeline construction, and government.
