Veco Acquisition.

Veco International Inc. purchased Eastwind Inc., a 20-year Anchorage-based civil construction firm, for an undisclosed amount. Following a series of 12 joint ventures between the two companies starting in 1990, Eastwind became a Veco subsidiary in January. Jerry Harman, founder, remains president.

Eastwind started as a small firm that developed subdivisions and grew to be one of the largest civil construction and general contractors in Alaska. The firm has managed building projects of more than $35 million and has operated more than 200 pieces of equipment. Eastwind worked on the largest road contract to date awarded by the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, the extension of the six-lane Minnesota Bypass highway. Eastwind's current projects include construction of the new Wasilla Airport and improvements to the Glenn Highway.
