Philadelphia, May 2021 — GLOBO Language Solutions recently announced the acquisition of Houston-based Crabtree Interpreting Services, a leading American Sign Language (ASL) interpreting provider.
“Our technology, coupled with Crabtree’s expertise, enables us to deliver better outcomes and increased access to the American Sign Language and Deaf and hard of hearing population,” says GLOBO’s CEO and Founder, Gene Schriver.
Crabtree Interpreting Services was founded in 2012 by Daniel Crabtree and Rachel Brown, both ASL interpreters themselves. Crabtree specializes in providing equal access to communication for people who are Deaf and hard of hearing in educational, social service, and community interpreter settings. The acquisition will expand GLOBO’s ability to service ASL via video interpreting, as well as on-site interpreting throughout the state of Texas.
“Partnering with GLOBO is a natural step for us as we continue to service our mission,” says Crabtree. “We’re excited for the opportunity to strengthen our ability to impact the lives of those in the Deaf and hard of hearing community.”
The announcement of GLOBO’s acquisition of Crabtree Interpreting Services comes during a period of high growth for the Philadelphia-based language services company. In 2020, GLOBO was named to the Inc. 500|5000 List of Fastest Growing Companies for the sixth consecutive year.
