Two Stateside engineering giants have announced their merger to improve their nationwide presence across the United States and benefit from one-another’s expertise.
KJWW Engineering and TTB Engineers will continue to operate separately in 30 separate locations and all 900 staff will keep their jobs. TTG’s experience in the entertainment sector will enable KJWW to develop their understanding of that sector whilst KJWW can provide information to their new partners regarding their strengths in medical equipment planning.
One of the main reasons for the coalition is apparently improve the ‘scale’ of both companies to ensure that they can win Building Information Modelling projects. According to Construction Dive, smaller companies in the States are deemed less relevant when it comes to BIM prowess, so the pairing of KJWW and TTG will boost their chances.
“We chose a merger with KJWW because of its strong reputation and similar market focus,” explained Zareh Astourian, President of TTG. “Culturally, it was a great fit. We both share the same commitment to our clients and quality standards.”
Creating new alliances is clearly important to KJWW’s President Paul VanDuyne too as he believes more could happen in the future: “I don’t think this is the last time you’re going to hear from us about expanding across the country,” he said.
