TRC, a leading provider of end-to-end engineering, consulting and construction management solutions fueled by innovative technology, received a Business Achievement Award for growth and innovation yesterday from the Environmental Business Journal for its 2018 acquisition of Vali Cooper & Associates.
TRC acquired the California-based infrastructure and construction management firm last June. It was the company’s first major acquisition after going private in a 2017 sale to New Mountain Capital.
“The acquisition of Vali Cooper was a continuation of our disciplined growth strategy and further cemented our position as a leading provider of integrated services in one of the leading infrastructure markets in the world,” said Jim Stephenson, TRC’s Chief Strategy Officer. “With New Mountain Capital’s support going forward, we are better positioned than ever to continue investing in the business and accelerating our growth initiatives.”
Thanks to the Vali Cooper & Associates acquisition, TRC now has 600 employees in California providing a full complement of engineering and construction management services in the infrastructure, oil and gas, environmental and power markets.
“In what is widely regarded as a stable market, a number of companies exceeded the norms of low single-digit growth with double-digit growth or ambitious ventures into new practice areas or technology development,” said Grant Ferrier, president of Environmental Business International Inc., publisher of Environmental Business Journal.
The 2018 EBJ awards were presented at the Environmental Industry Summit XVII in San Diego on March 20.
