We are pleased to announce that CHA and RW Armstrong, both large, multi-discipline engineering consulting companies, have merged to create a 1,250 person global firm.
RW Armstrong, which is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of CHA, will retain its name. RW Armstrong has 11 offices in the United States, and five offices in the Middle East, North Africa, Azerbaijan and the Pacific. CHA has 30 offices stretching from Maine to Florida and Texas.
"We are very excited," said Ray Rudolph, CHA’s CEO, "because both firms can now provide a range of services over a much larger international footprint. Our combined resources and size allow us to be even more competitive in seeking major projects." He also noted that together, the two firms will create added value for their clients as well as more career opportunities for their staffs.
"This merger unites two firms with a common strategic vision and a powerhouse of talent," said Jim Wade, RW Armstrong’s President. "Our clients’ success depends on our ability to be innovative and agile so they can in turn deliver exceptional value to their clients. The broader mix of services assembled positions us to better meet their complex business needs." He noted that CHA has substantial expertise and experience in providing services to industry, transportation agencies, colleges and universities, and energy utilities.
The merger creates a firm with total revenues in excess of $210 million, thus making it one of the nation’s 60 largest engineering companies. CHA anticipates having a workforce of 2,000 people by 2016.
