TranSystems of Kansas City, Mo., and Lichtenstein Consulting Engineers, headquartered in Paramus, N.J., have joined into a single entity, combining two firms with a profound focus on transportation into one. The combined strength of the now-integrated companies results in a national transportation powerhouse of nearly 1,300 professionals in 45 offices.
"This is an outstanding combination and a natural partnership," Brian Larson, president and CEO of TranSystems, said. "I don't know a firm more highly regarded in transportation in the country than Lichtenstein, particularly in the area of bridge design. There is an unusually powerful agreement between us as to the nature of the transportation challenge and the solutions we can bring to that challenge."
Charles Minervino, Lichtenstein principal, commented: "We at Lichtenstein are excited to join the TranSystems team that has become such a vibrant force across the transportation spectrum. Our markets and services are remarkably complementary. Together, our firms can provide expanded integrated services to the transportation community while maintaining both firms' personal commitment to exceptional client relationships."
