Montgomery Watson and Harza Engineering Company have merged to form an organisation that both partners say could turnover a billion dollars a year.
The newly merged montgomery-watson-harza (MWH) Global fields some 5500 employees in 30 countries and is based in Pasadena, California.
Montgomery Watson is among the largest privately-held companies in the US and specialises in water, wastewater and environmental infrastructure design, construction, finance, operations and maintenance.
Harza is a leading player in the hydro and energy industries. Last year the two companies generated combined revenues in excess of US$700 million.
"MWH commands significant expertise and market presence in some of the most promising sectors of infrastructure development around the world," said Robert Uhler, the new organisation’s chief executive officer.
MWH Global chairman Murli Tolaney added: "Infrastructure clients today demand one-stop-shopping and results-oriented solutions to their needs. Competition to provide those solutions is intense and, with the impact of new technologies, increasingly global in scope. In such an operating environment, the advantages of size, efficiency and breadth of service are enormous."
The organisation’s European arm, MWH Europe, is based at High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire in the UK and has responsibility for the company’s operations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
