Systra has acquired engineering firm TSP Projects. It will enable the firm to double the size of its UK & Ireland operations. It is the company’s first major engineering acquisition in the UK and follows the acquisitions of SIAS Transport Planners in 2016 and JMP Consultants Ltd in 2015.
TSP Projects will continue to operate as TSP Projects and run as a business unit of its UK & Ireland operations. The combined company will provide clients with a complete end-to-end service spanning every aspect of rail projects, as well as specialist understanding of mobility and complex infrastructure. It will deliver expertise across the full project lifecycle, from strategic advisory and design to systems integration, programme and construction management, testing & commissioning, and asset management.
The combined company will also give clients access to new digital services, smart technologies, international expertise and proven innovation developed across Systra’s global portfolio of mass transit and mobility projects.
UK clients will benefit from high-end, specialist technical expertise and high-quality production capacity across the full spectrum of design, engineering and programme/construction management. Serving infrastructure owners and operators, as well as contractors, the combined company will deliver specialist design & build, lead designer and programme management services.
Pascal Mercier, Systra Ltd CEO said: “As the signature team for transportation solutions, SYSTRA is committed to providing clients with truly specialist expertise, delivered locally. This acquisition is a gamechanger for our UK & Ireland business, placing us among the leading UK consulting engineering firms. This is a good fit between two like-minded companies with a shared commitment to excellence, safety and innovation.”
