Mott MacDonald has acquired The Kercher Group, a Delaware-based company specializing in transportation asset management and engineering.
With a focus on highways, Kercher brings extensive expertise in pavement, bridge, and maintenance management, supporting state and local agency clients throughout the United States. It also offers nationally recognized expertise in infrastructure asset management systems for the Transportation and Energy Sectors.
“I am very excited by the prospect of integrating Kercher into our organization,” said Nick DeNichilo, CEO and President of Mott MacDonald in North America. “They bring expertise, knowledge, and relationships to our company that, when combined with our capabilities, deepen our ability to serve our clients throughout North America and the world.”
The acquisition also brings digital capabilities and software that analyze deteriorating assets to determine optimal strategies for maintenance and rehabilitation. These service offerings will complement Mott MacDonald’s Fieldbook and Moata solutions.
“I am very impressed by the culture and global reach of Mott MacDonald,” said Steve Varnedoe, President of The Kercher Group. “The desire to have a meaningful impact on the organization and to achieve strategic growth moving forward makes Mott MacDonald the perfect fit for us.”
