The Ramboll Group has entered into an agreement to acquire the US engineering and design consultancy OBG, adding 900 experts within water, energy, environment and advanced manufacturing with effect of 1 January 2019. With the acquisition Ramboll now has 2,000 experts in the US and 15,000 globally.
The acquisition of OBG is an exciting step forward in Ramboll’s strategic ambition to grow in the US and strengthen its portfolio within water, energy and environmental services, making Ramboll a multidisciplinary player in the US.
“We are very excited to be welcoming OBG’s 900 experts to Ramboll,” says Group CEO Jens-Peter Saul. “Growing in North America has been a strategic priority for us since we established our US presence in 2014 with the successful acquisition of ENVIRON.”
“Together with OBG we can build on the platform we have developed in the US. By combining our analytical and consulting-oriented business in the US with the strong project execution capabilities of OBG, we will be able to deliver full-scale, integrated solutions to our clients - from front-end consulting work to back-end execution,” Jens-Peter Saul says.
