CMTA Inc. merges with TMR Engineering
CMTA Inc. is increasing its presence in the Washington, D.C. Metro area via a merger with TMR Engineering (Arlington, Virginia). The transaction was facilitated by Zweig Group and closed on January 1, 2016.
Zweig Group helped identify potential matches in the D.C. Metro area to find a merger candidate to help establish a physical presence, expand capabilities, add to existing capabilities, and bring in an existing regional client base. ZG facilitated contact between CMTA and TMR leadership leading to the agreement execution.
“CMTA's practice in the D.C. area has been expanding in the past three years, and we felt that a D.C. presence was necessary to serve our D.C., Virginia and Maryland clients. CMTA and TMR share similar cultures and we were impressed the quality of their engineering staff. Their CHP expertise aligns well with our Net Zero Energy expertise,” said Kenneth L. Seibert, PE, CMTA president.
"Throughout the years, TMR has been focused on providing great service to our clients. CMTA shares our values and is just as passionate about the built environment as we are. This alignment means we can offer additional services like performance contracting, security/technology design, fire protection engineering and commissioning,” said Thomas Rohrbaugh, PE, CMTA D.C. principal.
With the addition of TMR, CMTA now has six offices in four states: Kentucky, Texas, Indiana, Ohio, and the D.C. Metro area. The firm employs 160 people including 70 licensed professional engineers.
