URS completes Scott Wilson Group acquisition

Posted on September 15, 2010

URS Corp. completed its acquisition of Scott Wilson Group plc, a London-based infrastructure engineering and construction company.

The addition of Scott Wilson expands URS' international presence by adding a network of 80 offices around the world, including offices in key regional centers such as London, Hong Kong, New Delhi, Warsaw and Dubai, and more than 5,500 employees.

In the U.K., the combination of Scott Wilson with URS' existing operations will create a business with infrastructure expertise across a range of attractive long-term markets, including rail and transit, roads and bridges, and ports and harbors.

With the completion of the Scott Wilson transaction, URS also will add significant international projects outside of the U.K., including the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development in India, Haramain High-Speed Rail in Saudi Arabia and MTR Shatin to Central Link in Hong Kong.
