“RBA is our largest acquisition since 2010. With the acquisition of RBA we are significantly expanding the reach of our infrastructure vertical to capture key clients and markets in the Northeast,” said Dickerson Wright, PE, Chairman and CEO of NV5. “This is especially critical to our efforts to increase operating margins and profitability through cross-selling and synergies among our five service lines. While RBA has been a very successful and respected standalone business for more than 40 years, I am confident that the highly experienced infrastructure engineers at RBA will benefit greatly from the ability to collaborate with the construction quality assurance, program management, and environmental services groups that we have built up throughout the East Coast in the last year, and vice versa,” he added.
“The RBA team is extremely excited about joining the NV5 organization and looks forward to the opportunity to participate in projects geographically where NV5 already exists, and with the support of other areas of expertise existing in NV5, the team expects to provide additional services to our large existing client base,” said Neil Bernstein, PE, President and CEO of RBA.
