SYSTRA is doubling the size of its UK & Ireland operations through the acquisition of TSP Projects, a multidisciplinary engineering firm founded in 1987 with a rich heritage in rail. This investment reinforces SYSTRA’s longstanding commitment to the UK, where it has been active for 50 years.
By acquiring TSP Projects, SYSTRA is cementing its position as a major UK force in engineering and consultancy for mass transit, mobility and complex infrastructure. SYSTRA is already number five globally among mass transit and rail international design firms*, and the acquisition places the company firmly alongside the UK’s leading consulting engineering firms.
Pascal Mercier, SYSTRA Ltd CEO said: “As the signature team for transportation solutions, SYSTRA is committed to providing clients with truly specialist expertise, delivered locally. This acquisition is a game-changer for our UK & Ireland business, placing us among the leading UK consulting engineering firms. This is a good fit between two like-minded companies with a shared commitment to excellence, safety and innovation.”
Craig Scott, TSP Projects CEO added: “This is a great opportunity for TSP Projects staff, clients and partners. SYSTRA is a like-minded organisation with similar values and a focus on technical excellence. SYSTRA ownership will bring with it all the benefits of a global engineering business including access to high calibre technical expertise to complement and enhance TSP Projects.”
