Engineering Firm Psomas Acquires Seattle-Based Firm KPG

SEATTLE, WA — Engineering consulting firm Psomas announces it has expanded its service capabilities and geographic footprint to serve the Pacific Northwest through the acquisition of Seattle-based KPG. KPG, known for its focus on interdisciplinary design, planning, and surveying, is now KPG-Psomas.

"We've become deeply familiar with KPG's caliber of projects, vision, and broad range of planning, design, and construction services," said Psomas CEO Steve Margaroni. "Plus, over the last several years, we've developed a trusting relationship with KPG, based on mentorship and our similar cultures. It's the ideal time to move forward together."

KPG's over 100 employees will join forces with Psomas' employee base of over 600 in 13 offices throughout Arizona, California, and Utah. KPG's staff adds new strengths that will complement the Psomas brand, including landscape architecture and urban design presence.

"KPG is eager to join Psomas because it will allow us to grow and identify new opportunities in surveying, construction management, environmental, and engineering," said KPG CEO Sessyle Asato, PE. "KPG will continue to deliver a high level of services with additional technologies and support."

With the expanded team, Psomas seeks to foster environments where team members can thrive while making a lasting impact in the communities collectively served.
