AECOM Technology Corp., a Los Angeles-based provider of professional technical and management support services for government and commercial clients around the world, has announced its acquisition of Capital Engineering Corp. (CEC), an environmental and engineering consultancy firm based in Taiwan.

With 160 employees based in Taipei and Kaohsiung, CEC specializes in environmental, water, hydraulic and land development engineering consulting services for clients in Taiwan’s public and private sectors. The company, founded in 1988, provides a wide array of services, including those related to water treatment, river management, industrial park development, environmental surveys and environmental impact assessments.

“CEC’s 24-year track record of providing specialized environmental and engineering services in Taiwan expands our footprint in Asia, which reflects our commitment to growth in new and emerging markets,” says AECOM chairman and CEO John Dionisio. “CEC will serve as a natural fit within AECOM’s global environment and water practices. We are pleased to welcome CEC into the AECOM family, and look forward to strengthening our integrated offerings to the clients of both firms.”

“Joining AECOM allows us to offer new services within Taiwan and across Asia to meet our growing client demands,” says CEC president Davy Huang. “Additionally, as we grow in Asia, we will be able to provide more professional and career development opportunities for our staff.”
