SYSTRA is pleased to announce the acquisition of JMP

As part of their global growth initiative SYSTRA has acquired JMP Consultants Limited in the UK. The integration of JMP will substantially increase the Transport Planning and Engineering resource of SYSTRA Ltd in the UK & Ireland. This is predicted to bring SYSTRA into the top 5 Transport Planning companies in the UK & Ireland in terms of turnover. This will allow the combined company to offer its clients a greater breadth and depth of expertise in all aspects of the transport sector.

Aidan Eaglestone, SYSTRA Ltd Divisional Director, Consultancy
"I am delighted to welcome JMP staff to SYSTRA. The acquisition is a critical element of SYSTRA’s overall growth plan and demonstrates our commitment to the UK & Irish markets."

The combined entity will substantially expand the SYSTRA service offer across a combined client base. Specific areas where the existing SYSTRA capability in the UK will be significantly enhanced include:

  • Civil, structural & water engineering
  • Development planning
  • Development management
  • Influencing travel behaviour
  • Passenger transport
  • Environmental assessment

JMP’s Executive Director, Alan James
"This is a fantastic opportunity for our motivated and professional staff at JMP to join forces with one of the global leaders in the transport business. I have no doubt that the combined businesses will go forward to deliver excellence outcomes from the many new and exciting challenges that will undoubtedly come their way."

The acquisition of JMP is important to the growth aspirations of the wider SYSTRA Group, which has identified the UK & Ireland as one of its four major global growth areas. This is one of a number of recent acquisitions as part of this growth initiative with other major companies in India and South America recently integrated into the SYSTRA group.

SYSTRA’s Chief Executive Officer, Pierre VERZAT
"The acquisition of JMP is part of SYSTRA’s 2018 growth plan. The United Kingdom is a key country for the Group’s development. With the acquisition of JMP, SYSTRA has attained a critical size in the United Kingdom, and secured its position in the transport planning mass transit consultancy and engineering market."

SYSTRA’s Chief Executive Officer, Pierre VERZAT
"Through this acquisition, SYSTRA will now benefit from a global presence covering all areas of the UK and Ireland with 12 offices and new regional locations as well as additional local projects in Bristol, Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle and Reading."
