Terracon Acquires Wang Engineering Inc. of Illinois

LOMBARD, IL — Terracon, an employee-owned firm with a history of providing engineering consulting services, announces it has acquired Wang Engineering Inc. (Wang) of Lombard, Illinois, which specializes in geotechnical engineering, construction inspection, and materials testing services.

Over the past 39 years, Wang has provided geotechnical services to a wide range of clients throughout the U.S. including state and federal government as well as the private sector. The company has extensive experience performing geotechnical services for the City of Chicago, the Illinois and Indiana Departments of Transportation, and on other public transportation projects including highways, tollways, and railroads.

A subsidiary company, Wang Testing Services, Inc., has been sold separately and was not purchased by Terracon as part of the acquisition. Wang Engineering and Terracon will continue to work with Wang Testing Services, Inc. as a teaming partner.

“Wang is a well-respected provider of geotechnical engineering services in Illinois and Indiana with an impressive track record,” said Gayle Packer, Terracon Chair, President, and CEO. “We look forward to the addition of Wang’s highly qualified team as we expand our services to transportation and infrastructure clients.”

Wang’s 25 employees will immediately become part of Terracon. The firm will continue to operate locally as Wang Engineering Inc., A Terracon Company. The new acquisition is supported by Terracon’s existing offices in Chicago, Glendale Heights, Downers Grove, and Hartford, Illinois, as well as offices throughout Indiana and nearby states.
