Salas O’Brien announced today that SIA Solutions has joined the company, adding a nationwide team focused on federal projects to Salas O’Brien and creating a combined firm of 50 offices, more than 1,250 team members, and 320 registered professionals.
The SIA team strategically enhances Salas O’Brien’s growing federal and Department of Defense practice, enabling our combined firm to deliver more value on mission-critical projects through engineering as well as program management, infrastructure asset management, energy, robotics/emerging technology applications, and environmental & radiological services.
As the next step in Salas O’Brien’s strategy to be local everywhere, with international resources, the SIA team will continue to be managed by its current leadership team and will adopt the Salas O’Brien name after a transition period.
“Our federal practice has grown tremendously in the past year, and as we welcome SIA onto the Salas O’Brien team, I believe our collaboration will enable us to do more together than we ever thought possible,” said Darin Anderson, Salas O’Brien chairman and CEO. “Add to that our similar leadership style, team culture, and entrepreneurial hunger, and you have two firms that make an unstoppable combination.”
Salas O’Brien continues to grow as part of an ambitious plan to create the most respected engineering firm in the world as measured by our clients and team members.
“This merger is a great opportunity for SIA to better serve our clients’ diverse needs as we expand our technical capabilities and geographic coverage,” said Srini Neralla, CEO of SIA. “Our conversations with Darin and the entire Salas O’Brien team have made one fact abundantly clear: joining forces with Salas O’Brien makes everyone stronger. As we enhance and learn from each other and grow to become one firm, our future is incredibly bright.”
“Our team sees this as a tremendous benefit to our clients and a great opportunity for us to grow and diversify our service offering as part of Salas O’Brien,” added Harry Kleiser, President of SIA. “Our clients will continue to work with the same team they have known for years, making this merger a seamless transition.”
