Bowman Consulting Acquires Omland Engineering Continues National Expansion Strategy into NJ/NY Market
October 9, 2014, Chantilly, VA — Bowman Consulting announced that it has acquired Omland Engineering Associates, a 40+ person engineering firm with offices across New Jersey. With the addition of Omland, Bowman continues to expand its national presence with over five hundred professionals located in more than thirty offices throughout thirteen states and the District of Columbia.
“Omland brings a long standing presence throughout the New Jersey and New York markets. This addition is a great opportunity for us to continue our expansion into one of the largest and most dynamic metropolitan areas in the country,” said Gary Bowman, President of Bowman Consulting. “Stan Omland has built a great reputation for his firm and we look forward to having Stan be an integral part of our continued growth and success.”
Omland Engineering, headquartered in Cedar Knolls, New Jersey, was founded in 1997 by Stanley Omland. Omland began with a book of select private and municipal clients, and over the years, has grown and diversified to provide multiple disciplines, including site/civil engineering, municipal/public works, surveying, landscape architecture, master and city planning, and traffic and transportation engineering.
“Partnering with a firm that has a similar client focus and culture of excellence was of paramount importance to me and our team, and I am confident in Gary’s leadership and the strength of his firm,” said Stanley Omland. “With the synergies Bowman and Omland share in services, philosophy, and approach, Gary and I both see this as a natural fit and are excited about the opportunities this will collectively bring to our organizations.”
Over the past three years, Bowman has advanced its national expansion strategy with acquisitions and cold starts in Phoenix, Denver, Pittsburgh, Austin, Chicago, Safford, AZ, Charleston, SC, Southern Florida, and now New Jersey. Omland Engineering will operate under its current brand through the remainder of the year after which it will transition to Bowman Consulting.
