Member and Industry News,

TranSystems Corp., a national transportation consulting firm that provides engineering, architectural, planning and construction solutions, acquires Whitney Bailey Cox & Magnani, LLC (WBCM), an engineering consulting firm delivering projects to public and private clients throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and across the U.S.

Founded in 1977 and headquartered in Baltimore, MD, WBCM has grown to more than 225 employees and has nine offices across six states, including two in the Commonwealth of Virginia (Reston & Lexington). Since beginning services in Virginia just prior to the pandemic, WBCM has been able to establish a foothold in the western part of the state, working with localities and teaming on major projects like the I-81 DB widening in Staunton District and landing on multiple state L&D contracts. Business development during the transition and moving forward will continue to be led by Senior Vice President & Regional Transportation Director Jim Holls and Assistant Vice President Tom Marando.

“The WBCM and TranSystems combination is natural with similar focuses on innovative transportation and infrastructure solutions,” said TranSystems CEO Richard Morsches. “This merger will yield immediate and long-term benefits for both companies strengthening our presence in the Mid-Atlantic Region along with enhancing our talent and capabilities to be applied across the U.S.”

WBCM’s team will join the TranSystems national 1,500-person workforce. TranSystems is ranked #15 on the ENR Top Transportation firms list.

“We are thrilled about the opportunities that come with joining the TranSystems family,” said WBCM President Marco Legaluppi. “This acquisition brings together two highly respected firms with a shared commitment to delivering innovative solutions to our clients. Our combined resources and expertise will enable us to take on more significant and complex projects while expanding our reach to new markets. For our employees, this acquisition provides exciting opportunities for career growth and development, and it provides access to a wider range of services and expertise for our clients. We are confident that this merger will positively impact both our clients and employees, and we look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead.”

Sentinel Capital Partners continues to team with TranSystems to expand its presence in the infrastructure industry.
