Ramboll Acquires Putz & Partner
While Ramboll engineers work on the Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link between Denmark and Germany, Ramboll’s consulting division takes the fast lane to strengthen ties to Europe’s largest economy.
With immediate effect, Putz & Partner becomes the newest member of Ramboll Management Consulting, after executives on both sides of the table agreed to join forces. This brings another 100 people to the disposition of Ramboll’s growing client base in Northern Europe. One of the executives putting pen to paper is Thomas Kveiborg, Executive Director at Ramboll Management Consulting. He says:
“This acquisition meets our strategic ambitions to strengthen our home markets especially outside Denmark, to gain a strong foothold in private sector consulting and to expand our service portfolio. Putz & Partner has been a primary target for us, as it is a solid and well-managed company. And like us, they are partly foundation-owned with a long-term perspective on doing business, and share as well our sustainable approach to society.”
Putz & Partner CEO, Volker Rothenpieler commented:
“An important prerequisite for our decision to join was our confidence that Ramboll shares our values and principles about customer-focused quality and sustainability. We will maintain our strength with highly experienced consultants, but at the same time discard our limits.”
Ramboll’s second in 2014. Only a week ago, the engineering and consultancy group acquired a part of Pöyry, adding 435 employees to the Finnish operation. This brings Ramboll to more than 10,500 employees globally.
