TranSystems merges with Lichtenstein Consulting Engineers



TranSystems Corp. recently merged with Lichtenstein Consulting Engineers, an engineering firm founded in 1963 that specializes in bridge design. The combined firm has 45 U.S. offices and employs more than 1,300 people.

TranSystems provides architecture, engineering, planning and other consulting services to the transportation industry, including freight and passenger railroads. Lichtenstein provides engineering services for bridge, highway and transit-rail projects, including track alignments and realignments, station and platform modifications, and catenary towers.

“Our markets and services are remarkably complementary,” said Lichtenstein principal Charles Minervino in a prepared statement. “Together, our firms can provide expanded integrated services to the transportation community while maintaining both firms personal commitment to exceptional client relationships.”

The merger is TranSystems’ second in two months. In May, the company merged with supply-chain technology and software provider ESYNC. As part of that transaction, ESYNC principals John Sidell and Jim McNerney assumed leadership positions with TransSystems.
