[02/01/2012] Leading international consulting engineering firm Hilson Moran Partnership Ltd, has been acquired by its management team. Created in 1977 the company was privately owned until 2002 when it was acquired by Altran UK Ltd, a subsidiary of Altran Technologies S.A. headquartered in Paris. Since then Hilson Moran has developed the scope of services it provides, its geographical areas of operation and has continued to provide high quality, sustainable buildings whilst striving at all times to provide the best possible service to its clients.
The performance of Hilson Moran was recognised last year when it was awarded the Medium Consultant of the Year award by the NCE/ACE. The company was ranked 18th in the Building Magazine’s Top 100 Engineers survey and was 15th in the Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies schedule by the same magazine.
Managing Director Chris Plummer, who led the MBO said “We are delighted with the progress the company has been making in a difficult market and to have had the opportunity to re-acquire the business. Returning to private ownership will enable us to continue to develop the business in the direction that we choose, focusing on the needs of our clients, our employees and the technological challenges of this environmentally progressive age”.
