TRC Becomes Major Tulsa Employer With Acquisition of Willbros Professional Services

TRC and Chamber of Commerce Open House Draws City Officials for Formal Welcome

TULSA, OK--(Marketwired - Jan 20, 2016) - TRC Companies, Inc. and the Tulsa Regional Chamber today hosted an open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony, to welcome the Willbros Professional Services staff to the TRC family and to introduce the newly expanded company to the greater Tulsa community. During the event, Tulsa Mayor Dewey F. Bartlett Jr., TRC leadership and local government officials discussed the impact of the acquisition for the Tulsa community and for the Company's clients.

TRC, a recognized leader in engineering, environmental consulting and construction-management services, acquired the professional services business segment of Willbros late last year. The new TRC business unit, "Pipeline Services," positions TRC as the leading provider of end-to-end solutions in both the power and oil & gas markets.

Speakers at the event included Dewey F. Bartlett Jr., Mayor of the City of Tulsa; Mike Neal, President and CEO of the Tulsa Regional Chamber; Chris Vincze, Chairman & CEO of TRC; Ed Wiegele, Senior Vice President and Pipeline Services Sector Director at TRC (formerly President of Willbros Professional Services); and Scott Pruitt, Oklahoma Attorney General.

"We couldn't be happier to be here in Tulsa today, welcoming our new colleagues and introducing TRC to the community," Vinzce said. "The merger of our organizations is transformational for both of our businesses. We are truly 'better together,' with expanded capabilities to serve the oil and gas market at a time when cleaner natural gas solutions are pivotal to our collective energy future. We are focused on providing immediate and long-term value to all of our clients and are committed to helping the Tulsa business community continue to grow."

"Tulsa is home to several major industries, including oil and gas, and the region has the greatest growth and employment concentration in the country," Neal said. "We are confident TRC will be a valuable partner as we continue to expand our workforce and boost economic development for years to come."
