PASADENA, CALIF. — Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. has announced the acquisition of Jordan, Jones and Goulding Inc. (JJG). Jacobs said JJG significantly expands its position in the North American water and wastewater market, and broadens the company’s strong position in the global aviation, transit and transportation infrastructure markets.

Officials said the addition of JJG to Jacobs gives both companies the ability to provide comprehensive water solutions for clients — from assessments, planning and design of new systems, to the expansion and upgrade of existing systems.

In making the announcement, JJG President and CEO Don Allen stated, “We expect our employees and clients to benefit greatly from us joining Jacobs. Combining our capabilities with a company that shares our values allows our employees to continue to grow, and it provides a larger platform to better serve our clients."

Jacobs President and CEO Craig Martin said that JJG has a very talented team and its expertise in water infrastructure is not only a great complement to Jacobs strengths, but also positions the company for growth.

“Like many other challenges resulting from the aging infrastructure worldwide, water and wastewater is a critical concern,” said Martin. “This acquisition boosts our global capabilities to support public and private clients with the water solutions they urgently need.”
