Pittsburgh — Michael Baker International, a global provider of engineering and consulting services, will further enhance its West Coast operations with the acquisition of Pacific Municipal Consultants (PMC). Offering planning, environmental and municipal services, PMC has award-winning expertise in environmental services and customized development projects, and is on the leading edge of climate change and sustainability planning. The firm has a diverse client base, 140 employees and seven offices in key California markets.

Headquartered in Rancho Cordova, Calif., PMC is a privately owned company established in 1995. The firm delivers a wide range of capabilities to diverse and highly regarded public and municipal sector clients, including technical staffing for municipalities and public-oriented organizations.

“PMC brings a talented team of individuals to our organization in a region that is extremely important to Michael Baker International," said Tom Campbell, chairman of Michael Baker International. "PMC has an established reputation as a creative, client-focused industry leader and will be a major complement to our growing practice in environmental services."

“Joining Michael Baker International is a major strategic opportunity for PMC,” said Phil Carter, president and founder of PMC. “Not only can we bring our expertise to Michael Baker International’s client base, we can now expand our offerings to our current clientele. This also allows us to compete for large, high profile, complex engagements with greater project diversity.”

“As Michael Baker International celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, we continue to evaluate opportunities that expand our range of capabilities and extend our geographic reach,” said Kurt Bergman, CEO of Michael Baker International. “PMC is an exceptional company with a proud legacy and we look forward to building a strong future together.”

Michael Baker International will integrate PMC into its Western Region operations, and Phil Carter will play a key role in the combined company. PMC offices are located in Rancho Cordova, Chico, Oakland, Monterey, San Diego, San Luis Obispo and Long Beach.
