TranSmart Technologies acquires Chicago-based EJM Engineering
In a move that will result in one of the largest women- and minority-owned engineering firms in the Chicago region, transportation engineering TranSmart Technologies has announced its acquisition of Chicago-based EJM Engineering, a company specialising in planning, design, construction engineering and program management of infrastructure projects.
TranSmart’s acquisition of EJM represents a synergistic integration of two highly successful women-owned companies, one founded on traditional transportation and civil engineering and one that focuses on the applications of innovative technology for improved and advanced transportation systems and infrastructure.
TranSmart, using intelligent transportation systems and active traffic management technologies, is supporting the Illinois Tollway to change the I-90 corridor between Rockford and Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport into a more efficient, state-of-the-art SMART Corridor. EJM provided structural, civil, electrical and traffic engineering services and played a critical role in maintaining traffic operations in downtown Chicago during construction of the Chicago Department of Transportation’s signature Wacker Drive project.
