Hatch has announced that it is welcoming LTK – a transportation engineering consulting firm that specializes in transit, transit vehicles, and transit systems – into its global network as part of Hatch’s infrastructure team.
This new partnership will provide a solid foundation to position Hatch as a leading transportation solutions provider in North America and around the globe.
LTK brings to the integration a strong focus on passenger rail while providing highly specialized technical and management expertise to meet vehicle and systems engineering challenges, with a substantial footprint in the United States as well as Canada, Australia, and China. Founded in 1921, LTK has offices in 23 locations around the world and a staff of 500 that includes more than 350 engineers and other professionals with expertise in all areas of rail and transit.
Hatch brings its global multi-disciplinary staff with broad design and construction expertise in rail, transit, and port infrastructure, from freight and passenger rail to corridors and terminals as well as tunnels, bridges, and signaling systems. With over six decades of business and technical experience in the mining, energy, and infrastructure sectors, Hatch draws upon 9,000 staff with experience in over 150 countries.
By joining forces, the companies are expected to be a premier service provider for clients and communities in the transportation business.
“LTK’s focus on rail and rail systems combined with Hatch’s integrated, multi-disciplinary transportation expertise will provide our clients with comprehensive options across the entire supply chain and lifecycle of their operations,” said John Bianchini, chairman and CEO of Hatch. “The integration of Hatch and LTK allows us to broaden our US capabilities and to deliver transformational solutions to clients globally.”
“By joining forces with Hatch, we can achieve LTK’s long-term goals and together become a dominant provider of global transit solutions,” said Dominic Di Brito, CEO of LTK. “Our clients know that we’ll be serving them with the same great team while offering expanded services and resources to solve more of their toughest challenges.”
