The 100% acquisition of the 60-year-old Jacksonville-based engineering company expands Chen Moore and Associates’ professional engineering consulting services to now include the electrical discipline, adds the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to the Firm’s highway engineering project portfolio, and increases the Firm’s statewide team to more than 100 employees.

“Fred Wilson & Associates, Inc. really hit all the marks for us as a strategic acquisition,” said Peter Moore, President and CEO of Chen Moore and Associates. “With their long successful history, 25 dedicated staff members, northern Florida location, and notoriety for both transportation and electrical engineering work- we are very excited to weave their long history into ours as an investment in our growth.”

The acquisition of Fred Wilson & Associates, Inc. reflects Chen Moore and Associate’s commitment to two of its six key market sectors and the potential to expand others such as water resources, water and sewer, transportation, power, parks and recreation, and land development to the Jacksonville region. Offering a full range of professional engineering
consulting services, the Chen Moore and Associates team is highly regarded for facilitating statewide infrastructure improvements.
