Thornton Tomasetti agrees to acquire MMI Engineering (“MMI”), the technical consulting specialist focused on the risk management of man-made and natural hazards across the oil and gas, nuclear, utilities and infrastructure sectors.

Commenting on the transaction, Phillip Thompson, Thornton Tomasetti’s European Regional Leader, said;

“MMI is a first-class business that brings with it a reputation for scientific rigour and engineering excellence. Their blue-chip customer base is testament to the work they undertake in helping some of the world’s leading companies and public bodies manage both man-made and natural hazards across a range of sectors. Coming hot on the heels of last month’s investment in MFD, this transaction further underlines our commitment to growing our presence in Europe and providing our clients with a full range of risk management and technical security services.”

Commenting on the transaction, Najib Abboud, Thornton Tomasetti’s Weidlinger Applied Science Practice Leader, said;

“The addition of MMI to the Thornton Tomasetti team will propel us to a new magnitude in the U.K., Australasia and the Far East while providing MMI with a broader platform from which to grow. Together, we will continue to provide best-in-class analysis, simulation and engineering design services, as well as multidisciplinary solutions to current and future challenges presented by man-made and natural hazards.”
