Wilbros Professional Services becomes the fourth operating segment in the TRC portfolio and will be called “Pipeline Services.”

“Willbros Professional Services is a transformational acquisition for TRC, continuing our profitable growth strategy of investing in complementary businesses with strong market fundamentals,” said TRC Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Christopher P. Vincze. “We anticipate a rapid and smooth integration. Our sales development teams already have begun working on new project opportunities, and clients are applauding the introduction of our new platform.

“The addition of Pipeline Services as the fourth operating segment in our portfolio positions TRC as the leading provider of end-to-end solutions in both the Power and Oil & Gas markets,” Vincze said. “We believe the combination of our two businesses will provide immediate and long-term value to our clients. We welcome Willbros Professional Services to our team.”
