February 2012 – TEC Inc. Co-Brands Under Cardno Name
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CO-BRANDS UNDER CARDNO NAME
The directors of TEC Inc., an environmental engineering firm providing environmental management, asset management, and infrastructure management services to government and commercial clients worldwide announced today that the name of the firm has been changed to Cardno TEC, Inc. (Cardno TEC). The name change reflects Cardno TEC’s October 2011 merger with Cardno Limited (Cardno), a global provider of physical, social, and economic infrastructure services. Cardno is based in Brisbane, Australia with U.S. headquarters in Portland, Oregon and is a publicly-traded company listed on the Australian Securities Exchange. Cardno employs more than 6,200 staff in 250 offices worldwide; 4,000 staff report to business headquarters in the United States. In 2011, the Engineering News-Record listed Cardno as #6 in the Top 10 Environmental Sciences Firms, #36 in the Top 200 Environmental Firms, #34 in the Top 500 Design Firms, and #35 in the Top 200 International Design Firms.
Cardno TEC was established in 1990 in Charlottesville, Virginia, and had grown to a company of 380 people in 16 offices in the U.S. and Europe at the time of its merger with Cardno. Although Cardno TEC has already conducted projects in over 50 countries, the firm’s directors believe that the merger will bring not just an expanded range of services, but a greater ability to work throughout the world, both for the U.S. government and for the multinational funding organizations that have become a growing source of Cardno TEC’s infrastructure management work.
Cardno TEC has expanded and strengthened its corporate Board of Directors with three appointees who have served the nation at the highest level: Lieutenant General Robert ‘Van’ Van Antwerp, U.S. Army retired, Major General Daniel Dick, U.S. Air Force retired, and Rear Admiral Robert Phillips, U.S. Navy retired. These individuals will serve to guide Cardno TEC’s decisions as they continue their valued relationships with government clients.
