Westwood Acquires Texas-Based Peloton Land Solutions
Westwood, a national multi-discipline engineering firm, announced its acquisition of Texas-based Peloton Land Solutions (Peloton).
The Peloton acquisition supports Westwood's long-term strategy to expand its existing markets and services. Peloton has approximately 200 team members between five offices in Fort Worth, Texas; Frisco, Texas; Austin, Texas; Dallas, Texas; and Las Vegas, Nevada.
"Their people are top of the industry and complement Westwood's strong team," says Westwood's Chief Operations Officer, Bryan P. Powell, PE. "We look forward to the expansion of Westwood and the professional service capabilities we can offer clients.”
Peloton provides engineering, surveying, landscape architecture, hydraulics, hydrology, and environmental solutions for public infrastructure, private development, and energy projects. Peloton has received several awards for Best Firms to Work For, Hot Firms, and local top workplace awards.
Peloton's President Richard Payne, PE, reflects on the organization’s focus: “We are proud of our team’s strong technical background, diverse skillset, and years of experience at all levels. The high-quality work we have done in Texas and Nevada over the last 13 years is proof of that.”
Payne continues, “We believe that joining Westwood will give our people many more opportunities to grow and advance their careers. Being able to provide our team with those opportunities is what we value most.”
Westwood's Vice President, Randall P. Pogue, PE, oversees strategy and operations for the firm's Land Division South Region. When the acquisition opportunity presented itself, Pogue felt it was a perfect complement to our existing teams here in the South. He says, "The expertise combined by both companies will provide high-quality service to our clients and advanced opportunities for our teams.”
Peloton will operate as Peloton Land Solutions, a Westwood company for a period of time and continue to serve clients from their current locations.
