AECOM planning to expand it’s presence in Africa
AECOM Technology Corporation, a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for public and private clients in more than 130 countries around the world, announced today that South Africa-based BKS has agreed to join the company.
With approximately 900 employees, BKS is a multidisciplinary consulting engineering and management firm with headquarters in South Africa and operations across Africa.
Established in 1965, the company provides engineering and consulting services for public- and private-sector clients in the areas of buildings, stadia, transportation, water and sanitation, mining and energy.
As a result of the transaction, AECOM will own 80% of BKS, while the existing investor in BKS will hold a 20% interest.
The parties expect that BKS will continue to hold a level 2 contributor status in terms of South Africa’s Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment codes.
