SHERIDAN — Morrison-Maierle recently announced that it has acquired Vista West Engineering of Sheridan and Casper.
“We are very excited about the opportunity to become part of Morrison-Maierle,” Vista West Engineering principal Randy Bomar said. “Having worked with them previously, we know they are a quality firm with outstanding people. This will allow us the opportunity to provide additional services to our clients and expand our Wyoming capabilities.”
Based in Sheridan, Vista West Engineering began in 2006 when it acquired the civil engineering portion of TSP. As the working environment in Wyoming changed and Vista West was ready to grow, Bomar said the company added a second office in Casper in 2014. They have capabilities in airports, municipal infrastructure, pavement management, site engineering, highway and traffic engineering.
This acquisition is Morrison-Maierle’s second this year in Wyoming. In January, the company acquired longtime Cody firm, Holm, Blough and Company. With this move, Morrison-Maierle now has 35 employee-owners working in the state.
“At Morrison-Maierle, we strive to find companies of like-minded individuals,” said Bob Morrison, President and CEO. “Vista West’s direction, core values and approach to their work all are very similar to what we do here at Morrison-Maierle. In fact, we have partnered with Vista West on projects for the Wyoming Department of Transportation to great success. Going forward, we plan to expand on this and are very excited to become more ingrained in Wyoming as a whole.”
Along with Bomar, Vista West has 14 employees; eight professional engineers, two engineering interns, a computer-aided design technician, a CAD designer, two project coordinators and one office manager. Bomar will be the satellite office manager; Dan Allen will be the airports group office leader. Jeff Feck will serve as the development group office leader and Erik Miller has been assigned as the transportation group office leader.
Morrison-Maierle has offices in Montana, Wyoming, Arizona and Washington.
