Ramboll Acquires DEG Signal Ltd.
Ramboll, the engineering and design consultancy, has expanded its holdings by acquiring specialist signalling designers DEG Signal Ltd.
Ramboll employs 13,000 people in offices around the world; its British division has worked on HS2, Network Rail’s Digital Rail programme and Crossrail, and was one of the leading partners in the consortium which upgraded the rail signalling system in Denmark. The acquisition of DEG Signal Ltd. will increase the company’s capacity to provide multi-disciplinary support to its clients on all its projects in the rail industry.
DEG Signal Ltd. provides consultancy and design services for signalling systems on railways: mainline and metro, and have worked with TfL, Network Rail, Thales, Ansaldo, Amey and Siemens. They are currently working on the Thameslink Resilience Project, primarily on the Brighton Main Line.
Doug Green, DEG Signal Chief Executive, said:
“Having collaborated with Ramboll across a number of years, we couldn’t pick a better partner to join. Their expertise and resources will be a major asset for our team and we are glad to be able to offer our clients a broader suite of services to support them in their projects. We can’t wait to get started.”
Mathew Riley, Ramboll’s UK Managing Director, added:
“This also showcases Ramboll’s commitment to the rail sector and our intention to continue playing a major role in the development of modern rail systems both in the UK and overseas. From our work on HS2 in the UK to the implementation of ERTMS in Denmark, we are involved in some of the most exciting rail projects around.”
