Rhea Acquires RBS, Furthering its Experience in Airport Design and Development

Acquisition Expands Rhea’s Skill Set and Provides RBS Clients With Additional Services 

Rhea Engineers & Consultants, Inc., a full service engineering and consulting firm – with offices in Pennsylvania, Virginia, and North Carolina – today announced that it has recently acquired RBS of Coraopolis, PA to further expand its airport design and development services.

“We already had been doing some airport work at Rhea, ” said Marcy Johnson, Rhea president and co-founder. “Together, RBS and Rhea will be able to offer a full slate of consulting services from investigation through design and construction management.  We look forward to building our airport business with RBS and also look forward to working with them to expand into new markets and ventures.”

RBS is a consulting engineering firm that has honed its airport design expertise for the last 17 years. The firm – which also consults with municipalities and private companies – has grown through its emphasis on cost effective and personalized service.

“Rhea’s full slate of in-house services will allow us to expand our offerings to clients, ” said Mark Scappe, Vice President of RBS. “And because Rhea is a woman-owned business, we will now be able to move into new areas of opportunity.”

Johnson concludes, “Rhea and RBS have similar business philosophies, so the acquisition is a good fit for both sides.  We have already integrated some of our Rhea team with RBS to learn the intricacies of their business model.  We think the addition of the RBS talent will further fuel Rhea’s growth and expansion.”

RBS will maintain offices in Coraopolis and their employees will join Rhea’s existing team.
