Alberici Acquires CAS Construction
January 30, 2012
ST. LOUIS - Alberici Corporation, a leading builder of water treatment plants in North America, has acquired CAS Construction, LLC, a firm that specializes in constructing water treatment facilities using the design-build method.
CAS, based in Topeka, Kansas, has built facilities throughout the central western region, including facilities in Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, and Colorado.
"The acquisition of CAS provides Alberici with additional design-build capabilities and the ability to reach new customers and markets," said Alberici Executive Vice President Mike Burke.
Alberici and CAS began working together three years ago, when they teamed with engineering firm Burns & McDonnell to perform the design-build construction of an aquifer recharge system for the City of Wichita, Kansas. That $73-million project, completed last year, recently won a Design-Build Institute of America - Mid America Region award and an Associated General Contractors of Kansas award in the Design Build category.
"CAS and Alberici build a bond of trust and shared ethics, and we are extremely pleased to see that relationship evolve to the next level through the acquisition of CAS by Alberici," said Mike Hafling, P.E., the president of CAS.
Hafling and other senior managers will remain with the company, which will be renamed CAS Constructors, LLC. CAS was founded in 1985 by Charles A. Stryker of Topeka, who managed the business until his death in 2006.
Alberici Corporation is a major North American construction firm serving the energy, building, healthcare, heavy industrial, manufacturing, water, and automotive industries. Alberici had revenue of more than $1 billion in 2011, and the company was ranked the 58th largest contractor in the United States by the Engineering News-Record. Please visit www.alberici.com.
