Division to Operate Under the United E&C Brand and will Continue as an Independent Engineering and Construction Services Company Serving the Energy Generation and Delivery Markets

PISCATAWAY, NJ and MANHATTAN BEACH, CA (October 19, 2020) – United E&C, Inc. (“United”), a leading infrastructure engineering, procurement, construction and consulting company, formerly the Power Construction division of AECOM (NYSE: ACM), today announced its launch as an independent company and the closing of AECOM’s sale of United to affiliates of CriticalPoint Capital, LLC (“CriticalPoint Capital” or “CPC”).

“United continues our 115-year heritage of providing end-to-end engineering and construction services to the power industry,” said Scott Reeder, Chief Executive Officer of United. “In CriticalPoint Capital, we have found a partner with the industry knowledge and operational resources to support our vision.  We are excited to work with CPC to build upon our legacy of providing critical infrastructure and services to our clients with a focus on safety, quality and integrity.”

Brad Holtmeier, Partner at CPC stated, “United represents a compelling opportunity to invest in a tremendous engineering and construction platform with a long-standing track record and reputation for quality.  We have a deep appreciation for strong engineering and construction franchises and experience in partnering with management to reinforce those strengths and accelerate their growth as a standalone company.
