Monday, January 15, 2018

Today Olsson Associates, a national engineering firm, has acquired McGoodwin Williams & Yates (MWY), a 30-person engineering firm in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Olsson announced its acquisition plans last month, and the deal was finalized and signed earlier today. Terms of the acquisition will not be released.

Founded in 1946, MWY specializes in municipal infrastructure design, specifically for water and wastewater projects. MWY is located at 302 East Millsap Road in Fayetteville.

"Today is a special milestone—Olsson Associates is adding some outstanding technical professionals in a state that is new to our office footprint, and MWY is gaining the support of a firm that can help provide opportunities for growth and development,” said Sterling Cramer, Olsson regional leader.

MWY is now “McGoodwin Williams & Yates, a division of Olsson Associates” for a six-month transition period. It will take on the Olsson Associates name on July 1, 2018.

MWY’s staff, including its principals, will remain with the company.
