Riverside Technology, inc. to maintain current Federal scientific support contracts

Riverside Technology, inc. has reached a merger agreement with RTI International, wherein RTI has acquired the Fort Collins based consulting division of Riverside. This division provides water resources management and engineering services to clients worldwide. The non-consultation portion of Riverside will continue to be based in Fort Collins, CO and serve its Federal customers including NOAA, USGS, US Fish and Wildlife, USDA, and others with scientific support services.

RTI is based in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, and has a staff of approximately 4,700 that provides research and technical services to governments and businesses in more than 75 countries. The acquisition will bring the specialized expertise and services of Riverside’s water resource engineers and RTI’s proven research and implementation capabilities together.

“We are excited to join an excellent and reputable organization that shares our mission-driven approach and core values,” said former Riverside CEO and new RTI Division Vice President Larry Brazil, Ph.D. “Together, our enhanced capacity will position us to expand our service offerings in the vital arena of water resources management in support of solving the world’s most challenging water, land and climate problems. This also presents an opportunity for the remaining Riverside team to grow the company in new directions.”

“Riverside will continue providing the support services our customers have come to expect from us as well as maintaining the highest levels of customer service,” said new Riverside CEO Brian Ashe. “We are very excited for the future direction of Riverside and the opportunities in front of us. We have an excellent team in place at Riverside and we will move ahead as a company focused on providing superior services to our Federal customer base.”
