At the opening of its new, expanded office in Shenzhen, PR China, Black & Veatch announced that it is planning to double the size of its operations in the city within the next two years to provide greater capabilities to serve its clients who provide water to millions of people in China.
“By the end of 2011, we plan to significantly increase the number of professionals in our Shenzhen office,” said Alan Man, Vice President and Managing Director of Black & Veatch’s North Asia Pacific water business. “This important investment will ensure that we enhance our water service offerings locally, in Hong Kong and globally.”
Black & Veatch has been working in PR China since 1979. In addition to its Shenzhen office, the company has a large presence in Beijing, as well as four project offices around PR China. The company’s projects are helping municipal utility companies to improve water supplies and wastewater management for millions of people.
“The Black & Veatch Shenzhen office was first established to support our water business in Hong Kong,” said TAN Seng Chai, Vice President and Managing Director for Asia Pacific water business operations. “We have now built up a baseload of work from clients in Shenzhen and will also bring global projects for our Shenzhen professionals to work on.”
