Morrison-Maierle is pleased to announce that it has acquired Billings firm Murtagh Municipal Engineering (MME).
Firm principal, Pat Murtagh worked for Morrison-Maierle from 1996-1998 in the company’s Billings office. “It’s great to be back,” he said.
MME started in 1999 as Montana Engineering and Administration (ME&A) and worked on water, wastewater, planning, and funding projects primarily in eastern Montana. ME&A joined with Great West in 2007 and then became MME in 2010. Their focus has been on smaller communities and initially helping them with funding sources and grant writing in order to improve their infrastructure systems. This is one of the many things that’s set them apart from other firms.
“At MME, we worked with small towns. Now as Morrison-Maierle, we have the ability to bring our former and current clients so many more resources and capabilities,” said Murtagh.
Along with Murtagh, four former MME employees will also be working at Morrison-Maierle. Ralph Gurney, P.E.; Laura Gundlach, E.I.; Carlina Quintero, E.I.; and Leo Kapp, RPR have moved into Morrison-Maierle’s Billings office and are affiliated with the company’s water/wastewater market group.
“As a former Morrison-Maierle employee, Pat has long shared our core values and knows these are key to the way we approach our work. When we navigate through each project with integrity, respect, commitment, and excellence, the results end up with winning solutions. We’re excited to work hand-in-hand with this group of talented individuals,” said Bob Morrison, President and CEO of Morrison-Maierle.
