AECOM is a global provider of professional technical and management support services to a broad range of markets, including transportation, facilities, environmental, energy, water and government.
More than 20 years ago, our founder, Richard G. Newman, and a handful of Ashland Inc. employees shared a dream of creating an industry-leading firm dedicated to making the world a better place.
On April 6, 1990, AECOM evolved to become an independent firm formed by the merger of five Ashland entities. While our official founding was in 1990, some of our predecessor firms had distinguished histories dating back to the early 1900s.
Since then, more than 40 companies have joined AECOM, and in 2007, we became a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: ACM).
With approximately 45,000 employees around the world, AECOM is a leader in all of the key markets that it serves. AECOM provides a blend of global reach, local knowledge, innovation and technical excellence in delivering solutions that create, enhance and sustain the world’s built, natural, and social environments. A Fortune 500 company, AECOM serves clients in more than 150 countries and had revenue of $8.1 billion during the 12 months ended Dec. 31, 2013.
