The company has been renamed Jacobs, Zamel and Turbag Consulting Engineers (Jacobs Zate). The combination of Zate with Jacobs' existing operations in Saudi Arabia will result in a total staff of more than 500 people providing engineering and construction management services.

"This merger combines the Zate team's long track record of project excellence and Jacobs' proven resources and work process to deliver a new level of high value, full project services to our existing Saudi Arabian clients and to expand our service offering to all industrial clients in the Kingdom," said Mohammed H.
