“Delcan has long prided itself on working with the most talented customers and colleagues in the industry. We are passionate about delivering innovative work and believe that this acquisition will allow us to accomplish these worthy goals on an even greater scale,” said Jim Kerr, Delcan chairman and CEO. “I look forward to working with Parsons to ensure that our customers continue to receive the best service possible.”
