Pharma and life sciences engineering experts, US-based Javan Engineering, has been completely integrated into CHA Consulting to further its life science growth
CHA Consulting, an innovative, full-service engineering, design, consulting, and program/construction management firm, has announced Javan Engineering is now fully integrated and has rebranded as CHA.
With expertise in project and programme management; process & MEP engineering; asset management; and predictive maintenance and reliability, the full integration of Javan further strengthens CHA's expanding advanced manufacturing, asset management, and industrial facilities teams and further supports CHA's strategy for growth in the life sciences/pharmaceuticals and specialty chemicals markets.
Based in the greater Philadelphia area, Javan was acquired by CHA in April 2023. Javan has an extensive portfolio of project work addressing complex, specialised manufacturing challenges and added nearly 200 employees to CHA, including experienced engineers, project managers, specialised process engineering talent, and asset management technical professionals.
"With the reshoring of domestic manufacturing and continued growth in pharma and life sciences facilities, the integration of our talented Javan colleagues has strengthened our advanced manufacturing and asset management teams and will continue to benefit our combined clients," said Jim Stephenson, CEO of CHA. "This rebrand further strengthens our presence in advanced manufacturing, allowing us to offer exceptional services and diverse resources with a united team comprised of some of the most skilled and knowledgeable technical professionals."
"Since joining CHA in April, we've created a collaborative team by building on each other's strengths and working together to provide expanded service offering to the clients of both firms," said Tim Javan, former President of Javan Engineering. "Our clients and staff recognize there are great synergies on the horizon and have already appreciated the expertise and value the combined entity can bring to each project."
The acquisition of Javan Engineering brought CHA's staff count to over 1,700 in 50 offices from Canada to Florida to the Midwest.
