KAI has acquired woman-owned Fratto Engineering, Inc., based in Arlington, Texas. Founded in 1997, Fratto Engineering specializes in mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering and has more than 40 clients that include higher education institutions, hospital systems and healthcare centers, local municipalities, architectural firms, electrical contractors, general contractors, and other institutions. The acquisition will give Fratto customers the unique advantage of having design and construction professionals in the same office to provide input and advice on project solutions.
Under the acquisition agreement, Fratto Engineering’s staff will complete its current contractual commitments to its clients, with all new opportunities moving forward as KAI Engineering, LLC. Fratto Engineering’s 12 employees will remain in the Arlington office, accompanied by a few engineers transferred from KAI’s Dallas, Texas, office. Fratto Engineering president Debbie Fratto and Fratto Engineering principal Mark Fratto, P.E., will stay on in senior level roles in the Arlington office.
