Plano-Based Westwood Acquires California’s O’Dell Engineering

The acquisition is the first in California for Westwood Professional Services, which specializes in wind energy, solar energy, energy storage, power delivery, EV infrastructure, and more.

Plano-based design and consulting firm Westwood Professional Services has acquired Northern California-based design and consulting firm O’Dell Engineering.

Founded in 1972, Westwood is a full-service, professional engineering firm specializing in wind energy, solar energy, energy storage, power delivery, EV infrastructure, commercial, institutional, residential, and public infrastructure projects.

Westwood said the acquisition supports its strategy to expand into new regions and grow its existing markets and services. O’Dell is Westwood’s first investment in California and brings four new offices in Modesto, Pleasanton, Fresno, and Merced.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“O’Dell’s culture and people are a strong complement to Westwood’s team,” Westwood CEO Bryan Powell said in a statement. “The acquisition expands our geographic reach and the professional services we provide, advancing the capabilities we offer our clients. We look forward to the benefit that this partnership will bring to our clients and employees.”

O’Dell will operate as O’Dell Engineering, a Westwood company, for a period of time and continue to serve clients from their current locations.

“We’re excited to partner with the Westwood team and to have expanded capabilities for our clients. This partnership allows us to offer more services to our existing client base and more opportunities for our employees,” O’Dell President Dylan Crawford said in a statement.
