XLCS Partners, Inc., a leading middle market investment bank, is pleased to announce it served as advisor to Trilon Group, a family of infrastructure consulting businesses backed by Alpine Investors, on its strategic growth partnership with Fehr Graham.

Founded in 1973, Fehr Graham is an Illinois-based leading provider of engineering and environmental consulting services to public and private entities throughout the Midwest. The partnership gives Fehr Graham additional capital and resources to expand its services and better serve clients.

Fehr Graham selected Trilon Group, which is backed by people-driven equity firm Alpine Investors, because of the company’s vision to build the next Top 20 design firm in North America. Trilon is doing that by bringing together the nation’s best infrastructure consulting firms like Fehr Graham. Trilon will support Fehr Graham to accelerate the growth and careers of its employees with additional investment in talent, technology, and targeted mergers and acquisitions.

Within Trilon, Fehr Graham will play a critical role in expanding the capabilities and reach of Trilon Midwest, which focuses on environmental, transportation, water, and community infrastructure projects.

In January 2022, XLCS represented Trilon Group in its first platform, Waggoner Engineering.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Fehr Graham and complete another transaction with Anthony Contaldo and the XLCS team,” shared Patrick Eble of Alpine Investors. “Anthony and team are not only a pleasure to work with but have also been critical to the successes of both Trilon Group and Alpine Investors. We highly value people at our organization and Anthony rises to the top of the list of the highest quality individuals we’ve interacted with in this industry. We look forward to the continued partnership.”

The transaction was completed on May 15, 2023, and was led by Anthony Contaldo, Partner of XLCS.
