Supply Side: STV, Tealinc, TRAC IntermodalWritten by Marybeth Luczak, Executive Editor
STV has expanded its Austin, Tex., presence with a second downtown office. Also, Tealinc, Ltd., is now accepting applications for its 2022 scholarship program, and TRAC Intermodal has teamed with ZEBOX to help support startups in the supply chain and transportation/logistics spaces.
STV recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its second downtown Austin, Tex., office.
The engineering, architectural, planning and program, and construction management services firm has 50-plus offices throughout North America, including more than 10 in Texas, where it has worked on projects in the transit, highway, aviation, energy, military, corporate and water sectors. Those include the Houston Metropolitan Transit Authority’s New Starts light rail transit system and the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) light rail transit system. In September 2021, STV acquired CP&Y, which has served the Austin market for more than 20 years and has partnered with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) on each segment of the Capital Expressway improvement projects.
“Austin is one of the fastest growing regions in the country,” STV President and CEO Greg Kelly said. “This expansion emphasizes our commitment to help deliver the sustainable, resilient and equitable infrastructure needed to improve and connect this growing community for generations to come. We are excited to expand our Austin footprint and devote even more resources to help this area flourish.”
“I am so proud to see our company growing,” said STV’s local Austin leader J.J. Roohms, who is also President of CP&Y. “We have vast experience on water, highway and utility projects right here in Austin and all across the state of Texas, so we understand the fabric of the communities here. This expansion will allow us to elevate our transit resources in the market with an unparalleled national perspective.”
Tealinc, Ltd. will award two $1,000 scholarships in 2022. One scholarship will go to a high school senior and the other to an undergraduate student; each must be either accepted into or enrolled in a two-year technical school, two- or four-year college, or a trade school by April 30, 2022. Applications are due April 30, 2022. Scholarships will be paid directly to the selected candidate’s school to be used for tuition, books, and/or room and board. Applicants will be notified of their award on or before May 31, 2022.
Guidelines and the application can be found on the Tealinc website.
Based in Forsyth, Mont., Tealinc is a railcar owner and operating lessor, rolling stock broker, and transportation and management consultant. It has been offering scholarships since 2005.
