Always at the Height of Time
The founders of CDM, Thomas Camp, Herman Dresser and Jack McKee dedicated their knowledge in the post-war years to promote public health protection and the development of a sustainable infrastructure. In the 1950s, when the automobile trade expanded and the traffic infrastructure developed explosively, the road construction engineer Wilbur Smith founded the company of the same name. In the following decades, both companies grew into globally operating companies through a combination of organic growth and acquisitions. In 2011, CDM and Wilbur Smith Associates merged to form CDM Smith. With around 5,000 employees, we are one of the leading companies in our industry today.
