A Passion for Traffic Engineering
Trans Associates was established by Mark Magalotti, P.E., in 1989 for the purpose of providing comprehensive transportation engineering services to the Southwestern Pennsylvania region. Mark’s vision was to create a niche firm that would serve the needs of public institutions, developers, municipalities and other public entities. Trans Associates initial service offering of data collection and analysis was quickly supplemented with parking consulting, traffic signal and system design, and highway design services.
Mark was passionate about traffic engineering and solving complex transportation issues. His passion was not lost on the firm’s client base. Over the years, Trans Associates’ experience and reputation grew. Offices were added in State College, PA and Columbus, OH.
Trans Associates’ clients recognize the benefit of retaining an engineering firm that can not only perform the traffic engineering studies, but also plan, design and implement the solutions. Our client-centered approach means that our engineering staff becomes intimate with the transportation concerns of our clients, and provide quality, value-added solutions.
In 2012 Mark Magalotti sold the firm to key employees who are engineering the future of Trans Associates: Robert Goetz, P.E., Cynthia Jampole, P.E., Regis Aul, P.E., Jim Prisk, P.E., and Mark Szewcow, P.E. The current ownership team plans to move the firm forward with the same principles of integrity and technical proficiency that has been a hallmark of Trans Associates’ success.
