LOWELL, Mass. - March 22, 2017 - TRC Companies, Inc. today announced it has been recognized with two 2016 Business Achievement Awards from the Environmental Business Journal, in the categories of Business Achievement and Project Merit. The awards recognized TRC’s significant overall growth in 2016, as well as its exceptional permitting work on the Panda Hummel Station project — one of the largest coal-to-natural gas power conversion projects in the U.S.  

“TRC is proud to be recognized by the Environmental Business Journal as a leader in the industry,” said Chris Vincze, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “As we continue to grow, we remain committed to our vision of making the world a better place to live, and every day we work with our clients to complete projects that forward this shared core value.”  

In the category of Business Achievement among large firms, TRC earned a silver award for its significant overall growth in fiscal year 2016, with milestones including:
