February 16, 2015

BETHESDA, Md. - Clark Construction Group has formed a new entity, C3M Power Systems, LLC, to self-perform power and systems construction, reconstruction, and maintenance in the transportation market. The new company will be headquartered in Prince George's County, Md., and will compete for transportation projects across the country. C3M Power Systems will work on projects for Clark companies, as well as directly with transit agencies and for other civil contractors.

C3M Power Systems' areas of expertise include electrical, traction power, overhead catenary, and communications and signaling systems for heavy rail, light rail, streetcar, Class 1 freight rail, and bus transit systems. As a full-service provider of transportation system work, C3M will allow Clark to better serve clients in the transportation sector and enable the company to pursue new opportunities in the civil marketplace. Clark is currently the nation's 15th-largest mass transit and rail contractor, as ranked by Engineering News-Record.

C3M Power Systems' senior leadership has more than 100 combined years of industry experience. They are joined by support staff, and a crew of skilled electricians who have delivered some of the most technically-challenging light rail and mass transit projects in the region. “Our team has the resources and proven industry experience to serve as a trusted partner for transportation clients across the country,” said Mark Ketchel, C3M Senior Vice President.

"Clark is always searching for opportunities to diversify our portfolio, vertically integrate our products, and enhance our client offerings,” said Robert D. Moser, Jr., President and CEO of Clark Construction Group. “We formed C3M Power Systems to pursue rising opportunities within the transportation sector. The firm’s services complement our company’s existing civil capabilities, and will enable us to better serve clients in this market.”

C3M currently is working with Clark Civil on the WMATA Orange and Blue Line Rehabilitation project in Washington, D.C., and also is performing work on the Cincinnati Street Car project in Cincinnati, Ohio, and the West Virginia University Personal Rapid Transit Systems in Morgantown, W. Va.
