The Christman Company Acquires Medco Construction



The Christman Company, a national construction management and real estate development firm based in Lansing, Michigan, and with an office in Knoxville, Tennessee, has acquired MEDCO Construction in Texas. The acquisition allows Christman, which also has an office in Grapevine, Texas, to expand its construction services and sets the stage for growth in Texas and surrounding areas.

MEDCO was the construction arm of Baylor Scott & White Health, the largest not-for-profit healthcare system in Texas. It had previously operated as an in-house construction partner for the system for more than 55 years. The unique collaboration resulted in some of the most innovative medical centers in the system and the state of Texas.

With this acquisition, the former MEDCO staff joins forces with Christman, combining national level expertise with long-standing local relationships. With more than $1 billion in annual revenue, Christman was seeking a strategic partnership in the region and together with Baylor Scott & White Health, determined this would be a good fit for both organizations.
