The engineering, design and consultancy company increased revenue by 28% in 2015, however, performance was challenged by tough market conditions. With the acquisition of ENVIRON, the Group has significantly strengthened its position in the environment market and Ramboll has been growing organically in most of its key markets, especially in the Nordic countries. Globally, 2,265 additional colleagues joined Ramboll, which now has more than 13,000 employees in 35 countries.
