AMEC acquires U.K.-based firm
AMEC plc, the London-headquartered international project management and services company, has expanded its global environmental services capability with the acquisition of United Kingdom-based Environmental Advice Centre (EAC) Ltd.
“The U.K. market for environmental services represents an important growth opportunity for AMEC, with increased public and private investment in high-level environmental consultancy, driven mainly by evolving legislation,” said AMEC executive director Carlos Riva.
“Environmental consulting also gives AMEC entry to customer projects at the earliest point in the total life-cycle of the asset.”
EAC specializes in ecological surveys and assessments, contaminated land remediation and air and water quality appraisals.
It employs 25 environmental professionals in offices in Mold and Richmond.
The deal was engineered by AMEC Earth & Environmental’s Mississauga, Ont.-based executive vice president, Jim Beechinor, who is also in charge of the company’s U.K. environmental operations.
AMEC said the acquisition gives the company a U.K. gateway through which to target its expertise in large environmental management programs, both with existing AMEC and EAC customers across the oil and gas, industrial, transport and government sectors as well as into new markets.
AMEC’s environmental services business operates from a network of 100 offices across the Americas as well as locations in Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Russia and Peru.
It provides extensive environmental services around the globe.
The environmental services business forms part of the Engineering and Technical Services business, AMEC’s largest area of activity.
