Canadian firm McIntosh Perry Consulting Engineers Ltd. has entered into an agreement to join Egis, a France-based consulting, construction and engineering company that will now expand into Canada.
The acquisition is also set to cover the subsidiary Beam, Longest and Neff, LLC (BLN) when the deal closes in early July. McIntosh Perry merged with BLN in 2021.
“This acquisition contributes to our strategic vision of expanding into a key region, North America,” announced Egis CEO Laurent Germain in a statement. “Their talented workforce and excellent client relationships will create a strong and stable base to build upon in North America and will place us among the top North American engineering firms. Together, we will be able to offer a wider scope of services to our clients and contribute to the most important green infrastructure and climate resilient projects on the continent.”
Egis has operations in some 120 countries and has some 16,000 employees. It is currently involved with the GO Rail Expansion program in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area, as well as the rehabilitation of the Louis-Hippolyte-La Fontaine tunnel in Montreal.
