Englobe Corporation, a Canadian specialty engineering and environmental services firm, announced the acquisition of MPE, a multidisciplinary consulting engineering firm specializing in municipal engineering, water resources, and building services.
Founded in 1983 and headquartered in Lethbridge, Alberta, MPE has 11 offices from British Columbia to Manitoba. Over the past years, MPE has participated in a diverse range of projects, including the construction of a Wastewater Treatment Facility for the Town of Vermillion, the upgrade of the Fish creek west sub-trunk sanitary capacity for the City of Calgary and the rehabilitation of the Cameron Lateral for the St. Mary River Irrigation district.
“We’re very pleased to welcome MPE’s team of experienced professionals into the Englobe family,” said Englobe’s co-president, Mike Cormier. “We’re particularly impressed with its industry-leading expertise in water resource engineering, which will be a great complement to our own strengths and services. We’re excited to collaborate with MPE to become a Canadian leader in our areas of practice.”
According to the company, the transaction significantly scales Englobe’s existing Western Canadian operations and serves as a platform for continued growth in the region and across Canada. Furthermore, MPE’s suite of services closely aligns with Englobe’s current offering, thus boosting the company’s resource capacity.
“This transaction represents the next step in our company’s evolution, and will help us achieve our growth objectives. Our team is excited about this new step, and particularly to join Englobe, whose solid values of caring for their communities and the environment closely align with our own,” said Gerald Veldman, president and CEO of MPE.
Following the successful close of this transaction, all 230 current MPE employees will join the extended Englobe family.
