AMEC (UK), an international project management and services company, has expanded its environmental services capabilities in Eastern Europe with the acquisition AGRARO Consult, based in Bucharest, Romania.
AGRARO provides environmental assessment, investigation, planning, engineering and monitoring services for clients in the public and private sectors. It has a strong roster of scientists and engineers and has particular experience in the mining and oil and gas sectors.
The acquisition will enhance AMEC`s position in the Romanian and Eastern European environmental market. AGRARO will join AMEC`s Earth and Environmental business in mainland Europe, which operates from offices in Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin, Kaiserslautern, Milan, Rotterdam and Seville.
"The combination of AGRARO`s excellent credentials in Romania with AMEC`s growing presence across Europe is a great match for both parties," said Tim Conley, Vice President in charge of AMEC`s Earth & Environmental business in Europe.
"This acquisition fits our strategy of expanding our European capability to serve our multinational clients with in-country
staff who are familiar with local and European standards."
