Engineering Industry Consolidation

Quebec-based Englobe has announced an acquisition of Moncton-based Crandall Engineering.

Crandall was employee-owned and is an engineering firm specializing in municipal, water/wastewater, buildings and traffic engineering. Englobe calls itself one of Canada’s largest engineering firms and specializes in soils, materials and environmental engineering.

This continues the consolidation trend in the engineering sector, including across Atlantic Canada.
