AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, has agreed to buy MACTEC, a leading engineering and environmental services company, for US$280 million.
The merger will create a combined E&E business to be headquartered in Alpharetta, Ga.
Alpharetta-based MACTEC has some 2,600 employees and 70 offices, the majority of which are in the Eastern U.S. It provides a similar wide range of services to AMEC's existing Earth & Environmental (E&E) business, including environmental planning, assessment and remediation, infrastructure engineering, water resources and construction support services.
MACTEC has a high quality, long term, public and private sector client base and provides a broad range of environment and infrastructure services to the energy, commercial/industrial, transportation/infrastructure and federal sectors. In North America, E&E has a strong presence in the Western U.S. and in Canada, so the combination allows AMEC greater access to new clients and regions and MACTEC a better international platform for growth, according to a press release.
