Montgomery Harza new name


The statements in Ringing the Changes, the overview section of NCE's Consultants File, that 'Montgomery Watson is changing hands . . .' and is 'being sold because [it] no longer fits with owners' plans' are incorrect and, perhaps, misunderstand our planned amalgamation with Harza.

First, Montgomery Watson is and will remain an international grouping with 100% worldwide ownership by its global staff.

Montgomery Watson Europe, to which the File 's comments specifically apply, is one of the three constituent regional companies of Montgomery Watson. No part is being sold. It is entirely wrong to link us to companies whose 'parent' is no longer interested in the global market and is selling them on.

The style of ownership will not change following our merger.

All parts of Montgomery Watson Harza (MWH as it will be known) remain focused on specialist water, energy and environmental engineering around the world. There is no conflict of interest about the type of organisation we should be or the service we provide to our clients.

Ron Cole, managing director, Montgomery Watson Europe, Terriers House, 201 Amersham Road, High Wycombe, Bucks HP13 5AJ
