MWH acquires Dutch environmental services provider

MWH has acquired the Syncera BV, a Dutch environmental services company specialising in water consultancy and environmental engineering.

Syncera, was established in 1983, and employs about 250, with offices in Delft, Arnhem and Amsterdam. It will change its name to MWH BV by 2008.

MWH President of the Europe Middle East and Asia regions said: "MWH intends to increase its market share in continental Europe, focusing initially on North West Europe. The Netherlands is a mature, developed market consistent with MWH's other major markets.

"The Dutch environmental sustainability market is emerging as a world leader and there is a need for significant investment in the Netherlands to accommodate the impacts of climate change. For us, the Netherlands is a key part of our growth strategy, and Syncera is a leading player in the Netherlands market."

"The Syncera company philosophy and those of MWH are similar in many ways", said Wim Drossaert, General Director of Syncera. "Both companies are owned by their own personnel and both are working on improving the quality of the environment they live in and have the desire to provide first-rate products and services.

"Syncera enriches MWH with its local 'colour', particularly in the areas of environmental thinking and local and regional knowledge," he said.

"MWH bring added value with their numerous examples of expertise in water, environment and energy projects, risk, asset and programme management and strategic consulting in areas such as change management and programme evaluation."
