Golder Associates Acquires NovaTec Consultants Inc.

Agreement advances Golder's water and wastewater treatment capabilities across Canada and internationally

VANCOUVER, Feb. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Golder Associates, a leader in independent consulting, design, and construction services, has acquired Vancouver-based NovaTec Consultants Inc. Founded in 1984, NovaTec is a specialist process engineering firm focused on industrial and municipal advanced water and wastewater treatment plant design, operations, process optimisation, and technology & process performance verification.

The merger presents expanded opportunities to deliver greater value to Mining and Oil & Gas clients, and capitalises on the reputation earned by the two companies in the Government and Infrastructure project streams. Integrating these two organisations creates a diverse technical portfolio available to our clients; a benefit as we collaborate to engineer positive change in communities around the world.

"NovaTec's reputation and experience really further our water and wastewater treatment service offering in Canada and provide all of us with broadened horizons—opportunities to become involved in new business streams and to explore new technical applications," explains Ateesh Roop, National Leader of Mergers & Acquisitions for Golder in Canada. "There is a lot of enthusiasm, on both sides, around this deal."

Troy Vassos, President of NovaTec, described the merger as a benefit to employees and clients, saying "NovaTec enhances Golder's existing water treatment process design capabilities. Integrating the two organisations' services creates new opporutnities for our people, and enables us to better assist clients as we work together to develop sustainable water reclamation and reuse solutions."

NovaTec will operate as part of the Mine Water Group within the Mining Division of Golder Associates' Greater Vancouver (Burnaby) office.
