The consulting engineering firm opens its second Ontario office in less than a year
MONT-SAINT-HILAIRE, QC, Sept. 11, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - BBA, a consulting engineering firm, announced today the opening of an expertise centre in Toronto. This marks the opening of a second location in Ontario in less than a year, as BBA inaugurated an office in the mining town of Timmins last fall.
This newest location is in line with the geographic diversification strategy of the Québec-based consulting engineering firm, which is currently expanding. "With increased mining activities in Ontario and the required investments in the province's energy infrastructure, we felt that the time was right to open an office in Toronto," explained Steeve Fiset, President and CEO at BBA. "Our Toronto expertise centre will bring us closer to our Ontario clients in order to offer them local services and build long-term relationships."
"The Toronto office complements the Timmins one and will allow us to increase our participation in our existing clients' projects while serving new clients," explained Yves Dessureault, Director, Toronto Expertise Centre. "Companies in the GTA appreciate the opportunity to work closely with a firm that can bring innovative and value-added solutions to the table. We need to be on the ground in order to better meet their needs."
Thanks to its advanced expertise in the heavy industry sector, particularly in the fields of energy, mining and metals, and oil, gas and chemicals, BBA enjoys an enviable reputation across Canada and has numerous clients outside Québec.
BBA currently employs more than 850 employees in eight locations throughout Canada.
For over 30 years, BBA has been offering a wide range of consulting engineering and project management services, from project definition to commissioning. The firm's expertise is recognized in the fields of energy, mining and metals, and oil, gas and chemicals.
