Aegion Corp. announced the acquisition of Environmental Techniques Ltd., a specialist in trenchless services throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland. This acquisition also included Environmental Techniques four strategic locations in Dublin, Lisburn, Wakefield and Livingston.
With 25 years of experience and a market leader in cured-in-place pipe (CIPP), Environmental Techniques also offers high-tech capabilities in CCTV monitoring and sonar mapping. Their technologies and services will be an extension of and are complementary to the trenchless municipal pipeline rehabilitation offerings of Aegion’s operations in Wellingborough. The operations will continue to be managed by Shauna Herron (Ireland and Scotland) and Mark Neal (England and the Channel Islands).
“Under the ownership of Aegion, we now have extensive opportunities for further growth across the United Kingdom and Irish markets. Aegion’s technologies include Insituform CIPP, which was first installed in the United Kingdom in 1971,” said Herron. “They continue to be a leader in technology development and we are pleased to be a part of the Aegion family and bring new expertise to our customers.”
Aegion is a publicly-traded U.S. company with annual revenues of $1.2 billion and more than 5,000 employees. Aegion’s mission is to keep infrastructure working better, safer and longer for customers throughout the world and the Company is a world leader in the renovation and rehabilitation of pipelines for sewer, water, oil, gas and mining applications.
“Our acquisition of Environmental Techniques strengthens Aegion’s market position and brings enhanced capabilities to our operations in this key European market,” said Frank Firsching, president of Aegion’s Infrastructure Solutions platform. “We have a long relationship with Environmental Techniques and expect that their strong commitment to high-quality trenchless construction will continue to demonstrate we are the preferred CIPP provider in the United Kingdom and Ireland.”
Neal added, “I have been associated with Insituform Technologies, an Aegion Company, for more than 26 years and look forward to this opportunity to work directly with my colleagues in the United Kingdom and throughout Aegion to provide trenchless rehabilitation solutions to more customers.”
