VANCOUVER – RAM Consulting has acquired Encepta Corp. and Horizon Engineering.
Western Canada-based RAM, a professional service provider specializing in project and construction management and multi-disciplinary engineering services, stated the move will allow it to offer more robust and comprehensive engineering, procurement and construction management services (EPCM).
Encepta is a leader in telecommunication engineering and data analytics. Horizon is a geotechnical engineering firm.
“This consolidation of technical expertise creates a significant and complete service offering in design, inspection, and ultimately, comprehensive project management,” said RAM principal Joe Di Placito in a statement. “Our clients, such as BC Hydro, FortisBC, government ministries and other private infrastructure firms have come to expect agility, expertise and reliable, robust services, from project concept to completion.”
RAM noted the consolidation comes on the heels of strategic investments in a growing portfolio of firms aligned to bolster its position as a leading EPCM firm in Western Canada.
The acquisitions have grown RAM’s workforce to more than 200 employees and the firm expects that to rise.
“Our people are our strength,” added Di Placito. “These acquisitions continue to position us as an employer of choice, simultaneously providing leading solutions for clients, who require the same expertise and professional capacity as the biggest consulting companies but with agility and personal involvement that they won’t find at larger firms.”
