AXYS Environmental joins Jacques Whitford
CALGARY, ALTA-Jacques Whitford and AXYS Environmental Consulting are joining together to form western Canada's leading environmental consulting group. The two firms each have more than 30 years of success, with Jacques Whitford having growing from Atlantic Canada and AXYS from western and northern Canada. The transaction results in the acquisition of 100% of AXYS and its ownership in joint ventures by the Jacques Whitford Group. The most immediate impact of this transaction will be in western Canada where a combined team of nearly 400 staff in 15 offices will enable the firm to provide consulting services across a broad range of disciplines, addressing challenges in the natural and built environments. With the merger, AXYS president and CEO Bob Seager has been appointed regional vice-president for the combined companies in western Canada.
