Antea Group has announced its acquisition of Spanish engineering firm, ICEACSA Grupo, whose core activities span environment, infrastructure, transportation and urban planning.
“The acquisition of ICEACSA Grupo is an excellent fit with our ambition of achieving international growth and reinforcing our position,” explains Rob van Dongen, CEO at Antea Group Netherlands. “It creates additional opportunities for us, expanding our presence in southern Europe on the one hand, and giving us increased access to the Latin American market on the other. The latter will help us expand throughout South America.”
Founded in 1985, Iceacsa Grupo employs over eighty technical staff, half of whom work at the head office in A Coruña, Spain. It also operates five permanent offices in Latin America: Colombia, Mexico, Panama, Peru and Uruguay.
Combining consultancy services, engineering and project management, ICEACSA’s expertise is focused on six core sectors: transport infrastructure; infrastructure management; water and environment; coastal, maritime and fluvial infrastructure; urban development and architecture; and industry and energy.
“We continue to see growing demand for consulting services in Latin America as global companies seek to expand there,” says Bob Karls, International Director of Environment at Antea Group. “We see exciting opportunities to combine ICEACSA’s engineering expertise with Antea Group’s environment, health and safety expertise. Together, with our business in Brazil we have a solid footprint to very comprehensively serve our clients throughout the region.”
