Together, we will be able to enlarge the range of services we offer and to both broaden and deepen our geographic reach in North America.
“Equally, we look forward to welcoming the customers of Conti, Ion, McGilvray, and Indicon to our group of valued clients in North America with whom we have more than 55,000 projects, expanding our shared potential to implement leading-edge, comprehensive solutions that will lead the zero-carbon transition in the energy industry.”

Over the past 50 years, we have organically grown the business through strong customer relationships and excellent customer service, while increasing our industry expertise in a range of capabilities – including everything from traditional construction services to becoming a national leader in renewable energy installation. We believe the business is well-positioned for future growth under ENGIE.”
