ERM has completed the acquisition of Contek Solutions LLC (Contek), a safety and environmental engineering company located in Plano, Texas (US). Contek serves a broad client base in the Energy and Chemical sectors.
ERM is already considered a leading provider of EHS services in the Energy and Chemical sectors, helping companies operate more safely, efficiently and as stewards of society and the environment. The addition of Contek’s services and expertise provides additional capabilities to address clients’ issues and challenges, particularly in the Gulf region of North America.
“We are helping our clients all over the world address their challenges and demands regarding environmental, health and safety risks, as well as increasing climate change-related demands regarding air quality,” explains Keryn James, ERM Group Chief Executive. “This is particularly true in large production and exploration basins. Contek’s core services will expand our capability in one of our fastest-growing service areas, providing significant opportunities for growth, particularly in the Permian Basin, which is a target growth area for ERM. I am really excited about the potential this acquisition brings to create a powerful capability and service offering that will materially add value to our clients’ businesses.”
“Joining ERM provides a tremendous opportunity for both our employees and clients,” says Jim Johnstone, Contek’s Chairman. “This will allow us to greatly expand technical services to our clients, while providing tremendous career opportunities for all employees. Founding partner, Georges Michaud and I have always strived to provide exceptional technical services to clients while making Contek a great place to work. ERM shares these values and will allow us access to extraordinary opportunities.” Mr. Johnstone will continue to work at Contek focusing primarily on expanding operations in the Permian and North Texas (Dallas) areas. “This is indeed an exciting opportunity for our employees, the opportunity to be part of an exceptional international organization in full growth mode” says Georges Michaud, CEO of Contek.
