Montreal, Quebec-based Englobe Corporation, a Canadian specialty engineering and environmental services firm with a network of offices across Canada and in Europe, recently announced the acquisition of MPE Engineering Limited, a multidisciplinary consulting engineering firm specializing in municipal engineering, water resources, and building services.
The acquisition allows Englobe to expand its talent to western Canada. Following the successful close of this transaction, all 230 current MPE employees will join the extended Englobe family.
Founded in 1983 and headquartered in Lethbridge, Alberta, MPE has 11 offices from British Columbia to Manitoba. Over the past years, MPE has participated in a diverse range of projects, including the construction of a wastewater treatment facility for the Town of Vermilion and the upgrade of the Fish Creek west sub-trunk sanitary capacity for the City of Calgary.
The addition of MPE’s talented roster of professionals increases Englobe’s depth of expertise in municipal, water resources and buildings-focused engineering disciplines.
“We’re very pleased to welcome MPE’s team of experienced professionals into the Englobe family,” said Englobe’s co-president, Mike Cormier. “We’re particularly impressed with its industry-leading expertise in water resource engineering, which will be a great complement to our own strengths and services. We’re excited to collaborate with MPE to become a Canadian leader in our areas of practice.”

Our team is excited about this new step, and particularly to join Englobe, whose solid values of caring for their communities and the environment closely align with our own,” stated Gerald Veldman, president and CEO of MPE.
