Ginger acquires the engineering consultancy Conseils Conseils & Environnement
On 2 June 2021, in Lyon, Ginger signed the acquisition agreement for Conseils & Environnement, an engineering firm based in Belfort.
Conseils & Environnement is an environmental consulting and engineering firm specialised in managing polluted sites and soils in complex environments, including the handling of chemical issues, radiological risks, and asbestos hazards for buildings and soils.
With 20 employees, a three agency network, and revenue of €2.5 million, Conseils & Environnement consolidates Ginger BURGEAP’s leading position in the field of treating contaminated sites and soils.
Certified by the Laboratoire National d’Essais (LNE) A/B/D, Conseils & Environnement will be consolidated as a subsidiary of Ginger BURGEAP, the environmental engineering spearhead of the Ginger Group. This acquisition enables the Group to strengthen its environmental engineering services for eco-responsible industries and eco-cities. Conseils & Environnement’s expertise will add cutting-edge know-how in the field of chemical pollution, including that of nuclear facilities.
After Hydrosol Foundations at the end of last year and Schniering Gmbh in May, this acquisition is the third to be made by Ginger in less than a year. These transactions are in line with the Group’s expansion strategy while at the same time complementing its multi-disciplinary expertise. The integration of Conseils & Environnement strengthens Ginger’s existing environmental division that employs approximately 500 people, including more than 200 in Ginger BURGEAP’s polluted sites and soils department. This represents revenue of more than €25 million in this business line in France and abroad.
“I am delighted with this addition of strong technical skills that complement and enhance the Ginger Group’s expertise in our core business of contaminated sites and soils. After LECES and CREATMOS in 2020, the acquisition of Conseils & Environnement will further accelerate the development of our environment division,” commented Michèle Cyna, Chairman of Ginger’s environment division.
