Ginger Group acquires Caraïbes Environnement Développement
On 6 October 2023, Ginger signed an agreement to acquire Caraïbes Environnement Développement, based in Baie-Mahault, Guadeloupe.
Caraïbes Environnement Développement is an environmental and sustainable development consultancy and engineering firm that has been operating in Guadeloupe for almost 30 years. The company now relies on the skills of a team of around ten employees. It is involved in numerous projects for customers in both the public and private sectors.
The company works on highly technical projects such as coral reef restoration in degraded areas for the Grand Port Maritime de Guadeloupe and environmental impact studies for renewable energy projects.
This acquisition completes Ginger BURGEAP’s environmental engineering offering, which is already present in French Guiana and Martinique. It will also enable the Ginger Group, a long-established construction and environmental engineering company, to consolidate its position as a leader in the French West Indies-Guyana region, with a workforce of close to 100 employees.
Caraïbes Environnement Développement will become the Guadeloupe branch of Ginger BURGEAP, which employs nearly 500 engineers, project managers and technicians.
“I’m delighted to welcome such strong technical skills to complement those of the Ginger Group, particularly in marine biology. We share the same approach to environmental surveys as Caraïbes Environnement Développement and there are certainly a lot of technical and territorial synergies between us.” Claude Michelot, CEO of Ginger BURGEAP.
“After nearly 30 years of providing excellence, expertise, consultancy and environmental engineering to our customers in both the public and private sectors, on behalf of Caraïbes Environnement Développement, the leading engineering company in French Guiana, Martinique and Guadeloupe, I am particularly proud and excited to join forces with the Ginger Group. This is not only recognition of the value of the skills and experience of the Caraïbes Environnement Développement teams, but also a partnership full of opportunities for our employees, customers and local partners.” Philippe Steiner, Founder and CEO of Caraïbes Environnement Développement.
