2 August 2012 – WSP Group PLC hopes the benefits of its merger announced this week with Canada based GENIVAR Inc will be a linchpin to export expertise in the built and natural environment globally.
The merged entity will have combined revenues of A$1.65 billion and about 14,500 employees, working in over 300 offices on every continent.

Managing director of WSP Asia Pacific Andrew Mather, said:  “We greatly look forward to benefiting from GENIVAR’s expertise in the mining and natural resources sectors, which will support us in pursuing our strategic objective to develop these markets in Asia Pacific.

“Conversely we hope to export our own specialist expertise in the built and natural environment into new markets in Canada and elsewhere in the world as the company develops.”
