Vertex Resource Group Ltd. is pleased to announce that it has acquired Navus Environmental Inc., an environmental consulting firm servicing the oil and gas and mining industries, within Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan. Navus employs over 100 professionals from its offices in Edmonton, Alberta, Fort McMurray, Alberta and Fort St. John, British Columbia.
Founded in 2005, Navus is an industry leading environmental consulting firm specializing in remediation, environmental planning and reclamation. In addition to these core services, Navus’ professionals also specialize in spill response, hydrogeology, soil mapping, peat harvesting, botany, revegetation/restoration planning, wildlife, aquatics and geomatics.
Terry Stephenson, President of Vertex stated: “In addition to complementing Vertex’s already well-established land and environmental consulting services, the acquisition of Navus will greatly enhance our service offerings and technical expertise in the oilsands and mining industries. We are really excited about the talented Navus management and staff that will be joining our organization and believe this will be a very transformational acquisition for our environmental consulting practice; allowing us to better serve both of our customer bases. Cultural fit was a major deciding factor for both Vertex and Navus in contemplating this partnership. Navus has a well-respected reputation for superior customer service, innovation, teamwork and collaboration which aligns well with the culture at Vertex.”
Brian Salisbury, Chief Executive Officer of Navus said: “This combination of two great environmental companies will greatly enhance and complement our talented pool of staff. Partnering with a company who shares a similar cultural vision and similar values makes an awful lot of sense. The benefits of partnering with a larger entity like Vertex, is that they bring vast management experience, systems, tools and capital needed to facilitate the future growth of our business. I’m excited by the prospect of serving more clients across North America and for the career development opportunities our staff will have with a North American company.”
