Less than six months after acquiring Timmins-based brownfield mining firm Porcupine Engineering Services, JL Richards & Associates (JLR) has bolted on Ottawa-based engineering firm LCI Engineering Inc (LCI) to its rapidly expanding portfolio.
This partnership allows JLR to further diversify its mechanical and electrical services in the industrial market, it said.
LCI is a mechanical and electrical engineering firm with a 40-person complement with extensive project experience in the plant and heavy industrial sectors, it said. Founded in 1994, LCI shares JLR’s focus on providing value to clients through dedicated service and innovative technical solutions, the company said.
The LCI team will continue to operate under its existing banner and at its current location for the time being. Integration of the two teams will occur after JLR’s new Ottawa office is completed, it said.
Marc-André Lussier, an original founder of LCI, said: “This is an excellent time to join JLR, and we are excited for what this means for the future of the LCI team and the level of service we can provide to our clients.”
Guy Cormier, JLR President and CEO, said: “JLR is growing as a company and, through that growth, we are strategically expanding our service offerings to provide added value to our clients. Welcoming the LCI team means we can offer existing clients of both firms more specialised engineering, architecture, and planning expertise.”
