Building “critical mass”, industry consolidations. Succession planning of the leadership team.
Meritage Partners intimate understanding of the design/engineering industry and its ever-changing landscape is crucial to navigating our clients through the merger and acquisition process.
In recent years, the engineering, consulting, and architecture sectors have experienced substantial merger and acquisition activity. Larger groups have been tirelessly consolidating and strengthening their positions and competitiveness through the acquisition of smaller companies. This trend is likely to continue in a highly fragmented market sector where capabilities such as service offering, size, and geographical presence are key success factors.
