EDMONTON, CANADA, December 9, 2014 — The MCW Group of Companies and Hemisphere Engineering Inc. announced today that they are in late-stage negotiations to form a new engineering entity in Alberta.

David Bellamy, Executive Partner of the MCW Group of Companies, said, "Very early in the new year, we expect to conclude the ongoing talks between MCW and Hemisphere to create a new made-in-Alberta entity with strong national support." John Chomiak, President and CEO of Hemisphere Engineering Inc., added "Both Hemisphere and MCW have a long and proud tradition of mechanical and electrical engineering excellence. MCW marked its 50th anniversary this year, and Hemisphere marked its 57th. Our businesses are good complements for each other, and the marriage of our two firms is a natural fit. It will expand opportunities for our employees and bring significant benefits to our clients in Alberta and beyond."

Greg Lord, Managing Partner of the MCW Vancouver office, said, "Joining forces with Hemisphere gives us the opportunity to add talented employees and desirable customers and it significantly expands our Western Canadian presence. When this transaction is complete, we will have five offices in the West—in Vancouver, Kelowna, Calgary, Edmonton, and Winnipeg." Lord continued, "With this size and reach, MCW is absolutely unique in the Canadian marketplace given our strict focus on mechanical and electrical engineering. Hemisphere will strengthen all our service offerings, including building services consulting engineering, energy management services, power engineering, and building systems commissioning services."

The conclusion of these negotiations with Hemisphere would see the MCW Group grow to almost 500 men and women delivering our brand of services right across Canada and beyond.
