Wade: acquisition will expand business in growing German market

SEIB Ingenieur, which specialises in the rail and road sectors had a turnover of £6.5m last year and a profit of £400.000. The company employs 130 staff, operating in Germany and Austria.

Tim Wade, chief executive of Hyder Consulting, said: “This acquisition will help expand our business in a growing German market, and combined with the recent Voigt Ingenieure, acquisition increases our revenue earning capacity outside the UK by approximately 10%.”

The acquisition of SEIB Ingenieur follows that of Voigt Ingenieure last month.
