Halifax’s Maritime Testing has been sold to Montreal-based Dessau Engineering, which is a privately owned engineering/construction firm that says it is among the top 60 such firms in the world (and the 5th largest in Canada).  Maritime Testing specializes in geotechnical, materials and environmental engineering.

This continues the well-developed trend of consolidation in the engineering industry, including recent deals throughout Atlantic Canada (see earlier posts).
