(“ENGIE”) are pleased to announce that Conti has agreed to sell its business, including affiliates Indicon Corporation (“Indicon”), Ion Electric, LLC (“Ion”) and McGilvray Mechanical, LLC (McGilvray), to ENGIE North America.

“Our team has built a leading energy services organization across the U.S. and Canada since 1969,” shared Conti CEO and President Paul Duhaime. “Over the past 50 years, we have organically grown the business through strong customer relationships and excellent customer service, while increasing our industry expertise in a range of capabilities – including everything from traditional construction services to becoming a national leader in renewable energy installation. We believe the business is well-positioned for future growth under ENGIE.”

“It gives us great pride to reflect on what Conti and affiliated companies have been able to accomplish in our 50-year history, and we remain grateful for the contributions of our employees and clients, without whom the company’s success would have never been realized,” shared Conti Founder, John A. Conti. “We look forward to Conti’s continued growth and success as Conti Corporation enters this next chapter as an ENGIE company.”

“We are excited to welcome the more than 2,000 new colleagues from the Conti teams to ENGIE as they will be a great addition to our portfolio of businesses and skillsets. Together, we will be able to enlarge the range of services we offer and to both broaden and deepen our geographic reach in North America,” said Franck Bruel, Executive Vice President, supervising the UK, Latin America, and North America Business Units. “Equally, we look forward to welcoming the customers of Conti, Ion, McGilvray, and Indicon to our group of valued clients in North America with whom we have more than 55,000 projects, expanding our shared potential to implement leading-edge, comprehensive solutions that will lead the zero-carbon transition in the energy industry.”

Conti, Indicon, Ion and McGilvray will join the ENGIE Services North America team within ENGIE North America, overseeing Energy Services, Contracting and Facility Management businesses.
