Ventia’s Chairman, Mr. David Moffatt, said this transaction brings together two highly complementary businesses, each with a proud heritage of providing essential infrastructure services.

“As one company, we offer our corporate and government clients a broader, deeper platform of experience and capabilities. Our clients will also benefit directly from our scale and increased investment in innovation and technology.”
