Associated Engineering has announced the acquisition of NOREX Engineering, specialists in ice engineering, disaster recovery, disaster risk reduction, and community resiliency.
“This is an exciting opportunity for both companies. With Al Fitzgerald, Dana Woodworth, and the team from NOREX Engineering, we now have significant expertise in ice engineering and disaster recovery that complements our capabilities in engineering, planning, and environmental science, and will contribute to growing our business,” said Kerry Rudd, president/CEO of Associated Engineering in a company release.
Headquartered in Kamloops, B.C., NOR EX provides comprehensive design, operational planning, risk management, and project management services.
“We specifically chose to merge with Associated Engineering, because we share similar goals and values,” said Dana Woodworth, vice president and general manager of NOREX Engineering, in the release. “Associated Engineering is passionate about building better communities, that are sustainable and resilient, and support economic growth.”
Woodworth recently served as the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo’s Recovery team leader for the Recovery Task Force, following the devastating 2016 Fort McMurray Wildfire. As managing director of the Alberta Emergency Management Agency, he led the province’s response to the 2011 Slave Lake Wildfire, and as deputy minister of Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development, he led the environmental remediation approach for the 2013 Southern Alberta Flood and all wildfire operations in Alberta.
