Alliance Technical Group, a US-based environmental consultancy, has agreed to acquire Ortech Consulting Inc., a Mississauga-based environmental consultancy, from Kontrol Technologies.

Founded in 1999, Ortech provides services in air quality, renewable energy, and environmental assessments. The firm has over 30 employees, according to LinkedIn.

Kontrol Technologies, a publicly traded company focusing on energy efficiency solutions and technology, acquired Ortech in 2017. The boutique firm had estimated annual revenue of $10-$11 million at the time.

Alliance’s acquisition of Ortech will give the Decatur, Alabama-headquartered firm its first Canadian office. Alliance has approximately 1,400 people across 40+ offices in the United States.Alliance Technical expands into Canada with Ortech Consulting acquisition"Alliance's acquisition of ORTECH is a pivotal step in our journey to become a global leader in environmental services.
