MAVA and Witteveen+Bos Join Forces

Belgian environmental consultancy MAVA AES N.V. has embarked on a new phase of its operations by becoming a part of consultancy and engineering firm Witteveen+Bos N.V. on 27 May 2015.

By combining their forces the two agencies expect to be better placed to leverage market opportunities in Belgium and beyond. Technical expertise will be brought together to offer clients multidisciplinary solutions that help them address complex challenges facing them.

Mark van Straaten, Managing Director of MAVA, said: “We were ready for the next step with new possibilities for enlarging our activities, both in terms of services and geographically. Witteveen+Bos is a leading agency with top-flight expertise across a wider field. We are highly complementary in relation to our clients (public and private) and in relation to our activities. This will yield new opportunities.”

Stefan De Roos, Managing Director of Witteveen+Bos Belgium, said: “MAVA is a specialist in environmental matters and local spatial planning. Expertise of this kind complements our own expertise and together this makes us a strong multidisciplinary team. I’m looking forward to our collaboration in projects. Human capital lies at the heart of MAVA and the same goes for Witteveen+Bos: engineering is people’s work.”

All shares in MAVA AES will transfer to the Witteveen+Bos group. However, MAVA AES will continue to operate under its present brand name.
