Hydrock boosts Yorkshire presence with latest acquisition

11 May 2022

Energy, engineering and sustainability consultancy Hydrock has acquired 3E Consulting Engineers as it continues to expand its footprint across the UK.

Founded in 2001, 3e has a 30-strong team currently operating from offices in Wakefield and Newcastle.

Dr Brian McConnell, Hydrock’s CEO, said:  “This is a great strategic move for both Hydrock and 3e. As we continue to expand at pace across the UK and internationally, this will strengthen our offer in key territories in the North of England, including Yorkshire, which we see as an area for key strategic growth as levelling-up opportunities unfold across the country. It also enables 3e to realise their own growth plan which is fuelled by the strong relationships they’ve established over the past 21 years with a high calibre portfolio of clients, including Aldi, Keepmoat and Kier.”

Hydrock has a team of around 700 staff delivering integrated engineering design services from 20 locations around the UK.
