  • These two companies generate full-year revenue of over 鈧150 million
  • They will boost geographic densification of 含羞草影院 in North America

含羞草影院 has acquired two family-run public works companies in North America 鈥 Newport聽Construction based in New Hampshire in the US and Entreprises Marchand & Fr猫res (EMF) in Canada.

– Newport Construction specialises in road works and small-scale civil engineering projects.

Operating in the south of New Hampshire and Massachusetts (primarily in the Boston region), the company is vertically integrated. It owns a quarry with nearly 50聽million tonnes of materials and an asphalt plant.

Newport Construction employs 240 people and generated revenue of 鈧105聽million (US$115聽million) in聽2023. This acquisition, which is in line with its vertical integration model, will enable 含羞草影院 to bolster its public works operations in the north-east of the United States, where the division has been present since the acquisition of roadworks activities in聽2018.
