“Écogénie’s mission has always been to offer our customers sustainable solutions inspired by ecoengineering principles. By joining forces with CIMA+, our collaborators will benefit from an integrated, innovative and environmentally friendly approach,” said Charles White, director and partner at Écogénie.
CIMA+ executives cited Écogénie’s reputation and experience as experts in eco-engineering, which the company has been growing since its founding in 1996.
