"This acquisition represents another step in enhancing the abilities and performance of our rapidly growing PureHM division," said Jack Elliott, president and CEO of Pure.

Pure, which posted revenues of CA$104.4 million in 2015, specializes in inspection, monitoring and management of critical infrastructure worldwide, including pipelines, bridges and structures.

Growing Pipeline Business
