On November 13, 2014, Amec Foster Wheeler plc announced the creation of a new force in global engineering, project delivery, asset support, power equipment and consultancy following the completion of the combination of AMEC plc and Foster Wheeler AG.
The new company, Amec Foster Wheeler, has a highly-skilled workforce of over 40,000 in more than 50 countries. Amec Foster Wheeler designs, delivers and maintains strategic and complex infrastructure assets across a range of markets. It has a strong presence across the onshore and offshore oil and gas value chain—from production through processing, gas monetization, midstream, oil refining and chemicals.
Amec Foster Wheeler is also a major player in the mining, clean energy, power generation, environment and infrastructure markets, using its increased scale to widen and deepen customer relationships. In addition, the company is a leading designer, fabricator and supplier of advanced boiler systems for the power generation and industrial markets.
“We are excited about the opportunities that our new force in global engineering, consultancy, project delivery and power equipment supply, Amec Foster Wheeler, provides to our Peoria clients,” says Lytle Troutt, central group leader for Amec Foster Wheeler’s Environment & Infrastructure business. “Our long-standing presence in Peoria has been built on our ability to deliver global expertise through our local office to solve complex problems on behalf of our Peoria clients. Our history of delivering on our promises, coupled with the energy that stems from the introduction of our new brand, will be clear to those who have watched us grow throughout the years. We want to thank all of our customers for their continued support and partnership as we begin this new chapter.” iBi
