A year after Sweco’s acquisition of Grontmij, it is “a company on the up”, according to its UK managing director, Max Joy, in his most recent interview with the NCE.
Max is very positive about the near future of Sweco UK: “We’re a coiled spring, there’s a lot of potential energy and we need to convert that to kinetic energy.
