East Midlands engineering consultancy M-EC has bought Brighton firm AcousticAir.

The expanded team has been re-branded as M-EC Acoustic Air. As part of the acquisition M-EC has taken over AcousticAir’s offices in Brighton.

With offices also in Leicester, Nottingham, Leeds, Birmingham and Milton Keynes, M-EC covers commercial, education, industrial, residential, leisure and retail projects.

The M-EC Acoustic Air southern team will be headed up by noise and air quality consultant, Neil Forsdyke ‒ undertaking noise, vibration, acoustic and odour consultancy services.

Managing director Eddie Mewes said: “Following the launch of our Leeds office, relocation to larger offices in Birmingham, expansion of offices in Milton Keynes and the move into our new Leicester HQ last year, we’re pleased to say the business has continued to go from strength to strength.

“When the opportunity to acquire an established business to augment our existing team of experts, including a strategically located office in the south presented itself, we decided the time was right to take that leap of faith.

“We are more than happy to bring this project forward, as the current expansion of the business coinciding with the opportunity to launch in Brighton seemed too good to miss.”
