WAVTEQ acquires Canadian consulting firm Amplify FDI

WAVTEQ has acquired full ownership of Amplify FDI, an Ottawa consulting firm specializing in economic development consulting. Amplify FDI will lead WAVTEQ's management consulting services in North America and will support global economic development consulting projects.

Scott Bryan, CEO of Amplify FDI and Henry Loewendahl, CEO of WAVTEQ discuss the acquisition:

Having seamlessly worked with WAVTEQ for a few years it all comes as a very natural progression. Especially since we had been using WAVTEQ's industry leading data products and partnering with them on international projects. Best of all our value proposition and strategic positioning are very complimentary. Amplify FDI helps provide access and knowhow on the ground in Canada and North America, while beefing up WAVTEQ's management consulting services. In turn, WAVTEQ allows us to spread our wings to more foreign markets and provide our consulting services as a value-add to their offerings for current and future clients.

—Scott Bryan
CEO, Amplify FDI

We are delighted to welcome Amplify FDI into the WAVTEQ Group and Scott Bryan as our Senior Partner for Global Consulting Services. Amplify FDI has developed a strong reputation in the Canadian economic development consulting market and has supported WAVTEQ on several high profile international consulting projects. Canada is one of our most important markets, including for our data services and the fDi Intelligence sales franchise WAVTEQ has for Canada and the United States. We are very pleased to announce our new Canadian base and look forward to working closely with our clients in Canada and achieving strong growth in the market.
