Providing a stronger capital base to pursue new growth
opportunities in infrastructure

Headquartered in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec, Groupe Moreau (Moreau) is a successful and highly regarded electrical and mechanical contractor serving the mining and energy industries. Moreau has extensive experience in remote northern projects, and has developed specialized expertise in the construction of mining structures in northern Quebec and Ontario, Africa and, more recently, for energy projects in northern Alberta.

Transaction

In June, 2012, Wynnchurch Capital partnered with the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec and the Moreau family to provide a stronger capital base to pursue growth opportunities in Moreau’s served markets.

Opportunity

Moreau represented an attractive opportunity to invest in a leading electrical and mechanical services contractor to the mining and energy sectors of Canada due to Moreau’s leading regional market position, customer relationships with the most prominent mining and energy companies going back 20-plus years, and location near some of the world’s largest mineral deposits.

Strategy

Wynnchurch is working with Moreau management to capitalize on new business opportunities leveraging the company’s quality service, extensive equipment base and strong management team.
