Our team of scientists also performs studies and assessments related to other environmental issues. Over the past 30 years, the company has completed contracts totalling more than a billion Canadian dollars in the environmental and water main rehabilitation fields. The company has developed a profound expertise as well as technologies adapted to the needs of private corporations and public organizations facing various environmental issues. The company relies on the knowledge and experience of a team of more than 475 employees.

In 2009, the company expanded its service offerings following the acquisition of Niedner, a century-old manufacturing plant. Niedner’s products include Aqua-Pipe®, a water main liner designed and developed by Sanexen.

In 2015, Sanexen also acquired Excava-Tech who, for 15 years, was our excavation and civil engineering subcontractor for our water main lining work. In 2016, we purchased the Rouyn-Noranda firm Regénération, specializing in the revegetation of mining sites. Both companies merged with Sanexen at the end of 2016.

On July 6, 2017, Logistec acquired 51% of the Toronto firm  Fer-Pal, who, since 2001, has been our Aqua-Pipe licensee in Ontario and 7 American states. Through this transaction, Sanexen’s territory now covers all of North America.

Sanexen also owns 49% of Qikiqtaaluk Environmental (QE), an Inuit company based in Iqaluit (Nunavut). This partnership has positioned Sanexen to offer its expertise in all areas of Canada’s North. Sanexen is also in partnership with Avataani, a company serving the region of Nunavik.

Focusing on the future, the company offers its clients a unique expertise in the field and a team that is dedicated to solving their issues.

Sanexen’s Beginnings

Beginning as a division of Groupe Sanivan, a firm specialized in industrial cleaning services, Sanexen was established in 1985. In 1991, a group of employees acquired Sanexen. Shortly after, Logistec, a marine transportation service provider, became the majority shareholder in the company, while management personnel retained 30% of shares. In 2016, Logistec acquired the remaining shares held by a group of 12 company executives giving them 100% of Sanexen’s shares.
