Tempe-based McIntosh sold to Stantec

Tempe-based McIntosh Engineering, a mining service company, has been acquired by design firm Stantec for an undisclosed amount. McIntosh has more than 200 employees in Arizona and Canada, and specializes in serving many of the largest, deepest, and most technically challenging mines in the world. In 2007 McIntosh gross revenues were approximately C$32 million.

McIntosh gives Stantec a foothold in the active mining sector. According to the Stantec press release, McIntosh is a leader in underground mining engineering and services range from mine conceptualization through mine feasibility, detail engineering and design for construction, procurement and construction management. The firm's specialties include underground mining methods, mine development, deep shafts, materials handling systems and complete infrastructure in support of underground operations.

McIntosh produced a downloadable book on underground hard rock mining, The Hard Rock Miner's Handbook, which contains twenty-nine chapters covering geology through mining, mine development, infrastructure, and mineral processing.
