M&C Energy has expanded its American footprint by acquiring Arizona-based energy consultants Coleman Hines.
The move comes only a few months after the Dunfermline-based energy management consultancy firm opened its first US office in Atlanta, Georgia.
Coleman Hines provides services at nearly 35,000 sites in the US and Canada, particularly in the retail, restaurant and commercial sectors.
M&C Energy already has 18 offices in 13 countries and clients in 40 countries.
The group said the latest acquisition would help it grow its business in North America.
