As of 01.07.2022, Hannover-based umweltttechnik & ingenieure (u&i) GmbH has taken over 100% of the shares of Ingenieurbüro für Abfallwirtschaft und Energietechnik (IBA) GmbH, also from Hannover.
After many years of successful cooperation in a wide range of projects, the two companies are now united under one roof. With the takeover of IBA GmbH, the synergies exploited in the past can be used to a greater extent.

The new management of IBA GmbH will be carried out by Dipl.-Ing. Andreas Traue, a long-time employee of iba GmbH, and Dr. Tammo Rebling of u&i GmbH. The new location of iba GmbH has been moved to Wöhlerstraße 42 in 30163 Hannover, the headquarters of u&i GmbH.
