Tata Consulting Engineers has acquired Ecofirst Services, a joint venture between Milestone Capital Advisors Ltd and J. Leon Group (UK), making it an wholly-owned subsidiary.

TCE is a subsidiary of Tata Sons, the holding company for all Tata group firms.

Ecofirst provides design consultancy in sustainability solutions for the building environment. TCE provides engineering consultancy services in key industry sectors such as primarily energy, utilities, construction, steel and metals and mining and minerals.
