International acquisitions follow strong growth for Australian environmental firm

Tuesday, 16 April, 2013

Independent environmental firm SLR Consulting has announced two international acquisitions: California-based Strategic Engineering & Science (SES) and Johannesburg-based Synergistics Environmental Services (Synergistics). The acquisitions extend SLR’s international capabilities in the energy and mining sectors, where the company has secured a number of global master service contracts and work on major international projects.

SES is a provider of consultancy services in mine waste and water resource management, site restoration and geotechnical engineering to clients in the mining, waste, industry, planning and development sectors. With revenues of almost $5 million, SES is currently involved in projects in the US, Canada, Mexico and South America.

Synergistics is a South African environmental consultancy with a client base including Anglo American, BHP Billiton, Exxaro Resources and waste management operator EnviroServ. The company has extensive expertise in coal and iron ore development as well as in social impact.

SLR’s Australian Managing Director, Peter Georgiou, commented: “Our recent international acquisitions present many exciting opportunities for our clients and projects operating here locally in Australia. SLR’s structure allows for clients to regard all of our employees as a single resource pool which can be internationally deployed to ensure that clients get the right technical professionals for their projects. Our operations are not hindered by interoffice budgets or intercompany constraints and this enables projects to be completed as efficiently and as timely as possible.”
