Australian companies pitt&sherry and KMH Environmental are merging operations.
According to pitt&sherry, an infrastructure consultancy which focuses on a variety of industry sectors, the merger will strengthen the group’s capability to deliver projects in New South Wales, as well as provide an expanded service offering to clients throughout Australia.
The deal combines specialist engineering and environmental services, and will deliver greater consistency, reliability and certainty in outcomes for clients, pitt&sherry adds.
KMH Environmental, which was founded in Sydney in 1988, provides environmental planning and approvals advice, environmental management, waste management strategies and environmental engineering solutions.
pitt&sherry chief executive officer Dan O’Toole says the merger has many benefits for both parties, particularly in terms of specialist capability and geographic distribution.
“Each entity brings complementary disciplines to the arrangement. Most importantly, the synergies brought about by the merger will be a positive experience for our clients,” O’Toole says.
As part of the merger, KMH Environmental will co-brand with pitt&sherry to become part of the pitt&sherry group. KMH Environmental managing director Ken Holmes will join the pitt&sherry leadership team as New South Wales group executive. All staff will continue working in the enlarged organisation.
“The merger with pitt&sherry will bring significant benefits to KMH’s team and our clients,” Holmes says.
“The combined operations of KMH and pitt&sherry will allow us to provide high-quality environmental approvals and engineering design services to Australia’s major infrastructure construction sector.”
