Ramboll has acquired the US-based global consultancy, Environ, adding more than 1,500 environmental and health science specialists in 21 countries.
The acquisition positions Ramboll among the top 10 leading environmental consultancies globally with 2,700 experts working within environment, health and water worldwide and a total staff close to 12,500 employees in 35 countries.
“Strengthening our portfolio within environmental services and expanding into new attractive regions, specifically North America, has been a strategic priority for us since 2012. The acquisition of Environ is an important milestone in fulfilling this ambition. We are creating a fantastic platform for future growth and Ramboll moves a big step closer to becoming a truly global consultancy," said Ramboll Group CEO Jens-Peter Saul.
With Environ on board, Ramboll’s presence will be particularly strong in the Nordics, North America, the UK, Continental Europe (including France, Germany and Italy), Middle East and India, supplemented by a significant representation in Asia, Australia, South America and Sub-Saharan Africa.
At the time of the acquisition, the combined revenue of Ramboll and Environ exceeds $1.7bn, of which 34% will be generated outside the Nordics. Measured on revenue the US will become the fourth biggest geography after Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
