RSK Group continues expansion in Ireland

June 14, 2021

RSK has today bolstered its services in Ireland with the acquisition of Minerex Environmental Ltd. The Dublin-based environmental business is the latest addition to the ever-expanding RSK group as it continues to pursue its strategic aim of bringing additional services in-house so it can provide a truly end-to-end offering for its clients. Today’s announcement marks RSK’s ninth acquisition of the 2021/2022 financial year. 

 Founded in 1994, Minerex Environmental Ltd provides environmental services in the hydrogeological and environmental fields to clients in both the public and private sectors, including Walls, Sisk, BAM, PJ Hegarty, Marlet, JJ Rhatigan, Park Developments, Cairn, Saint Gobain, Twinlite, Purcell, Duggan, DCC, John Paul Construction, Arran Chemicals and Jennings O’ Donovan. With a team of 18 professional geologists, hydrogeologists, environmental scientists and environmental engineers, Minerex Environmental Ltd specialises in all areas of groundwater; dewatering, water treatment and drainage; contaminated land assessments; soil classifications and dig plans; impact studies; environmental monitoring; and environmental compliance. 

 The announcement follows the acquisitions of fellow Ireland-headquartered businesses Nicholas O’Dwyer, a leading engineering and environmental consultancy and Smith + Kennedy Architects, which were acquired by RSK in March 2020 and April 2021, respectively. 

 The acquisition will see the Minerex Environmental business move forward, with Managing Director Cecil Shine and the existing leadership, workforce, strategy and brand still in place, as it joins RSK’s European division under the direction of Nigel Board. 

 Cecil Shine comments, “This is a great move for Minerex Environmental and ensures an increasingly stable and broad company for years to come. Our team is highly experienced, specialised, knowledgeable, and practical.  Above all, they possess a can-do, positive attitude. Our core values to be clear, concise and relevant, and offer value to our clients in a practical, innovative and intelligent way with integrity from beginning to end, are respected by RSK.  Joining forces will allow us to retain these values while scaling up both within and beyond Ireland. After growing this business for 27 years I am delighted to see the opportunities this will bring to our team to gain experience across a range of new markets and with a highly diverse group of clients.”

RSK Chief Executive Officer and founder Alan Ryder adds, “I’m pleased to welcome Cecil and the entire Minerex business into the group. Its services, particularly those in the area of dewatering, are an excellent addition to our offering, but more importantly, the business shares our goal of delivering environmentally and socially sustainable solutions to some of the greatest challenges of our time.” 

 RSK is actively investing in the development of new businesses and bolt-on acquisitions, as well as equipment and facilities, to provide full-service solutions to a wide, international client base. Based on its current trajectory and strategy, the business anticipates that by 2025 it will be delivering an annual turnover of £1 billion and will employ 10,000 people around the world.

😮 Natural wetlands are disappearing three times faster than forests: 35% of global wetlands were lost between 1970 and 2015, and overall, 85% have been lost since the 1700s.

💧 It's #WorldWetlandsDay, which aims to raise awareness of the vital role of wetlands for people and the planet.

💚 We need to change our mindset around these essential habitats and their importance.
