Dr Tillmanns & Partner GmbH, an environmental and geotechnical engineering firm headquartered in Bergheim, Germany, joined RSK in February 2019. The company provides advice on and services in soil and groundwater contamination, rehabilitation planning and monitoring, landfill technology and planning, subsoil investigations, geothermics, hydrogeology and soil mechanics. In addition to undertaking fieldwork, the company has an accredited in-house earthworks laboratory. With a staff of more than 20 geologists, mineralogists, geographers and other scientific professionals, it is one of the largest private companies of its kind in North Rhine-Westphalia. The acquisition presented an exciting opportunity for RSK to expand in Europe over the next few years, particularly in site investigation. Moreover, it has helped the group to strengthen and diversify RSK Alenco, its existing business in Germany.
