Boutique Oran Park engineering company Geolyse has merged with Queensland-based Premise to create a single group that will deliver increased expertise with the same personalized service.
Geolyse director Greg Cooper said it was an exciting announcement during this period of growth for both companies.
“Our companies have been working towards a merger for most of this year,” he said.
“This announcement makes it official.”
Mr Cooper said Geolyse and Premise shared many similarities in work orientation and culture, while having complementary strengths and skills that would enhance the potential to increase the service offerings to all clients.
“The merger will particularly enable us to capitalise on the growing opportunities in this rapidly expanding region of South West Sydney,” he said,
“Together we are big enough to deliver results for the largest businesses in our markets, whilst producing high-end services specifically tailored for our client’s needs.”
Premise CEO Anton van Velden said the merger provided numerous benefits to the businesses, staff and clients.
“It will provide exciting opportunities for staff across Queensland and NSW and will secure their employment futures in a strong, diverse and vibrant multi-disciplinary consulting company, with opportunities for staff to take up roles in other locations as their personal circumstances dictate,” he said.
“Joining together two successful companies will create exposure into project disciplines that have not previously been offered by one or other of the merger partners.
“It also represents a fantastic injection of resources into the resource pool of the NSW and Queensland businesses.
