International consulting group ERM has acquired West Perth-based mining consultancy CSA Global for an undisclosed amount.
"We commenced, led and we’re proactive in the process to find and evaluate a company that would be a good fit for CSA," managing director Jeff Elliott told Business News.
"We approached ERM and in them we found a company, a culture, an executive team and strategy that matched what we were looking for."
Founded in 1984, CSA Global has grown to employ over 100 staff across Australia, North America, Europe, Asia and Africa.
It provides technical and management consulting services, and independent corporate advice, predominately to mining and exploration companies.
According to BNiQ data, it has 26 consultants in its two offices in Western Australia, making it the 22nd largest consulting firm.
Mr Elliott was the firm's largest shareholder, along with other members of the board, management and senior members of staff.
The existing CSA Global brand will be retained for the present time.
London-based ERM says it has over 5,000 employees.
ERM's Australia division has been operating since 1994 and has seven offices, including one in Perth.
“It is a very good strategic fit, both culturally and operationally; our mining services are complementary across geographies, clientele and capabilities.
“We believe it creates a world-leading position as an adviser to the mining industry.”
