  • U.S.-based engineering group Tetra Tech is consolidating its Australian operations, following its acquisition of Perth-based firm Proteus Engineers three years ago;
  • The new entity, to be called Tetra Tech Proteus, will continue to supply mining and engineering services to its large WA client base;
  • Tetra Tech has global reach, with 14,000 people in 330 offices, and annual revenues of US$2.6 billion;
  • Through collaboration with Tetra Tech offices, Tetra Tech Proteus can provide mining and engineering services to Perth-based mining companies with projects in all corners of the globe.

Perth, Australia. Proteus Engineers announced today the consolidation of its Australian operations in Perth under the banner Tetra Tech Proteus.

Under the new banner, Tetra Tech Proteus will continue to provide mining and engineering services to its large Western Australian client base with the same management team but with enhanced capability and service offerings through the Tetra Tech global centres of excellence.


The integration comes after Tetra Tech acquired mining engineering company Proteus EPCM Engineers in August 2011 as part of Tetra Tech’s expansion strategy to break into the lucrative Asian and African markets.


“This has been a great relationship and it has been a benefit to our clients and our people,” says Lachlan Walker, President of Proteus Engineers. “Our traditional customer base, particularly iron ore, precious and base metals, gold, mineral sands, and aluminum has benefited from the access to the enhanced capability provided by the Tetra Tech group”.
