Our combined capabilities will be a compelling proposition to customers and strengthen our position in capturing large and important projects in the future.

“Our presence in the Australian market will be comprehensive, with a country-wide footprint able to provide a full range of services and support from both the east and west coasts. Acquiring RUC will give Redpath enhanced scale, capabilities and stronger balance sheet to strengthen our market position and fund growth, particularly in the Australian, African, European and Asian markets.

“We are excited about the opportunities this acquisition will create for employees, including more training and professional growth, diversity of projects and exposure to work opportunities around the world.”
